Weather forecast called for rain but so far it was still dry.

Practice went great and before we knew it was time for the qualifications.

After the pits were closed to the public it was time for the main event..

JAG_0334

With the chance of more rain on the way DMCC skipped its usual top 16 driver into and just had the drivers to a drive by the crowd to save time..

Out on the pre grid Bob was focused and ready to go.. His first battle was against Tanner Munson.

JAG_4033

Bob had a good first pass and was on line!.

JAG_4023

His chase run was crazy..He initiated right with Tanner.

And stayed on him through out the course.  Judges agreed..Bob got the win.

Bobs top 8 battle was against Jeff Laflamme who was driving on point all weekend. Again Bob initiated hard with him and stuck with him through out the course.

And on Bobs lead run he kept a good distance on Jeff.

And the win went to Bob!..Moving onto the Final 4 battle!

JAG_0566

Bobs first Final 4 battle was against last years champ Marc Landreville.. Marc was driving a borrowed  pro am car.. Bob drove great but under estimated Marc just enough for him to get the win..

JAG_0583

Battle for 3rd was against Eric Paradis.. It was a great run for both drivers..

JAG_4017

But Eric was able to stick a little closer on his chase runs and was awarded the win.

JAG_9336

4th place is not bad at all for the first round.. Im positive Bob will be on a mission for one of the podium spots at the next round!
