Posted on August 15th, 2011

August 14, 2011 Sunday afternoon turned out to be a beautiful day for racing in the Geary woods with the Enduro drivers doing holding their 2nd event of the year. Twenty cars took to the track with something to prove under the hot sun.

In the first Enduro fans were treated to five rollovers and this one did not disappoint fans either. The first car to do a rollover was the #5 of Richard Caissie who landed on his roof after an accident between turn 3 and 4 during the first 75 lap segment. In the second 75 lap segment, Nathan Gallant in his #18 car topped all rollovers in recent years. Gallant easily rolled over 6 to 7 times at full speed finally landing on all four tires. Gallant was shaken up during the incident but would be ok.
