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.
Honorable mentions certainly go out to Rheal Kenny in his no 72 car for entertaining the fans throughout the afternoon with spin after spin and without question the #2 of the Mercer clan (Clifford, Charles and Randy) did not disappoint on that front either.
The winner of the last Enduro, Pat Sharpe was among the leaders most of the night and put on impressive run to the finish only to fall short. In the end the winner would be the Gallant Clan with an impressive victory. Rounding out the top three was the #51 of Pat Sharpe and the #13 of Greg Hopkins.
