Everything worked out well as race day the weather was perfect and the spectators had a great day to enjoy the show. Derek and team had a great day qualifying first and keeping the lead during the entire race lapping the field of racers. “Things just went our way, we had a great plan that we followed and at the end we took the checkered flag.
