OK, back from running around the pits for the last 90 minutes.
Dave Villwock drove the U-96 Spirit of Qatar to victory in Heat 1A with ease.
Villwock tried to settle into lane 2 before the race began. But he was pushed out into lane 3 on the backside.
With the rest of the field jockeying for position, Villwock let them have at it.
"They were out of position to get speed at the start," he said. "I just tried to get a perfect start. All I tried to do was force their hand, make them get up there to the start early. They were into the turn way too early."
Villwock hit the starting line pretty much dead on. So did Mark Evans in the U-57 Formulaboats.com. But Evans was starting way out on the outside.
So Villwock made it in and out of the east end turn first and was never threatened to gain 400 points.
J.Michael Kelly, driving the 88 Degree Men, came from fourth place after the first lap to finish second and get 300 points.
Kelly wasn't happy with his own performance.
"I was definitely one of the slowest out there," he said. "I was pretty far off. But the guys gave me a good boat setup. And a good boat setup goes a long ways. Second place is huge. When you're struggling you take what you can get."
JW Myers drove the U-11 Stevenson Roofing presents Peters & May to a third-place finish and 225 points, while Evans drove the U-57 to a fourth-place finish and 169 points.
Greg Hopp in the U-100 Beacon Plumbing was fifth for 127 points.
