Detroit Gold Cup Heat 2B Results - Evans wins

|

Heat 2B Results: 
  1. U-57 Mark Evans
  2. U-11 JW Myers
    ONE LAP PENALTY

    DSQ. U-17 Kip Brown
    DNF. 
    U-100 Greg Hopp
JW Myers leapfrogged the field to grab the inside lane, hit the line first, and kept it coming out of the first turn.  Mark Evans made a run on the backside along with Greg Hopp.  After the first lap, Myers had half a roostertail lead.

Meanwhile, the race for second between Hopp and Evans was tight... and they tightened up with the leader.  Hopp's boat suddenly slowed and pulled off into the infield.

Evans had a burst of speed and managed to grabbed the lead in lap three!  Kip Brown started in 4th place, but drove that boat like crazy, and gained on the leaders.  Myers was hit with a one-lap penalty for lane violations before the race started and that meant Brown moved into second.

UPDATE:  U-17 was disqualified for a fuel flow (N2) violation.
