He took out the timing cones in his first qualifying session. Then, he rolled the staging beams for a no time in the second session prior to running off of the end of the track.
Headed into Sunday’s third session, Top Doorslammer racer Peter Kapiris was exhibiting behavior unbecoming of a point leader.
“Not in the chase, I am number one and hopefully can stay that way,” said Kapiris.
Kapiris righted all of his earlier wrongs en route to a 5.824, 249.81 to claim the No. 2 qualifying position behind John Zappia during the third session at the FUCH’s Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway. He stepped up with a 5.781 in the evening session to ensure he has a .01 back-up for a national record should the opportunity present itself in Monday’s eliminations.
And for Kapiris, he’s of the firm belief his team has the potential if the conditions remain as favorable.
“It’s killer out there,” Zappia said. “The weather might not be that great, but the track is killer.”
Even Kapiris can’t help but smile when noting his 5.82 was a baseline pass.
“We can hit it harder, that’s what my boys are telling me,” said Kapiris.
