Ray took third in the 12th Scale GTP 19-Turn A-Main behind Markus Mobers (2nd) and Jilles Groskamp (1st). Larry Fairtrace takes 7th in the Touring 27Turn Foam B-Main. Other tid-bits, there were over 234,806 recorded laps on the Snowbird track (beginning last Tues. & going thru till the end on Sunday)
