Well thats the end of the days racing here at Shakespeare County Raceway with all the finals successfully completed ahead of schedule. The weather here has been very hot all day, with the track temperature at one point measured at 130 degrees, but it hasn't interferred with the racing and several riders and drivers are leaving here with new personal bests. There was one incident this afternoon when Richard Gipp's Pro Stock bike drifted onto the grass in the shutdown area and bike and rider took a tumble, but Richard escaped basically unhurt, if a little shaken.
