Graham Trucking Wins The Bill Muncey Cup at Bayfair and National Championship. The 1 is going on the boat!
.
Once again, in the face of what certainly seemed to be insurmountable odds, Ted Porter and his team brought us another win in San Diego. You know, if I had to choose just one thing, either winning at home in Seattle or winning the national high points championship, I may be hard pressed to make that choice. Luckily I don’t have to. They brought us both.
.
We started in San Diego just 43 points behind the Oberto, we qualified 2nd but we won our first race. In heat 2B we came in behind the Oberto and widened the points gap to a 163 deficit for us. Everyone on the Graham team started sweating bullets at that point because it then became very difficult for us to catch up. But as luck would have it, in the final race the Oberto crossed the starting line one 30th of a second too soon and he was penalized with an extra lap. Total points for the season: Oberto 10,464, Graham 10,532, a 68 point lead making us the national high points champion and allowing us to wear the U1 in 2014.
