TOOELE, Utah (June 7, 2010) - Todd Harris, of Portland, Ore., made fast work of the SCCA Pro Racing Spec Racer Ford field at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, during the June 5-6 SCCA Pro Racing Weekend.
Harris ran a near-perfect weekend in the No. 24 Pro Drive Racing School Spec Racer Ford, earning two pole positions and leading all 44 laps at the doubleheader weekend on his way to a pair of victories - by 3.643-seconds during Saturday's race, and by an even larger 5.918-seconds on Sunday.
For good measure, Harris also turned the fastest laps in each race, lapping the 2.2-mile East Course at Miller Motorsports Park with a time of 1:46.476 (74.383 mph) during Race One, and a race-best 1:48.520 (72.982 mph) during the second race of the weekend.
Finishing second in both races was Tray Ayres, of Woodstock, Ga. Ayres, who now has five runner-up finishes to go with a third-place, ran just behind Harris on both days, but didn't quite match his pace in his No. 7 Ayres Racing Spec Racer Ford over the pair of 48.4-mile races. The races averaged 73.234 and 72.449 mph, respectively.
Oxford, Ohio's Scott Rettich finished third in each outing behind the wheel of the No. 17 PDICommunSys/Springboro Car Wash Spec Racer Ford. John Tipton's ProDrive/I'm Going To France Spec Racer Ford finished fourth in both races. Robert Reed (No. 03 IceRace.com SRF) and Rick Bellew (No. 10 M&M Motorsports SRF) each earned a fifth-place finish in Saturday and Sunday's races, respectively.
Through six of 10 rounds on the season, Ayres has ridden his streak of podium finishes to the top of the championship standings with 699 points. Rettich, on the strength of a pair of wins at New Jersey Motorsports Park, sits second, with 661 points. Harris (442 points) bolted to third despite missing two stops, followed by Reed (387) and J.D. Pfetzing (372).
