Morganti takes FORGASS Rd5 win
The 5th round of the FORGASS Florida State series took place last weekend at the tricky Fort Myers track. In qualifying Serpent racer DJ Apolaro showed everyone the fast way around the track bumping his teammate Paolo Morganti from the top spot in the last round with a very fast 25 lap qualifier. The start of the A Final did not go well for the top qualifier, his engine flaming out as the cars were staging for the start meaning he had to start from the pit lane almost a full lap down. Paolo immediately took the lead and began to pull away from most of the field. Meanwhile DJ was on a mission and by the second round of fuel stops had worked himself into 2nd position where he stayed until 2 minutes remaining when he crashed heavily in the chicane, ending his race. This left Paolo unchallenged to the end, coming home ahead of Shepherd racer Scotty Gray in 2nd, while DJ managed to still take 3rd spot, such was his advantage at the time of the crash.
