Gee, Sydor & Flores TQ & win at Indoor Champs

Gee, Sydor & Flores TQ & win at Indoor Champs

This past weekend was the 35th running of the US Indoor Champs, held this year at the Holiday Inn in Cleveland, Ohio. The event saw over 200 entries, and 31 heats overall. 17.5T was the biggest touring class with 40 entries, with the USVTA, USGT, 13.5T, and Modified classes also offered for TCs. This years track was very tricky combining a tight layout with high traction, soft spec tires and a bumpy subfloor, making perfect setups at a premium.

17.5T proved to be the toughest of all TC mains to make with all drivers completing 36 laps except the TQ Mike Gee being the only person to run 37 laps while Bill Sydor would qualify 2nd. In the main, Mike would open up a gap and not look back, cruising to the win. There was chaos in the pack though, and in the end Sydor had to retire, but Johnson would navigate his way up to a podium spot in 3rd while Cody Woods grabbed the runner-up spot.

In the USGT class Brian Wynn set the early qualifying pace, but in rounds 3 and 4 Manny Flores stepped up to take TQ. In the main, Manny got off to a clean start and opened up a lead he would not relinquish. A few mistakes at the end by Manny made it interesting the last few laps, but in the end Manny held on with Brian finishing 2nd.
