World Formula Modified Tour

On a hot and sunny day the World Formula Modified Tour was ready for action after a timely lay off. There were no heats on this day. It would be a heads up start after running time trials. George Bark set fast time and started on the pole with Tommy Kosch staring along side in 2nd. At the wave of the green flag Tommy Kosch jumped into the lead. Tommy Kosch and George Bark set a torrid pace. Getting into lapped traffic George started putting the pressure on Tommy. Tommy Kosch was able to hold off George’s attempts while running in traffic with George pulling alongside several times.

With more than half way complete Tommy and George had lapped up to the forth spot. With the groove very narrow and an ill handling car Tommy did all he could to keep George from getting to the bottom in the corners. With an impressive run George had to find another way around Tommy Kosch. George was making a run at the outside groove and making it work and with the 2 lap to go sign in the air George made his bid for the lead. Contact was made by the two. As George and Tommy came together going through the first and second turns with George spinning his Bark Racing number one around and Tommy being sent to the rear of the field. With just two laps remaining Arnold Riley of Vernon, N.J. inherited the lead with Adam Kievit now in second running the Bark Racing 44.

At the checkers it would be Arnold Riley holding on for the win and Adam Kievit coming home in second. George Bark made a nice comeback to finish third and Tommy Kosch finishing up in the fourth spot, with Dave Jerome rounding out the top five.
