HEAT 2

Tommy got a mid pack start and worked his way up to 9th at the finish. The track is fast with the outdoor section and extra long start straight. Tommy is looking good in the monster whoops which will be a major factor in the main event.

SEMI 2

Semi 2 Tommy gated good and by the first lap Tommy moved into 6th and by lap 3, he drove past Nicoletti for 4th to make sure he qualified this weekend. A soild ride for Tommy to get in the main without going through the LCQ. There’s a lot of opportunity in the main for a good finish with the fast and tricky Glendale track.

MAIN

Bolting out of the gate, Tommy flew down the long start straight from the outside and was in the top 5 coming out of the sweeping first turn. The pace was frantic in the early laps and Tommy was holding down 10th. Racing with brother Wil in 13th for half the main, Tommy got caught into a battle with Nicoletti, Alessi, Pourcel and Weimer for the rest of the main. Eventually, Tommy finished in 15th in Glendale, his best finish of the season. Earning 6 points tonight, Tommy is 20th in the series points with potential to advance up the standings with each round.
