"It was really great to reconnect with a lot of racingbuddies throughout the weekend.  It was the only event we competed in allseason, so we haven't really been able to stay in touch as in year's past. After having taken off most of the season, it was refreshingly nice to see thatHuffmaster Racing was able to comeout and strike such a significant mark in qualifying by placing it on the pole.And just not placing the RX-7 on the pole, but to break the track record by 1.2seconds" - stated Rob Huffmaster

In the race, Rob had solid race with competitors in the ITRclass.  And eventually, Huffmaster Racinghad to concede the overall victory to the ITR Porsche of Kip Vansteenburg.  ButRob still comfortably captured the ITS victory over Matthew Pompo driving a Mazda Miata. 

"What a fantastic event.  We didn't quite know what toexpect, having skipped most of the 2009 race season.  But to come down here andcapture our 3rd crown is fantastic.  The competition was very tough. EvenMatthew Pompo finished 3rd at this year's SCCA Runnoffs in Spec Miata.  I haveto thank everyone at Mazdaspeed, Hoosier and AIM for making this possible." -stated Rob Huffmaster
