Mark Stielow came out to hone his skills in preparation for the upcoming Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. In the autocross, he laid down a 43.92, which was good enough to get him into the final shootout, but clutch issues sent him home Saturday night. Even so, his Second Place ABS Speed-Stop time of 8.47 seconds, and his drag time of 11.414, left him tied for Second Place in the Grand Championship Competition with Brian Finch at 63 points. The real bummer for Mark was that he missed out on the five points for the car show; points that would have given him the overall championship.
