We had great entertainment when 2017 season 2, SC trucks moved their serie to Silver Dollar 3.
At PRO level Carson Yeung from Hong Kong, Team USA Marshall Kirkholm and Spaniard Alejandro Prieto were in mainroles when winner was solved. Prieto had gained third grid from qualifying and took the lightning start for the main. He got the lead but was unfortunent, when he jumped wrongly under the rostroom jumps and dropped to third. From this point Yeung was toughest and took the lead. He led this pack for the first two minutes and pace and rhytm was looking promising. Was he too careful, but after two minutes he lost his pace a little and Kirkholm got the lead. Rest of the final Kirkholm was very consistent, even Yeung and Prieto was pressuring really close, Marshall kept his head down and his nerves were steal... read more
