To win with a bang! Something went wrong with Rons car in the end of the race, and we could for a while see the flames under the body. As Ron was out of the car before the firemen arrived, he himself worked hard to prepare to give the guys with the fire extinguishers a bit easier job saving his beloved hot rod.

Jonnie won the tree. Then lost traction after about one second. He tried to pedal to get back, but then... POW! Congratulations to the round win Ron and your great team!

First round win! Capps’s next.
