2009 PPIHC Vintage Class Winner Keith Davidson!
Keith Davidson took Vintage class top honors by beating out Doug Mockett by a full 20seconds. Congratulations to Keith and all the other Vintage teams.
On a side note I would like to make note that Keith did it using the very tires that Roger Kraus, owner of Roger Kraus Racing hand picked out for my car but after not being able to make this years event which just goes to prove that Roger REALLY knows his tires.
As incredible as it is to think about, when you realize that a vintage class car ran withing 2 minutes of a purpose built car like famous RS200 ran it's pretty amazing. Even more amazing is realizing some were within 4 minutes of the world record.
Unfortunately three cars failed to finish and I hope they are all safe. As soon as I get word I'll post it here. They are Douglas Allen's #358 1965 Ford Mustang, Chip Johns's #385 1964 Ford Rally Sprint and Michael Jones's #220 1966 Ford Mustang.
