Championship Narrowing After ROK Sonoma Race #7

Ron White takes the VP Senior ROK Shifter "Feature Class" win.

With the onset of Fall usually comes cooler weather but ROK Sonoma Race #7 had nothing but warm, balmy conditions. This race also brought in a new class of drivers with the introduction of the ROK VLR100 and IAME VA100 Masters class.

The VP Senior ROK Shifters took to the track with Zach Pettinicchi taking the Pole ahead of Enzo Prevost and Hunter Pickett. PreMain 1 had Pettinicchi taking the lead out of turn one with Prevost and Pickett swapping spots midway through the first lap. Ron White would come from 4th to pass Prevost at Monaco on lap two and then chasing Pickett for the next five laps. White proceeded to catch and pass Pettinicchi at lap 7, and then Pettinicchi would get passed by Pickett at the next corner. White would take 1st followed by Pickett, Pettinicchi and Prevost in 4th.

In PreMain 2, they would start again the same as race 1, Pettinicchi taking the early lead with Pickett close behind, leaving Prevost to swap spots with White at lap two. At lap seven positions would change again putting Pettinicchi in 2nd, Pickett 1st at turn two and Ron White passing Pettinicchi at Laguna. White would eventually move past Pickett for the lead. Pettinicchi would retire early due to a mechanical issue putting Alejandro Marquez 3rd.

In the Main Event, White would start on Pole followed by Pickett, Pettinicchi and Arturo Pacifico. As in the PreMains White took the win with an early lead, Pettinicchi worked his way to 2nd, Pickett 3rd, Prevost 4th, and Pacifico 5th. The top three in the Senior ROK Shifter class were awarded Sanzaru Bucks of $100, $50, $30.
