NASA Texas Spec Miata racer Matthew Stretch takes the green flag at Motorsports Ranch Cresson in third position, and gets shuffled back to fifth in turns 2 through 4. It took him a few laps to get in position to get back by the third-and fourth-place drivers, who got tangled up at the entry to Turn 14, and Stretch slipped around the outside. He set his sights on the second-place driver, whom he outqualified and who was within striking distance because it was still somewhat early in the race.
Here again, Stretch put his head down and caught up to second place, and got around him in Turn 14, this time on the inside. By that time, the first place car had pretty much checked out and Stretch finished in second. A well-earned podium.
