In the largest class, 17.5 Touring, Awesomatix USA would put six drivers in the main but wasn't able to secure TQ. Team XRay's Sam Issacs take TQ in round 1 and re-set TQ in round 3. The super tight competition, combined with bad luck would cost Awesomatix drivers Kyle Klingforth, Brad Johnson and Larry Fairtrace all TQ runs. At the start of the main, a mini failnado would cost Brad, Larry and Bill Sydor any hope of a win. Out of the carnage, Sam lead Kyle for the first few laps with Team XRay's Eric Anderson in 3rd. Early on Kyle and Eric would swap places once, and then give them back the lap later. On the 25th lap Sam would tap out allowing the hard charging Kyle to take over the lead. The rest of the podium would be decided with just four laps to go when Eric fell victim of "XRay on XRay crime" after a body tuck from team mate Dan Hamann allowed last year's winner, Michael Hanulec to promote himself into 3rd after starting 9th.
17.5 TC Finishing Order:
1. Kyle Klingforth [Awesomatix]
2. Sam Issacs
3. Michael Hanulec [Awesomatix]
4. Manny Flores [Awesomatix]
5. Dan Hamann
6. Brad Johnson [Awesomatix]
7. Eric Anderson
8. Mike Wise
9. Larry Fairtrace [Awesomatix]
10. Bill Sydor [Awesomatix]
In 13.5 Touring, Kyle Klingforth would take the TQ in the 4th round over Sam Issacs and Brad Johnson. The TOP 3 were separated by less than 0.8s so we knew the battle for the win would be exciting. All in all, Awesomatix's four team drivers who entered 13.5 TC would made the main. During the A-main traffic would rob Brad Johnson of a chance at the win while lapping the mixed speed field. The battle for the lead would continue with Sam applying extreme pressure on Kyle throughout the run. Their battle would be nearly ruined by lap traffic during the mid way point, but Sam graciously let Kyle back into the lead so they could continue their battle. After 6 long minutes Kyle won with Sam less than 2 seconds behind.
13.5 TC Finishing Order:
2. Sam Issacs
3. Drew Ellis
4. Bill Sydor [Awesomatix]
5. Dan Hamann
6. Patrick Clark
7. Tim Mclntyre
8. Brent Klingforth [Awesomatix]
9. Warren Weaver
Finally in Modified Touring, both Josh Cyrul and Kyle Klingforth would qualify for the A-main. Modified Touring proved to be the second most popular class over 13.5 TC this year. In the main, Kyle's luck would end on lap 1 but Josh would charge from 10th on the grid up to 4th until an altercation with lap traffic cause him to need to get marshaled and fall down the order. Hopefully next year we'll see a lot more Awesomatix in the modified class fielding our new A800 Touring Car.
Win or lose - the team showed great pace, and tremendous support of their team mates and customers. This year was the first for AwesomatixUSA to sponsor the Halloween Classic -- but it certainly be the last!

In 13.5 Touring, Kyle Klingforth was the class of the field, TQ'ing multiple rounds over Team XRay's Drew Ellis, last year's 13.5 winner. Jake Danilchik put it in the big show during last chance qualifying. In the main, Kyle would lead from tone to tone taking the win. 5280 local, Syndr0me, would finish in the runner up spot and Cory Parsons would finish off the top 3.
This year, Team Awesomatix USA was out in force running big boy classes, leaving one lone soldier, Bill Sydor to attempt to defend the team's 17.5 victory from last year. Bill would go on to repeat his TQ for the class performing his fastest run in round 2. In the main, Bill would lead from Art Scrimo until lap 10 when a series of taps started to drop bill down the running order. Bill would recover to finish 3rd, behind Cory Parsons who took the win and Sydr0me scoring his second 2nd place finish of the day.
In Modified Touring, Kyle Klingforth would challenge XRay's Paul Lemeuix and Associated's Keven Hebert for overall TQ round over round. In the final round of qualifying, Blake Bell grabbed the last position in the A-main to join Kyle starting 3rd. The A-main win went to Paul, followed by Keven and Ralph Burch.

QualifyingAfter two days, and four rounds of qualifying, Mike Gee would find himself in the TQ position on his own lap (~3 second advantage). Prior TQ holders Robbie Dodge [XRay] and Larry Fairtrace [Awesomatix] would find themselves in 3rd and 4th position after the fast 4th round of qualifying. All in all, 5 Awesomatix touring cars would make the highly competitive race field.
A1Mike Gee would lead from the tone while the rest of the pack would pile up on the first lap. Eric Anderson would hold the second place position until lap 13 when Robbie Dodge would get by after a mistake by Eric. Another mistake on the difficult layout would drop Eric to 4th and promote Craig Xavier to 3rd. Rounding out the top 5 was Bill Sydor working his way up from 9th on the grid.
A2A2 would have an exciting start with 3rd place qualifier Robbie Dodge not starting and collecting a few people on the tone. Gee and Eric would break free from the chaos with Craig, Danny Jenkins and Michael Hanulec in tow. On lap 4, Eric would have a bobble dropping him to 5th place, and promoting Craig, Danny and Michael up a position. This trio would battle for 2nd place until the end of the race allowing Gee to cruise to the win.
