While Justin Lofton had a clear advantage by starting first, TJ Flores took the overall win on corrected time. Lofton grabbed the Class 1500 win with Louis Chamberland and then Garrick Freitas taking 2nd and 3rd. Gary Weyhrich and Steve Strobel claimed second and third in Trick Truck. The top 20 were within 14 minutes of each other, and the top 10 less than 5 minutes apart.
Justin Lofton took first by 3.379 seconds over Rob MacCachren, and less than 10 seconds separated the top ten. With competition this close, it's going to be a fast, tight race tomorrow.

One of the best things about the Canidae Tap It Silver State "300" is the pre-run, probably the most fun event we host; lots of fun without the pressure of a race, our racers love this pre-run. The pre-run is Saturday and Sunday, April 19-20, so make sure to send in your rsvp to come on the pre-run. Rooms are limited in Caliente so you may have to plan on bringing a RV if you want to participate on the pre-run. All rooms are held by us so please don't call Caliente direct and try to get a room, we will have to cancel it. We limit access to the rooms to give each team an opportuinty to have a room (and a shower!)
This race is a best kept secret, if you haven't raced the Canidae Tap It Silver State "300" you have to enter this year. It's a great race course, our most scenic course which goes through the Highland Mountain Range, it's breathtaking. The pit crews also say it's their favorite race because it's fun to chase, easy to chase and you go thru some of the best rural towns in Nevada; Alamo, Caliente, Panaca, and Pioche; towns with so much history you will be in awe!
