HERD BOATS FINISH 9TH AND 10TH AT HUNTINGTON CLASSIC

   HUNTINGTON, West Virginia - Herd Racing's entries in the SST-120 North American Championship finished a disappointing 9th and 10th after the SST-120 championship final was cancelled due to debris on the race course.  The championship was awarded based on results of two earlier 15-lap qualifying heats.

   As a result, teammates Jerry Guinn (31) and Dana Tomes (66) recorded 9th and 10th place runs based on accumulated points.

   "We're both disappointed in the outcome," Herd pilot Dana Tomes said after the event.  "We were looking forward to the final and believe we had our boats ready to move up in the standings.  It's unfortunate that the biggest race on our schedule had to be scrubbed, but safety is always the first priority."

   Tomes said rescue and local fire and police boat crews worked more than an hour to clear debris from the water, but race polesitter Lee Daniel struck a log just before taking the green flag, resulting in the referee deeming the course too unsafe to continue.
