After a rain out for the finals of the Pro X-Treme class from the X-Treme Gateway Showdown, Pesz and
Tindle finally met for their showdown under the lights.
Brandon Pesz defeated Quain Stott
At the X-Treme Gateway Showdown, contested on June 15-16 at Gateway Motorsports Park, Brandon Pesz
thrilled the crowd with a 3.628 at 208.91 mph in qualifying. During the semi-final round, Pesz
defeated Quain Stott going 3.690 at 204.91 mph while Tindle defeated Todd Tutterow by going 3.696 at
204.57 mph. As the temperatures cooled, fans hoped these drivers would challenge Pesz's 3.628 but the
rain moved in too quickly to complete the final.
Brandon Pesz and crew celebrate win.
Going into the weather-delayed final at Maryland International Raceway, neither Tindle nor Pesz had
completed a clean pass in the first or second round of qualifying, but weather conditions continued
to improve for the third round of qualifying. The crowd cheered the pair on in anticipation of a
3.50's run, and were nearly rewarded when Pro X-Treme points leader Brandon Pesz ran a 3.609, at
208.78 mph defeating Tindle for the X-Treme Gateway Showdown trophy.
The pair will meet again Saturday, July 26 for the final round of qualifying and eliminations for the
Mayhem at the Creek.
