Fun in the Sun Friday Results

BRADENTON, Fla. -- The sun didn't exactly shine on Day 1 at the Fun In The Sun bracket series race at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida, but it was still 75-degrees with no rain. That didn't matter to the 160 cars which showed up for the first round of eliminations who didn't care about the cloudy skies one bit.

First up was a single time trial session followed by a Run for the Money time run where racers placed a dial-in on their car and the best package; a combination of reaction time and amount over the dial-in; took home some money. Manuel Soler from Orlando, Florida started off his weekend in a good way with a .003 package to win some money.

Round five found ten cars left; Mike Bloomfield, David Guerra, Trevor Beard, Alan Glatt, Jeremy Bargo, Mia Tedesco, Robby Officer, Gary Williams, Tim Butler, and Camryn Frederickson. Despite the fact it's Florida, the dew point was becoming close enough to the temperature that the track surface was going away. The first pair of cars got loose and in the second pair, Bloomfield crashed after which the decision was made on the side of safety with as much money is on the line. The entire round will continue in the morning.

Saturday's original schedule called for a time run followed by two complete races, first a $10,000-to-win race and the Brown & Miller Racing Solutions $20,000 race. With Race No. 1 still to be completed and a number of new entries rolling in tonight, Saturday will certainly be a long day.
