From Bill Gately:
That was our first win (the Semi) in a National Event. We have placed several times in regional races. We got our set up spot on in the first practice session at Indy and Shawn qualified 11th fastest after 3 sessions. He got a great front row position in the heat but a bad start. He held his line picked up 2 positions and finished 6th. Shawn got a great start in the semi and battled it out with Luke Gough and Jethro Halbert all 8 laps. He matched their H-D's in turns 1 and 2 and pulled away in 3 and 4 and both of the straight away's. We blew a head gasket in the final and did not complete the last lap finishing 16 th. We will put everything back together and be ready for Springfield.
