The SSCA Prototypes headed to the cornfields of Lexington, Ohio to do battle at the 2.4 mile 13 turn twisty at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The 35 lap sprint race, the second race for the SSCA in the 2012 Season 1 session was a flag to flag victory for German Afanador of vApex Racing. German led all 35 laps but the race was not your typical walk in the park. Fuel strategy for the HPD cars was quite important as the Honda powerplants were quite thirsty around the Mid-Ohio circuit. German had to short shift for quite a bit at the end of the race, but was still fast enough to win by 40 seconds over Troy Harder who actually ran out of fuel crossing the finish line. The bronze medal went to Antonio Giovani Dias who passed Howard McMillion on the last laps when Howard Ran out of fuel himself.

First place in the Riley Daytona Prototypes went to Scott McDonough who ran a flawless race in taking the victory. I know it was flawless as I followed him around the track for the entire race running my own flawed fuel strategy race. Second place went to John Cousland and Josh Hammett of vApex Racing rounded out the podium.

The overriding theme of the race was once again, respect for your fellow driver and excellent communication between the classes. This series has gotten off to a fantastic start with its first two races with some truly fun racing.

Next Sunday, the series heads to the Ardennes Forest, and the magnificent Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. Hope to see you all there.
