Richard Hilleman was having a good day. Just off Pole, followed by two Heat wins should have been the start of a good day, but it ended differently.
Matt and Marcos had traded second places all day, but even the addition of Alex from the Senior Rotax class had raised everyone's game. When the feature started, Rich fell to his traditional third place for the feature, but starting on the 4th lap, the lead pack was shown a Black Flag.
After several laps, it was clear that Richard was the target of that flag. Rich's hair coming out of the back of his helmet had provoked the race director. Alex as next, as his port battery was unsecured. This brought Marcos Ramirez, Matt Cresci and Christopher Hilleman home in the podium positions. This might have wrapped it up for Marcos with two races to go.
