Kyle Gregg surges ahead
With two of circuit racing's top names — Doug Gore and David Summerbell Jr — missing from Monday's Jamaica Race Drivers' Club (JRDC)/Total Lubricants Independence of Speed at Dover Raceway, St Ann, it was left to the Kyle Gregg and the rest of the field of drivers to keep the action going. And that they did, providing a day of plenty of pole to flag action.
For Gregg — with Gore sidelined by a one-meet race ban and Summerbell Jr citing external factors affecting his ability to take part — it was his former Total Summerbell Racing teammate Andre Anderson Jr who stepped up the challenge in the Thundersport class. However, at the end of the day it was a clean sweep of all three races for Gregg. “The meet wasn't a walkover with the absence of David Summerbell Jr; things were a bit less stressful. However, Andre Anderson came on race day and put down his personal best qualifying time, as well as giving me extremely good competition in two out of the three races,” Gregg told the Jamaica Observer's weekly Auto magazine.
Gregg also took the time out to compliment his former teammate. “People were asking me if I was taking my time. At no point was I doing so as Andre drove extremely well. He was very quick; the Evolution power gave me about two or three car lengths down the straightaway, so I had to work for the wins,” he said.
