Menasha, WI: With the points chase coming down to the wire, 4x4 Open rider Zac Zakowski was back to lighting fumes and burning rubber this weekend as the GNCC’s headed to Somerset, PA.  Zac not only took his 9th straight holeshot, but swept the 3rd place spot, taking 3rd overall, 3rd overall utility, and 3rd in 4x4 Open.

With a season where nothing seemed to go right, with injury and pure bad-luck, this finish was long awaited in the ZMS pits.  Taking the holeshot, Zac led the field for much of the first lap before settling into third in the freight train.  Feeling comfortable with the pace, Zac kept tight with the leaders just waiting to make a move.

Once in 2nd, the crosshairs were set on the number one spot with two laps to go.  The pits were humming as Paul Zakowski and crew made a last minute call to not stop for fuel.  Only 15 seconds behind first place and gaining, a flicker in the engine made everyone’s heart stop.

With one lap left Zac was not just able to hold on until the finish, but with an engine struggling to stay together he would fight tooth and nail all the way until the end with 2nd, not losing much time on 1st in doing so.

“Man I’m so happy to be back up here on the podium, problems aside.  I had an awesome race going and even when I had half the power at the end I was still able to keep up with these guys and swap some paint!  I definitely don’t want to get off of the podium from here on out!” stated Zakowski.

Lites rider Kevin Trantham took control of the holeshot, trying to synch the Lites championship early on.  Kevin strutted his stuff as he led the pack to the first rock section.  Halfway through the grueling rock garden, a rock would jar the front end just right, breaking a steering component and leaving Kevin stranded.

With the typical ups and down of racing, ZMS and racers are finally starting to get back into the right grove and make it happen.  With Zac back on his game, Kevin ever so close to a championship, and the success of Marko Jager, ZMS is on the move and not about to go anywhere.
