    Although Kerry Hibdon took the win in the Superstock class he ended up honoring long time friend Stan Hightower by giving him his trophy.  “Stan has been such a great friend.  I was getting out of jetskiing until he met Stan at a race in Nashville” said Hibdon.  Kerry is a former closed course racer.

    Unlimited class went to Chris Caputo on his Seadoo after a semifinal showdown with Kerry Hibdon.
