Race report by Leon McIntosh
This is truly a historic Florida track with a great crew and weather that is incredibly unpredictable. In years past what would start out as a beautiful sunny day would devolve into hurricane force winds and rain. Fortunately, this was not the case. The amazing weather ensured that the sugared track produced incredibly high traction and even higher tire wear.

Throughout the day racers tried every compound under the sun but most settled on their respective brands long wear compounds. The track was complete sand paper. It had what looks like an easy layout but proved to be very challenging with the speeds we were going. The back jump was shaped to be a double-double but quickly turned into a quad because of the abundance of traction to give you an idea.

Qualifying started out fast and furious with over 200 entries turning our for the one day race. It would be the first time in series history that XRAY vehicles would take Top Qualifier position in all of the prestigious Modified classes. Landen Lewis put his XB2 on top with a stellar run in Round 2 and Leon Mcintosh took top honors in both Truck Modified and the ever competitive 4wd Modified.

By the time the mains came around everyone had figured out their lines and because of the traction every jump turned into a Banzai attempt at going further each time.

With the series Championship on the line teammates Leon McIntosh and Landen Lewis were set to do battle. Leon led out from the TQ position and never looked back. Landen mid way through the race started to close the gap but an unfortunate incident with a lapped car in mid air resulted in a breakage. Landen would limp home in 3rd. The TQ and Win for Mcintosh resulted in the 2017 Super Cup Modified Truck Championship.
