Bob Stretch has won 10 TA2 races, two TA2 Championships, holds plenty of TA2 track records and has found himself on pole for TA2 a multitude of times. In short, Bob Stretch has done it all. However, after a waterlogged race at Lime Rock Park, Bob Stretch was able to do something that no other TA2 driver has ever done—he won the Trans Am race outright.
The Series arrived to a wet track on Friday as it prepared for practice sessions and qualifying; however, the rain was quick to reappear and never quite relented. Qualifying was rained out and left the drivers preparing to grid by points for the race.
Doug Peterson and the #87 3Dimensional.com Chevrolet Corvette started on pole with the #36 McMahon Group/Stumpf Ford Mustang of Cliff Ebben in second position and defending Champion Simon Gregg and the #1 Gregg Motorsports Chevrolet Corvette in third.
Peterson shot out with a quick start, pushing the #87 car forward and putting in strong lap times. He continued that way for 11 laps of the 67 lap race, building up a strong lead on the competition. Come the 11th lap of the session, the race went under a full course yellow after the #67 Make a Wish/Pinnacle Autosport Pontiac GTO of Scott Ferguson was stuck in the muck off course and in an unfortunate location.
