Saturday Night Showdowns week 5
This week the Saturday Night Showdowns were extra special since we were joined by the rest of our drift family from NorCal! Anyone who has been here at Super-G when our guys come down knows there is no better place to be! This Saturday was no exception!

Just for fun we have made the Saturday Night Showdowns a point series. It’s all for fun and every participant receives points which will be used at the end of the year.

Points will be awarded as follows:
15 pts – First Place
12 pts – Second Place
10 pts – Third Place
8 pts – Forth Place
7 pts – Fifth Place (Remainder of Top 8)
6 pts – Participation Points

Judging for the evening was Colin Chambers and myself. Thank you Colin for stepping up for the difficult task of judging.

We had 20 competitors this week, so you know it was going to be good!

Couldn’t fit the entire train, but you can bet it was EPIC!

The Top 4 came down to Hao Huang vs Alan Benites for 1st and 2nd place, and Mikko Yang vs Manny Campalans for 3rd and 4th place. I must apologize for my lack of coverage of the finals. I wasn’t feeling well, and as I am writing this I realized I have no recollection of how the battles went down.

In the end, Hao took 1st place, Alan 2nd, Mikko 3rd, and Manny bringing up the end at 4th place! Congratulations to Hao Huang on a well deserved win! Originally from NorCal, Hao says he seems to drive better when his NorCal backup is in the house! I personally think he always drives well, but the wins do prove it! We also witnessed the changing of the leader in our points series!!! Alan Benites is the current points leader! The man is a beast!

1st – Hao Huang, 2nd – Alan Benites, and 3rd – Mikko Yang
Manny up in the mix for 4th!
