Peter Biondo collects 2nd $10,000 Big Check in same day, taking the Pro-64 Duran Racing Products Bonus Shootout!

In a wild ending to the day, Biondo took his second trip to the winners circle with the victory over Luis Valenzuela in the Duran Racing Products Pro Bonus Race. Biondo, who was -.006 red left first not knowing that Valenzuela left the starting line behind him and went towards and across the center line behind him. By standard rule, “first or worse” the centerline infraction negated Valenzuela from collecting the Win over the red light of Biondo.

Valenzuela, who had beat Justin Lamb in the semis to advance with Biondo, got loose due to a fuel leak.
