Rick Alvarado defeated Mike Troxel in round number one. It was a great race; Alvarado had a great .020 light to Troxel’s respectable .060. At the finish line it was Alvarado who got their first and punched his ticket into the next round. Jim Maher was able to get Andre Pegues. James Maher had a rematch from the last CIFCA race with Mark Tarabochia, this time Maher got the win light on a hole shot with a 5.97 beating a 5.96. Ken Breneisen and Tony Trimp lined up in round number and Breneisen was out of the gate first with an .030 light to Trimp’s .107. Breneisen was leading until the 1000ft where Trimp took the stripe and the win light with a margin of victory .059. Trimp was also doing double duty this weekend running 7.0 pro and CIFCA. On top of that he had to finish up the delayed 7.0 pro final from the Good Vibrations Motorsports March Meet. In the delayed final Trimp defeated Jason Vanderpool.

In the semifinal of CIFCA Trimp had James Maher covered but unfortunately went a 5.85 on the 5.90 index handing the win over to Maher who spun on the line. On the flip side of the ladder Jim Maher & Alvarado lined up for a great race. Alvarado cut a killer .003 to take home the Enderle Quick Reaction time award. Maher was .074 and 5.955 at the stripe but Alvardo got there first and clicked the win light on with a 5.976. That run won Alvarado the CP Carrillo Best package award with a .079 and the margin of victory was .050

The final round was set between Alvarado in the Team Mighty Mouse Corvette, and James Maher in the Junior Vibes 84’ Ford Tempo. These two have faced off many times in the final but Alvarado has never won a CIFCA race. That is until today. He laid down a great .072 light and a 6.042 to defeated James Maher’s 6.026 and claim his first CIFCA win! Congratulations to the whole Mighty Mouse team after a lot of hard-fought battles they were finally able to put that girl in the winner circle!
