Perris, California – Temperatures cooled off as the racing heated up for “Champions Night” at Perris Auto Speedway. The stakes were raised when officials announced each class would have an extra five laps, making it a twenty-five lap main event. This made for the best racing of the year.

Tim Pyle drove the hardest race of the year to come from behind and win his third podium of the season. The number 5 AMSOIL / Guaranteed Healthcare Insurance Camaro started third when the green flag waved and quickly took command of second place in turn two. Pyle immediately applied pressure to the 99 Ford leading the race and waited for an opportunity to move into first place. On lap five they encountered traffic causing the number 99 to get out of shape in the back stretch. This allow the number 5 to go to the bottom and attempt to make the pass. Unfortunately, the 99 went low as well and the two ended up getting into each other. This brought out the caution and both cars restarted at the back.

Pyle managed to keep his cool and regained four positions before the next yellow putting him in sixth place. He continued work his way up to fourth when the number 87 lost a door and brought out the caution for debris. With less than ten laps to go, the green flag came out for the last time and Pyle was able to pass the number 88 and 26 to find himself in second. The leader had checked out and was able to keep half of a lap lead between himself and the pack. Lap traffic made it especialiy difficult to maintain position, but the AMSOIL Camaro was able to bring home his third consecutive second place finish to make a total four for the season.

“This is the kind of finish the team needed to end the season with. We missed a few races which put us behind in the points. Now it’s time to regroup and prepare for a serious run for the championship next season. Thanks to those who have supported us in 2009.”, said Pyle after the race.
