Jim Breese is always so close to taking over a race, always at the top of the qualifying list. He runs consistently competitive numbers and does good work at the Tree. Because he's usually near the action, he often runs into teammate Tim Matherly on the way to the finals. Jim qualified right behind Tim and Bruce with a 9.53/142 pass. He took out fellow modular racer Dave Ginter in the first round, and then it was a clash with Tim. These guys don't take it easy on each other. Once they are on the track, it's a race. Jim cut down the Tree on Tim, but Tim had the steam to drive around him on his way to another championship.
