Damon started the event with with a 6.63sec pass. The team went back, assessed the data and went out again, this time running a 6.23.

Saturday afternoon sessions were rained out but when the rain passed, Damon went out again on a freshly cleaned and prepped track. The next run was to be Damon’s best yet.
