David Robinson Jr. wins 2004 Civil War championship title...barely
- By Bill Sullivan - P
( LACERVILLE, CA 10-2-04) - Three weeks ago David Robinson Jr. of Foresthill had a comfortable 38-point lead in the Hoosier Tires Civil War Race Series. In recent weeks the 28-year-old from Foresthill has had his share of mishaps and hard luck, all of which dissolved that point margin to single digits entering the final night of competition. A final night that Robinson, the race fans here and a determined young driver named Chuck Gurney Jr. of will likely never forget. Entering the final evening of competition in this 13-race series, Robinson held a 9-point advantage over Gurney who had charged into second place in the ranks in recent weeks aboard the Livermore Brian Sperryowned #51. When the checkered flag flew on the final 30-lap feature of the evening, calculations show Robinson won the title by the same amount he started the night with. However, those digits in no fashion tell the tale of these two drivers and the show they put on, from the rear of the field. (More)
