Kyle Cross took this awesome snap of Shane Whalley chasing down this C6 Corvette in downtown Detroit, Michigan. Here is how the results finished –

The Pro 2 competition was somewhat of a struggle to the finish line but we did see some good battles in the middle. The first four runs went battle, red flag, competition timeout, and crash. In the end Andy Gray looked to be the most promising driver of the day until his power steering crapped out causing him to spin early. Here is how they podium finished along with James Evans going back to back here in Seattle in his Sikky Manufacturing Nissan 350z –

1. James Evans – Sikky 350z
2. Alex Heilbrunn – BMW
3. Faruk Kugay – WiseFab S14
