2009 Gold Country Grand Prix

With 8 races down and 2 to go, there's some fierce competition for both the overall title and within several of the age groups. On the men's side, 71 year-old Ron Gross is in the lead with a perfect 80 points, and will be hard to catch if he shows at the last two races, although the top 4 men overall are seperated by a mere 8 points! You earn 10 points for an age-group win, 7 for second, 5 for third, 4 for fourth, 3 for fifth, and one for sixth and higher.
Overall, there are 9 men who've earned at least 50 points thus far...
1) Ron Gross (71) 80 pts.
2) V. Neelakantan (49)* 77
3) Mike Buzbee (57) 75
4) Larry Defeyter (35) 72
5) Drue Mathies (62) 64
6) Lars Weston (9) 60
7) Jim Kepfer (45) 58
8) Cody Carlton (15) 55
9) Ken Gaal (69) 53
On the women's side, 74 year-old Lynne Hurrell is once again running away from the field with a perfect 80 points, and is 2 points away from clinching for the 4th straight year. There's currently a tie atop the 60-69 age group, so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Overall, there are 7 women with 50 or more points...
1) Lynne Hurrell (74) 80 pts.
2) Joy Castro-Wehr (12) 62
t3) Linda King (62) 61
t3) Jeanine McNeill (65) 61
t3) Anne King (51) 61
6) Tamara Zuromakis (35) 59
7) Diana Wilburn (49) 50
Next up is the Run Through the Colors on Sunday, October 25, and the MBII Turkey Trot on November 26th.
