It was 12 cars for the Lombard North Central round and Danny Sullivan was quickest in practice to secure pole position in his ex-Bob Evans March.
It began to rain just before the start but luckily it stopped again before the track had become too wet. Danny Sullivan’s pole came to naught when his car began misfiring badly from the start causing his early retirement. Thus it was Tony Rouff in his GRD who took the lead from the start chased by the Marches of Nick von Preussen and Mike Tyrrell. Before too long Tyrrell moved up to second and by lap 7 he was challenging Rouff for the lead but fell back on the last lap and Rouff took the win by a second.
Of the others Alex Ribeiro led Dick Parsons home for fourth and fifth, Chateaubriand had been fifth but had to retire from the race. Brian Henton’s usual March was driven by Brazilian Jan Bouder but it was hampered by an awful misfire and ran slowly at the back. Jorge Koechlin was having an outing in the Bob Bondurant backed Elden PRH15 and he finished seventh despite a spin.
