Dustin Dominguez set a new track record with a 1:14.317 lap time in winning the Formula 1 Expert race during CMRA’s stop at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit (Hallett, Oklahoma) on Sunday, September 24. Dominguez’s record-setting ride capping a tremendous weekend of riding for Dunlop racers, with nine first place finishes among a parade of podium appearances.

During the Formula 1 race Dominguez actually posted the TWO fastest lap times in track history. On Lap 3 of the Formula 1 race, Dominguez posted the 1:14.317 time and backed that up with a 1:14.368 on Lap 4 of the race. The old track record was 1:14.371.

Earlier in the weekend, fellow Dunlop rider Conner Blevins, who placed second to Dominguez in the Formula 1 race, earned three first place finishes of his own, in the Superstock C, Superbike B, and Superbike C classes. Blevins win in the Superstock C race paced a sweep for Dunlop, as Hayden Schultz and Alan Phillips joined him on the podium.

While Dustin Meador earned first place in Superbike A and Derek Thomas claimed victory in the 500 Superbike, Dunlop also claimed three victories in team races. Phillips and Cory Burleson combined to ride their Team MotoBros sponsored Yamaha R6’s with Dunlop GPA Pros to the Overall and Heavyweight wins in the Team 60 race, with fellow Dunlop tandem of Dominguez and Schultz placing a close second in both the Heavyweight class and Overall. Team MotoBros (Cory Burleson, Isaiah Burleson and Craig Thomson) also won the Overall Endurance and Ultra-LW GP class on their Yamaha R3. Team Tip Toes & Tonka Trucks rode the new Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ in the 110/150 sizing combination to a first place finish in the 6hr Lightweight Superstock E class.

CMRA Racing will wrap up the 2017 season at MSR Houston over the October 27-29 weekend.
