H1 Unlimited National High Point Battle Came Down to San Diego Bayfair.
Tate in the Realtrac/Delta gear saved his best for the last race of the season by jumping out to an early lead and holding off a hard-charging J. Michael Kelly in the Graham Trucking boat. Kelly nearly passed Tate but by Lap 4 Tate pulled ahead for good. Kelly finished second and Shane took third in the final.
Earlier in the day, Shane locked up the national championship when Tate was penalized for crossing through a restricted area on the course and lost points, which helped Shane’s Madison, Indiana-based team win its eighth national championship since 2008.
The NewsJournal will have an exclusive, complete in-depth race report coming in the November issue.
