BYERS, Colo. – Mid-States Conference drivers headed to central Colorado for the first half of a Sports Car Club of America U.S. Majors Tour doubleheader Saturday at the Freedom Sprints Presented by Mazda of Lakewood at High Plains Raceway.

Drivers battled temperatures in the mid-90s throughout the afternoon for round seven of the Mid-States Majors Conference Championship. That didn’t deter Matt Reynolds from taking separate class wins in back-to-back races to begin the day. Reynolds ran away with Spec Miata in race group one in the No. 74 Reynolds Brothers Racing Mazda Miata to score his second-straight Conference win and take the points lead. Anthony Simmers led flag-to-flag to win overall and in Super Touring Under in the No. 45 Backcountry Pizza/Mix1 Volkswagen GTI.

Once that task was complete for Reynolds, he led the group two field to the green flag in the No. 11 Reynolds Brother Racing/Jesse Prather Motorsports Mazda Miata, speeding away to the overall and E Production win. It was Reynolds’ fifth-consecutive Conference win in EP.

Behind Reynolds, F Production polesitter Eric Prill saw Bill Hingston get the jump in his No. 08 Little Bill Racing/Mazdaspeed Mazda Miata. Hingston and Prill were never more than two seconds apart as the 18-lap, 45.9-mile race wore on, until Prill slid off course on lap 12, necessitating a trip to the pits to clear his radiator opening. Hingston was then able to cruise to his second-straight Conference win.

Stan Czacki won Touring 4 in his No. 00 Whitehead/DGI/BFG/Summit Acura RSX Type S. Jerry Oleson was victorious for the third-straight race in H Production, driving his No. 81 Austin-Healey Sprite.
