August 1, 2004 - Track Record Broken! Congratulations to Robert Jensen, who has set a new Summit Point overall track record of 1:14.401, set during the Jensen's win in the Open Superstock event at the WERA National weekend. Ironically, Larry Pegram, the former record holder, came placed second in the race, and his best time was just a few hundredths of a second off of his track record. Later in the day, Tray Batey and Brian Stokes also rode in the high 1:14 range, but could not better Jensen's time. So far, those are the only riders to go faster than the 1:15 mark.
