Jonny B Awesome

Gary and Jay have received the lion's share of attention lately. That story has worked out better for Jay than for Gary. Brad has gotten plenty of attention as well after grabbing the final podium spot. But the biggest story in vicarious racing right now is Jonny B. He'd been hanging out anonymously in the middle of the pack for most of the season. As recently as two weeks ago, he was sitting in 11th place. Respectable, but not exactly headline-worthy. A solid showing at World's saw him gain a few places. But after this weekend it looks like he's got a legitimate shot at the top 5. He won on Saturday, finishing ahead of Dan and Jay. And on Sunday he finished second, behind Brad and ahead of Halberto.

Jay has extended his lead over Gary. It's over 400 points now. But the big question as the season winds down is whether Matt will be able to break the 10,000 point mark. He's at 9815 with 5 more races to go.

Full results here.
