As usual, the Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs class provided some of the biggest thrills and best side-by-side racing of the weekend. After five tough rounds, Dave Testa, of Seekonk, Mass., emerged as the champion. Testa drove his ’63 Corvette past the similar entry of Brian Conrey in the final. Testa left first and never looked back with a 7.221 on his 7.21 dial for the win. In the semifinals, Testa stopped Daniel Christopher, who normally races his ’93 Mustang in X-275 events but installed big-rear tires in order to compete in the Epping Top Sportsman field.
