Tim Tetrick and Hes Watching
Pompano Beach, Florida – ThePro-Am was contested on March 4th and ended in a dead-heat with each team having 63 points at the conclusion of the three race competition.
Team Tetrick, led by Tim Tetrick, driving on behalf of New Vocations, got the upper hand early over Team Miller, headed by Dave Ingraham, subbing for David Miller (traffic problems on Florida’s Turnpike), by winning the first event with Tony Dinges’ Wire Me Cash and putting his team up 23 to 19.
Tetrick came back to complete the early daily double by guiding Dennis Whittemore’s New Scent to a handy win, helping put Team Tetrick up by a seemingly insurmountable 49 to 35 margin.
In the final leg, Whittemore, himself, guided his own Lucas Hall to his first win of the year and, with team captain Ingraham finishing second with B Cor Thomas, the Miller team won that third and final leg 28 to 14, thereby the tie.
Florida Amateur Driving Club President Dein Spriggs was joined in the winner’s circle by members of the F.A.D.C. as equal checks in the amount of $2,000 were distributed for Tetrick’s charity, New Vocation, and Miller’s designated beneficiary, the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The contributions vaulted the club’s donation over the $180,000 mark plateau as all driver’s donate their driving fees to charity.
Said Tetrick in the winner’s circle, “This sport has been very good to me and, of course, David, as well, and I am sure that I speak for both of us and echo his sentiments that we are both proud to be a part of this event.
“I know David is very sorry that he couldn’t be here with us tonight but, on the other hand,” Tetrick laughed, “it lets me have my name first on next year’s trophies!
“It’s a great event the Amateur drivers put on and I admire their generosity for the good of our sport.”
