SoCal D3 Can Am "A" Main race results. Congrats to Philppe on his win with Doug Matthes a close 2nd and Mike Steube 3rd. There was some confusion after the end of the race as to who won, but with the race computer/printout its clear to this race reporter that Dokk did indeed win. Congrats again PdL! By the way, take a look at the race best times. How close can you get! Mike Steube had the slowest race time, but still managed to make the podium!
