Newcomer Jason Morris takes 2017 PHCC Championship Crown

2017 PHCCSpeed Champion - Jason Morris

Jason Morris, an automotive engineer newly returned from Australia slipped by resident Speed Demon Ryan Urick, by virtue of a second round split in the 36th rendition of the PHCC Speed Championships. Jason now hailing from Warren, Michigan demonstrated his prowess in the tricky, time crunching tournament edging his second place opponent by a single point in securing the top spot.

Hopefully we've not seen the last of him, with the 2018 club championships looming for January! Bravo, Jason!!
