Victor Carbone won Round 10 of the 2010 F2000 Championship yesterday at Lime Rock Park after starting from pole position.  It was his fifth win of the season, but his first since June 13.  Carbone faced his first DNF of the season earlier in the day during Round Nine.  Daniel Erickson stole the show, however, driving from 14th on the grid to finish runner-up while setting the fastest lap of the race (50.475).  The end-result marked Erickson’s fourth top-two finish in six starts.  Phil Lombardi finished third with Fabio Orsolon and and Tim Minor rounding out the top-five, respectively.

The hard charger award went to Keith McCrone who drove to a 13th-place finish after starting back in 28th position.  The F2000 Championship will resume August 6-8 at Road America.
