The Formula Car Challenge Series wrapped up a doubleheader weekend yesterday afternoon following the IndyCar Grand Prix of Sonoma at Infineon Raceway.  Thirty-five cars took to the track for Sunday evening’s Race 2.

In the Pro Formula Mazda (PFM) Division, Dane Cameron dominated the field for the second consecutive day driving to victory ahead of San Rafael driver Patrick O’Neill.  O’Neill was very impressive this weekend.  He didn’t quite have the pace of Cameron, but he remained close throughout the event showcasing his overall speed.  F2000 Championship front-runner Cole Morgan rounded out the top-three for his second podium finish of the weekend.  Morgan hadn’t been in a Formula Mazda car since the 2007 season when he ran three races in the Star Mazda Championship.

The Standard Formula Mazda (FM) Division offered quite a bit more action, including a last lap pass for the lead by Alan McCallum to sweep the weekend.  McCallum, who started from pole, was passed early in the race by Lucas Barnett.  The two ran nose-to-tail for the bulk of the race.  On the white flag lap McCallum drove his No. 19 car deep into Turn 7, taking over the point.  Barnett remained in tow and tried to retake the lead coming off Turn 12 but fell just short.

I was posting live updates from the media center during the event so make sure to check out my Twitter updates – from 8.22.2010 – for a more detailed recap.
