DSR pace lap at the 1979 SCCA Runoffs at Road Atlanta, Georgia.
As best I've been able to determine without actual results...
In order as they qualified:
1) Pole sitter, Dave Ammen driving a red LeGrand MK25 (finished 23rd as a DNF due to gearbox)
2) Paul Decker driving a red/white/yellow LeGrand Mk18 (Led laps 1-17 of 18, finishing 0.2 of a second behind Ammen for 2nd at his 1st Runoffs)
3) Al Beasley in a light blue Bobsy SR2A (Finished 4th at his 5th Runoffs)
4) Jim Boehm in a white Ocelot 104-Suzuki (finished 3rd in his 10th Runoffs, 4th time in DSR)
5) Ron Kutzer in a yellow LeGrand Mk18 (finished 6th in his 1st Runoffs)
6) Dave Leeson in a dark blue LeGrand Mk18 (his 6th Runoff appearance)
The race winner was Dave Leeson in his LeGrand Mk18, claiming his second consecutive National Championship in DSR.
