Chris Willcox continued his mastery of the Masters with a win and a second at Road America. The Saturday victory was his eighth of the year, but on Sunday Quentin Wahl got his first of the year — and went from fifth in the points to third. John Mayes’ solid weekend (two third-places) puts him into second, while Dr. John Greist entered his first Masters National of the year and promptly grabbed 28 points — a second on Saturday and a well-fought fourth on Sunday, including leading a lap — to get him in the top 15 in points for the year…
