Jeff Lampe won the Unlimited Grand Prix race at Jennings GP on his Kissimmee Motorsports Kawasaki ZX-10R after taking the lead from early frontrunner Sean Dwyer with just two laps to go. Dwyer had nailed the holeshot and led most of the race with Bruno Silva, Santiago Villa, and Lampe battling for second behind him. Lampe quickly worked his way through the pack and chased the leader until he was able to make his way around the KWS/Riders Discount-backed Suzuki GSX-R1000 of Sean Dwyer and claim his spot out front. Lampe finished just ahead of Dwyer with Bruno Silva, Villa, and Fernando Silva rounding off the top five. This was Lampe's fourth consecutive Shootout victory in the CCS Florida region.

Earlier in the day, Lampe finished second in the Unlimited Superbike race and third in the GTO, behind the victorious Dwyer. Dwyer also won the Unlimited Supersport race in a nose to nose finish at the line with Bruno Silva.

Steve Wenner was the winningest expert of the day, sweeping the lightweight classes with four victories. Wenner won the GT Lights, 125 Grand Prix, Lightweight Grand Prix and Formula 40 races.

Amateur racer Alan Slaney was the winningest racer of the day with five first place finishes. Slaney won the GTU, Middleweight Supersport, Heavyweight Supersport, Heavyweight Superbike, and Middleweight Grand Prix classes on his Bay 6-backed Triumph 675. He also finished second in Middleweight Superbike.

CCS Florida region's season finale is scheduled for December 1-2, at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
