With three races to go in the 2006 Gorge Cup racing season, local standout Dale Cook still has a stranglehold on first place. Following another first-place finish on Saturday, Cook holds a 5.7 point edge over Bruce Peterson. The pair have both finished in the top two in every race except for the North American Championships, in which Cook finished second and Peterson third.

In second fleet action, Derek Nielson holds a wide lead over his nearest challenger. Nielson currently has just 38.6 points, compared to 163.6 points by second place Bob Schroeder. A close battle for third is between Brett Altmyer with 178.2 points and Alex Nielson with 182.1 points.

The next race in the series is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 12.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January.
