Near photo finish costs SC driver hopes of a state 3-peat

Fifteen seconds.

In electric car racing that’s nearly a photo finish.

That narrow margin is all that kept Scott Community High School driver Karlee Logan from having a chance at a three-peat in the second phase of the state competition held on Wednesday at the Scott City Airport.

After mechanical issues dropped Logan into the middle of the pack during the opening race held two weeks earlier in Beloit, Logan was faced with a do-or-die scenario on the home track.

She definitely had to finish at least one spot ahead of Hays, which won the previous state race. Most likely, it would take a first place finish.
