The 15th Kastner Cup event at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in Wisconsin was a barn burner. Thirty five Triumph cars entered and all but a couple made it to the grid and the start of the Cup race.

Sam Halkias TR-6 tore off first and stayed there, but was harassed really close and continually by the amazingly fast and expertly-driven TR-4 of Ken Knight, a previous Kastner Cup winner at Road America in 2011.

Just a few short seconds back of Ken Knight's TR-4 a very close racing war was going on with Jeff Snook in his 1961 TR-3A. Jeff had the balance of the big group of of TR-4 cars, TR-3's and GT-6 covered until the very last turn of the last lap when Tony Drews TR-4 slipped outside of a traffic blocked Snook TR-3A and just beat him to the finish line.

The Kastner Cup was awarded to Jeff Snook for his inspired driving and beautifully prepared TR-3A Triumph. Jeff Snook was also the winner in the Kastner Cup event at Road Atlanta in 2005.
