Giovanni Ruggerio started the year on a good note, scoring a victory in the season opener, and he carried that momentum through most of the first few weeks. However, a mid-summer slump included a wrecked race car, and a bit of a struggle with handling. A borrowed ride after a practice wreck, and a strong finish with a victory in the final race, clinched Ruggerio the Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaw championship. Samantha Dell would win three straight races at one point and finish 14 points behind in second, while Nathan Smith posted third.
