Below are full results for the 2017 TrackTown Summer Series Meet #2 in Portland where the New York City Empire edged the Philadlephia Force 86-85. We really have no idea what that means for the Summer Series final meet this Thursday on ESPN but there will be a track meet on ESPN so turn in and watch. Update: Doug Binder of Dyestat writes, “New York (Sunday’s winner) and San Francisco (Thursday’s winner) will go into the finals with 15 points. Philadelphia and Portland will start out a step behind with 12 points each.”

Robby Andrews knew he wasn’t going to hit the Worlds qualifying standard so he dropped out of the 1500 with 350 to go, and Ben Blankenship ended up winning by the tiniest of margins over Kyle Merber.

Men’s 800: Drew Windles Keeps it Rolling

This race was sort of  replay of the USA 800m final as Erik Sowinski led once the rabbit dropped out, but it wasn’t as fast (52.42 for Sowinski at 400). Sowinski opened up a couple-meter gap on the field on the backstretch but  Drew Windle, 3rd at USAs,  moved up on his shoulder with 200 to go. Windle, Sowinski and Andres Arroyo of Puerto Rico and the University of Florida, were three-wide on the homestretch but Windle pulled ahead and held off Arroyo as Sowinski settled for third.
