Hello all,Well we had a long weekend and logged alot of miles over the past weekend,Friday at Ransomville we had terrible luck and started 14th and finished 13th due to being taken out early,Saturday we made the long 7 hour trip to New Egypt Speedway for a 100 lap race where luck was not on our side with a terrible draw and rough track conditions we failed to qualify for the race,which turned out to be a blessing in disguise being that they started 40 cars and only 10 finished the race .
After that we drove back got home at 6:30 in the morning. We then switched cars and headed to Humberstone Speedway in Canada where we started the feature in 9th and finished 3rd.On Monday we went to Merrittville for a double header with a 75 lap 358 modified SDS Race first. Things were going well in that race where we lead up til lap 50 and then the track went away and so did our set up and finished 6th.
Up next we started the night over for a 100 Big Block SDS race we time trialed #1 in our group and then won the qualifying heat race, up next was the re-draw where we drew 4th on the starting grid. As the race started we took off toward the front taking the lead on lap 6 and running away with it, we ran strong the entire race leading until lap traffic became an issue on lap 93 while still leading after making numerous attempts to pass the two lap cars running side by side we lost the lead and finished second.A very good showing but not what we wanted.
This weekend we are going to to have the car and trailer on display for the Seneca Street car show in Buffalo on Sunday along with Ryan from Kimmins Coffee doing a sampling for Power Trip Energy Drink.

Friday night we had double features at Ransomville Speedway where in the first feature we finished 3rd only to have the cooling fan break and go through the radiator on the last lap.The team thrashed to install a new rad after going back to the shop to get one,we still made the heat race to qualify for the feature.In the feature we started 16th due to handicapping and raced up to finish 4th in a green to checkered race.All in all we had a decent night with a car that seems to be very fast.
Saturday night we went to Merrittville Speedway,but due to the persistent rains all day it made for a very sloppy race track for the heat races,where we missed qualifying by one position. In the consi we drove to the win which put us in the 19th starting position.With a fast track on hand we managed to salvage a solid 4th place finish.
Currently we sit second in points at both tracks.
“Fuel the journey”
