I am a week late on my results from 2 weeks ago, been real busy and was getting ready for the big Kings Royal 2 day show at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway this past weekend. Two weeks ago was supposed to be a Friday and Saturday race again, but Mother Nature ruined it again on friday night as we were rained out again. On Saturday night we were back at KC Raceway again for our 2nd visit. On a very hot and humid day, track preparation was not good at all to say the least. It was pretty much no passing all night long in all divisions. We drew dead last in our heat and passed one car. We started 13th in the feature and ended up finishing 12th as again it was pretty much finish where you start; not good at all for putting on a good race for the fans
This past weekend was the Super Bowl weekend of the year for sprint car racing in Ohio and it was again the Kings Royal weekend which is always some of the best sprint car racing of the year. The 410’s were racing for $50,000 to win on Saturday and our division was racing for $2000 to win and racing with Tony Stewart both nights in front of 23000 plus fans. Friday night we had one of the best car counts as we had 41 cars signed in the pits. Friday night we qualified 11th quick out of 41 cars,we ran 3rd in our heat and that got us qualified for the feature. With the inversion in our favor we started on the pole position, we jumped out to the front and walked away for the first 12 laps of the 20 lap feature, but as the race wound down we didn’t have the car tight enough and ended up finishing in the 4th position, but yet another great run! Saturday night for the big show we qualified 7th quick with another great field of cars. In our heat race we finished 2nd and that got us qualified for the feature and the inversion for the feature again was in our favor and put us on the pole for the feature. So again from the previous night’s setup and finish we tightened the car up more so we would be good all through the feature. We took the lead and never looked back. As the race wound down we were racing at times 4 wide for the lead! We stayed out front for 24 1/2 laps of the 25 lap feature only to have Tony Stewart pass us for the win in the last 1/2 of a lap. That was a little disappointing, but if you are going to get beat, i guess it’s better to get beat by one of the best! Overall it was a great weekend with a 4th and a 2nd plus finish and a great night for moving further up in the point standings.
This weekend we will be at Limaland Motor Sports Park on Friday night for the big anniversary race and Saturday night we are back at Waynesfield Raceway Park
