This past weekend was a 3 day weekend and mother nature let us get all three nights in. The first night was at Lima Land Motor Sports Park on Friday night. We had 43 cars signed in as the 360 Michigan group came down for a 3 day co-sanctioned weekend. From the time we unloaded on Friday night, the car was awesome fast and awesome fast all night! We started in practice and was the fastest car in hot lap sessions. We started 4th in our heat and took the lead in turn one and never looked back and won by a straight away.
The feature was for 25 laps and we were starting 3rd. At the halfway point we reeled in the 1st and 2nd place cars and was setting up for the pass and the caution flag came out. We did not need that! We ended up finishing 3rd over all as we were awesome on long runs.
Saturday night was at Waynesfield Raceway for our first visit. The track was super fast without a lot of passing. We started 6th in our heat and finished 2nd. We missed the inversion so we would be starting in the 14th position. We got going and was up to 8th and going forward and passing cars but another car went off the track and came back on, clipped our front end and about flipped the car but saved the car. Came out running last and worked our way back up to finish 11th. Again, not bad for what all we had to go through.
Sunday night we were at Eldora Speedway and on this night we got to qualify and we timed in 6th quick which is right where you want to be. All we had to do was pass one car and we would be on the pole for the feature as the inversion was a 6. It sounds so easy, but we started 5th and on the first corner we got hit and spun and had to go to the tail. We did not transfer to the feature, so we had to run the B main and finished 4th in the B main and that got us starting 20th in the feature. After starting 20th we passed a few cars and ended up pulling in and finished 18th when it was all said and done. Not what we had expected but the car is all in one piece and we now know we have a fast car. This week we are at Lima Land Motor Sports Park on Friday night.
