This past weekend the season finally came to end for the 2013 race season for us. We installed a fresh motor for the weekend and the motor ran really well.
Friday night we were at Waynesfield Raceway with great weather and great car counts with over 100 cars in the pits. We had a good draw and started on the front row of heat race one and finished 2nd on a lighting fast race track turning in the 10 second bracket which is awesome fast for the little 1/4 track
We qualified for the trophy dash and started 3rd in the dash and we finished 3rd in the trophy dash and that would put us starting 3rd for the 25 lap feature. When the checkered flag fell at the end of night we ended up finishing in the 9th position as we adjusted on the car and had it to tight and the car did not want to rotate through the corners, not what we had expected but again the motor ran great and we just missed the set up a little, but still a great finish!
Saturday night we were off to Eldora Speedway for the final race of the year. Again hoping for a great finish as when we was there in July. We broke a motor, Ouch!!!
On this night there were over 120 race cars in the pits, so for practice we drew dead last, but we do get to quality so we would qualify at the end. We were able to qualify 10th quick and that was not bad for going out dead last. That put us starting 4th in the 2nd heat race and we went on to win the heat race which felt great!
That got us qualified for the feature and with the inversion we would start off in the 5th row starting 10th for the 25 lap main and were hoping for a great finish again.
The race went really good as we made it to 5th at one point and back to 15th at another , but in the end we ended up finishing 10th overall and the car and motor were in one piece. Not what we expected after the great qualifying effort and heat race win, but we will take it and move on toward 2014.
So for 2013 it maybe wasn’t the best season but overall not bad as we ended up finishing 4th place in one point series and 7th in the other series that we run in and we will go the banquet this weekend and get our trophies and point fund money and move on.
We look forward to 2014 as we close this season out this weekend.
for 2014 we will staring off with a brand new motor which should have been done this year but did not get done as my engine builder was really super busy,so we are excited about the new engine as we are planning on picking up about another 40hp with the new motor which will be awesome along with a fresh race car!!!!!
