Race Report #3 May 18th Sunset Speedway
In only his second year racing, our grandson Gehrig has raced his way into the top five in the Sunset Speedway top five. His class is very competitive yet he races smooth and steady each week. His strong heat race finishes and 3rd top ten feature finish moved him into the top five in the point standings.
Gehrig Finished 2nd & 3rd In His Heat Races & 8th In The 25 Lap Feature
Other Teams Drop By To Show Support
For the first three weeks we have experienced a few issues with parts failing. First it was our water pump last week, and this week the transmission developed a noise, but lucky for us that both components failed before we were on the track testing or racing. Our team has been visited by other teams offering advice and help with our well presented race car and crew.
Our heat race brought us our first top five finish in 2013, and then in the 30 lap feature event we finished 10th after making chassis changes on a late race caution. The changes were prefect as we moved from 14th to 10th in three laps.
Go Carts Have Weekend Off
Our Quaker State junior division had the weekend off.
Vintage Modified Season Opener
Race Report #4
We ran the first of four Vintage Modified races on Sunday May 19th. Our Lincoln Welders, Quaker State 33 Chev Coupe suffered a mechanical failure for its first race of the season. Our crew almost made it back out for the feature event but missed by less than three minutes. The car is currently being repaired for its next race. Tyler Brown will be driving our Coupe for most of the remaining races. Our next race out will be June 30th at Delaware Speedway.
