August 10th                                                                                                               Race #21

We finally had our best night of racing at our home track Sunset Speedway.  Our team has struggled this season to get into the hunt for a strong finish.  Many cars over the winter, including our team, updated their equipment.  We have been doing our best to get our car to the next level and tonight we did just that. 

The competition in our class is the best in Ontario with the most skilled teams battling every week.  The racing surface is one of the best in North America and allows very fast side by side racing.  Qualifying is always tough, but this week we finished 4th and 3rd in our heat races, our best in 2013.

Our good run tonight, 4th 3rd and 8th in the feature has moved us closer to 10th in the point standings. We hope to get in the top 10.  Things look much better for us.

Mini Stock Team Hits Bad Luck, But Still 3rd In Points

Our Mini Stock team ran very well in both heat races tonight, picking up another win followed by a 4th.  Gehrig has developed into a very smooth racer and it’s showing by his consistency. He has moved to 3rd in points, in spite of blowing the engine in the 25 lap feature race.

Gehrig ran very well in qualifying and was doing the same in the feature when the engine let go.  Shirley has secured another engine for this coming Saturday, it needs to be installed and all linkages, wires, connectors and hoses attached.
