Short work weeks means early race weekends! Before I get into whats going on this week i’ll give a quick recap of what went down last weekend. One of the main issues from the past week was dodging rain drops, Somehow we did but only after getting poured on for about an hour as soon as we pulled in the gates at SMP. Its safe to say that if we were at any other track in the area it would a been a sure cancellation for the day, But in true SMP fashion they stuck it out for us and got things back in shape in no time. My day ended way earlier then I would of liked going out in the first round of eliminations, I put up a pretty good fight at it but my .018 on the tree and taking .005 at the finish line was no match for Jim Stephens (Last Fridays No Box Bonanza winner) almost perfect run of .002 on the tree and running under his dial in by .001. Amanda made it through her first round of eliminations but went out in round two on another double break out loss. Our great white hope once again for the night was Steve, He marched the ole gremlin all the way to the final round but came up just a touch short and walked away with runner up honors for the night.
This weekend (weather pending as always it seems lately) I will be headed to Thompson Raceway Park for the second time this year for their Independence Eve Explosion race on Wednesday July third. Following up by Pittsburgh Raceway Park on Saturday for one of the Summit Super Series points races. I believe Steve is going to take the weekend off due to the National Event being held at SMP so he can take the opportunity to do a little maintenance on the gremlin before we head south for the World Footbrake Challenge.
Stay tuned for what we hope is more good results!
