The Last Day

Well this past weekend concluded our yearly point’s race at SMP, Going into the weekend Steve, Amanda, and myself had a lot to both lose and gain. Steve was in contention for the number one spot still at that point and put forth a great effort to get it done but ended up in a four way tie for essentially fourth place but after all the tie breakers landed in seventh place, Amanda did good the week before but still found herself on the outside of the top 16 by just two rounds. Unfortunately she missed the tree first round and got beat ending her chances to qualify for the end of the year run offs. Overall she did great for the year for being her first year in a car and racing at one of the toughest tracks in the area. I had nothing to lose but everything to gain going into the last race I was four rounds out of the top 16. I entered the day with extreme confidence and took everything one round at a time and slowly marched my way through the always tough SMP field of cars and came out with a win in pro on the last point’s race of the year! Not only did I manage to qualify for the top 16 run off at the Halloween classic but I also placed myself in tenth position and will collect a little bit of money at the end of the year banquet! A win in pro at SMP is something that has eluded me for a long time now and to do it on the last race and qualify for the run off as well and finishing in the top ten is a huge bonus to me!  We look forward to carrying this moment into the money season when all the big money races start to hit! Stay tuned and hopefully we can collect on a couple more big wins before the season is over!
