The great news keeps on rolling here at S&R, The weekend plans got moved around mid-week but it all worked out in the end, Originally Steve and myself planned on attending PRP’s Halloween race but due to a schedule change he was unable to make it down. So I still decided to go to PRP for what was an almost perfect weekend for racing, The original race schedule was Friday night $1200 to win plus a 64 all run shootout that I was entered in and then Saturday having first round of the 5k race and finishing it up on Sunday. Due to weather on Friday we didn’t get a chance to race anything and the schedule changed to running the whole 5k race on sat and doing Friday’s race on Sunday.
Seeing how it is towards the end of the year I figured I would double my odds up and buy two entries in the no box class and see if we could make something happen. Luckily for me that’s exactly what happened. It’s a good thing I did buy two entries because my bonehead side came out third round of my second entry when I gave back the finish line by about .5 of a second…yeah .5! We race to the 1000’ not the 1/8 mile for this race! But after laughing the loss of for a good while I managed to put the StevAnd Racing ride back in the winner circle for the second week in a row and this time for a 5K victory! Also a big congratulation goes out to our good friend Bubba Black for picking up the win on Sunday in no box for $1200 from Fridays make up race!
Steve decided to stay local and hit up Dragway 42 for what could possibly be one of the last races there, 42’s management announced last week that the track is up for sale and would not be opening again next year under its current management after a long 24 years of service. Steve went a few round each day but bigger news was that thanks to the help of Keith and Amy we got the blue javelin back out at the track and working better than ever. Thanks for all their help!
This weekend is the start of the marathon race known as the Halloween Classic at SMP essentially a week long race (and party) Starting on Sunday with the warm up race and a week filled full of different gamblers races and finishing off next Sunday with the main even. Hopefully we can rack up a few more win lights this week, Stay tuned for some updates through the week!
