Happy Kids After Getting Trophies

Over the years we accumulate a lot of trophies. David and I decided that we would donate some of our trophies to young race fans for special events.
On Saturday night I was able to give away these 3 trophies during intermission. We gave away 3 on August 6th and then won the feature in our Mod. We didn’t win the feature in the Late Model but we did have a good night finishing 7th and 6th in the two features, our best night this year at Flamboro.
The full story will be posted by Monday on Diary of a Season 2016 on our Message Board.
Thanks to Louie Halliday for coming on the track with me and taking this picture.

Late Model Racing Flamboro September 3rd

We race our Late Model this Saturday at Flamboro Speedway. Really hope we can get our car better to run in the top 5. It’s been frustrating not able to keep up. Maybe this Saturday we get a better run in our Quaker State Late Model.

Kids Camp 2016 A Great Success

The Scripture Union Kids Camp was a great success at Sunset Speedway. Weather was bad one day, but the kids got double carting the next day.
I was very happy to be involved again with this awesome opportunity to share my love for racing and Jesus.
Special thanks to my sponsors who donated items for the kids, Quaker State, Lincoln Welders, and Permatex. We also got books and nice bags donated by Open Doors, as well as kids sponsored by Timber Green Landscaping and Uptown Hockey Management.
Thank you to Lloyd Lavariere for his help and bringing Daisy to keep Buttons company.

This is such an honor for me to share my passion for racing and Christ in the 4 or 5 seminars I will do each day with the Kids.

Thanks to my sponsors who provided prizes for the Kids

We Win Our First OSCAAR Modified Feature……Don Biederman Memorial

What an awesome night for my team. OSCAAR ran Twin 20 lap features, no heats. We won the first feature, and 3rd in the second feature giving us the Don Biederman Memorial win as well. This was our first OSCAAR Mod and 39th career feature win.
The plaque we won is amazing “Don Biederman Memorial OSCAAR Modified Race Winner”. Having that plaque is truly an honor.
Special thanks to my crew, family, sponsors and friends for their constant encouragement.
Louie did an awesome job spotting. Lloyd was unable to make it, or any of my crew, except Buttons, but the win was for them as well.
We have one more Chase race, Delaware August 19th, then we start the elimination rounds at Sauble Speedway August 27th. Eight cars will start the Chase, we are qualified now 3rd in points,
At intermission I came on the track to give away 3 trophies from my collection to young fans. I wanted to give these trophies to the kids because they meant a lot to me, and the fans of our sport mean just as much.
Thank you Lord for such an amazing blessing.
