IWK 250 Huge Success….Big Crowd, Awesome Car Count…..And Now Our First Triple Header in Some Time…..Kawartha Friday Modified, Flamboro Pro Late Saturday…Sunday the Mod Goes to Full Throttle Motor Speedway For A Rain Out From Early May

Jerry Johnson

What an awesome journey for David, Jeannie, Lloyd, Louie, Stephen, Lucy, Don and myself. We did 3 shows and one big race. No trouble going to the races or coming home and all shows were a great success. There were 39 cars trying to get in the show, 31 made it. We got in through a provisional. The car just couldn’t keep up. We had a mishap on lap 3, the car caught fire in the fuel tank area. It was put out but we went down 10 laps. We did return and completed as many laps as we could finishing 19th at the checker. I have been very busy this week working on the cars, and doing show and race reports for my email base. I will update Diary of a Season 2017 hopefully Saturday. I have 2 races to update, plus the 3 this weekend. All good…..that’s what I love to do. Thanks for visiting our site. … Continue reading →

Quaker State Team Has Great Run at Sauble Speedway

TW Robarts 5

Wow, all the work we did to improve our car paid huge dividends on Saturday night at Sauble Speedway. We got the car close at home during the week and made a few changes to improve the Mod for the feature. It was the first time in years that we were this strong. This photo by TW Robarts shows Cory Horner #79 leading with AJ Emms right on my tail and this photo was how the race went for the final 18 laps. I believe, had we changed gears like I thought we should, it would have given us more power, but I am very happy to finally have a competitive race. Thanks to my great crew and sponsors for their tremendous support. The full story is on Diary of a Season 2017. Thanks for visiting our site … Continue reading →

We Finish 18th In APC Meineke 100

Mike

Thanks to my team, crew and sponsors for a good night running the APC Meineke 100 lap feature in front of the biggest crowd we’ve seen in a few years. We left the track with no damage, and though we didn’t fair that well against the very fast newer chassis race cars, we had fun and did our best. Congrats to Brandon Watson on his win. The story of the race is now up on Diary of a Season 2017. We have reached 782 consecutive nights now. Thanks for visiting our site … Continue reading →
