Night To Celebrate.
Sunset Speedway Banquet Tonight……….In her Rookie season, with a well used hand me down Mini Stock, Lauren did an awesome job driving the car beyond it’s potential. There wasn’t a night all season that she didn’t drive the car as if it was a potential feature winner. Her consistent, aggressive, clean, hard charging driving style caught the eyes of many Sunset staff and fans. Lauren finished 11th in the point standings, with 3 heat wins and many top 10 feature finishes. Her car was no match for many of the competitors she faced week after week, but that did not stop her from giving 1000% every race…..Lauren had a great attitude in spite of her car not being a contender, because she was, taking the Honda through the pack with 3 wide and side by side hard driving every time she was in the car. We really appreciate her excellent effort and can only say that she caught the eyes of many fans and competitors but also her Grand Dad who was very proud and amazed at her efforts. Laruen deserves to be in a competitive car and our hopes are to get that done in the next few years…….Gehrig also drove the Honda, but only on a few occasions and he knew the car wasn’t as good as it was when he raced it, a little more wore, a little more tired, but he still drove his heart out, again, in spite of being so out gunned by many of the high end Mini Stock teams……..Tonight is the banquet for the Sunset classes. I chose this year to run the OSCAAR Mod full time and missed many nights. I did miss racing at the very fast and competitive oval and will look forward to competing there again in 2015 in the Modified…….we are slowly getting sponsors on board for 2015 and have a few proposals out to be considered by potential new sponsors. I will up date our sponsor partners by the end of November……..meanwhile I would like to thank Timber Green Landscaping for being our first official sponsor to return for 2015. This will be there 8th season with us.
