What a night for my crew, sponsors and team. It was our 1197th career night, and our 748th consecutive night raced. It was also the final race of the 2015 Full Throttle Motor Speedway and would end up being our 38th career feature win. I was so happy and excited, what a blessing for us. Lloyd and I worked on the car for a long time before pracitce, before the heat and before the feature. Getting the ride heights and then setting the bar without scaling it. Only because I know this car pretty good and I just knew everything ride height wise was way out of wack. Lloyd and I talked about the race, and though I had David mount 2 decent Hoosier 10″ from my Mod inventory during the week, I really never thought of anything except finishing in one piece to keep the car good for our show at Real Burger on Wednesday. These cars have been very quick all year and though we were getting better each week I never dreamed we could win. Well not only did we set the car up great, we were very competitive and were in the right spot at the right time to take the win. The full story will be on Diary of a Season 2015 by Wednesday night. Special thanks to Lloyd Lariviere for supporting me the past few months. Many nights its just been the 2 of us and he has improved incredibly every week. I am so glad for him because he has slugged, and worked through pain to help get us ready for each race. Thanks buddy, I really appreciate your enthusiasm and glad you were with me for this big win. We also should move into 4th place in the Late Model points standing with our win.
We raced the Modified on Saturday night. It was terrible at the beginning, but thanks to Tommy Robb, Jason, Jacob, and my son David, we were able to get the Mod very competitive. David talked to Tommy and they came up with a plan and the car was very good in the feature. we finished 3rd in time trials, 3rd in both heats, and 5th in the feature.
Great weekend for us………thank you Lord.
