Mods At Delaware Speedway August 17th

We make our second trip to Delaware Speedway this Saturday.  We’re hoping for a better run this time. 

Since our last Modified race we have changed the engine, removed 150 pounds of lead and rescaled the car.   My 604 idea didn’t work because that engine isn’t suppose to be muzzled, but we tried. We were carrying too much speed into the corners to make the 604 effective. Thanks for visiting our site. 🙂

Dairy Queen Event A Success

We had our car at the Waterdown Dairy Queen to support the Miracle Treat Day.    
We then raced at Flamboro Speedway on August 10th but brake issues forced us to park the car early.     Our next race is August 17th in the Modified at Delaware Speedway.

Fuel Cap Not Put On, Black Flagged, Loose 2 Laps….Fast Car

We had a great car Saturday night at Sunset Speedway. The chip and fuel issues were both fixed. Unfortunately a simple error got us black flagged and put us 2 laps down. We would recover and finish 10th in a shortened feature, scheduled for 50 but only getting in 34 laps.
The full story will be on our Message Board, Diary Of A Season 2019.

Delaware Speedway Friday Night….Farewell Event on Sunday

On June 15th we were to have our first of two races at Delaware Speedway but like many nights in May and June, it was cancelled due to rain. They reschedule that event for this Friday night and though I was hoping to be off to get all the arrangements and organizing done for our event on Sunday, I am always glad to race.
I am hoping to be as competitive as we were at Full Throttle Motor Speedway last weekend in the Modified.

Delaware is one track that I rarely run good in my own car. The only feature win there was on July 26th 2013 driving Dave Hodgkinsons Pro 4 Modified, pictured above. It was a great night winning the heat and feature. Dave let me put Quaker State on the car and my number, very cool.

Hopefully my crew and I have a strong performance this time and bring it home unscathed. More on my event on the next post…..Saturday night.
If you want to come, there are still tickets available, a fund raiser for my move east. I appreciate the support I get from all my friends and fans.

First Checker of 2019……Rick Woolner Memorial….Katie MacDonald Photo

The Rick Woolner Memorial at Full Throttle Motor Speedway was a success but somewhat a disappointment. The success part was due to Rick’s sister Julia, and her husband Jim, working very hard to get as much money as possible for the racers who would come to support the 20th Anniversary of the Rick Woolner Memorial. She raised close to $4000 to go on top of the purse put up by FTMS.
The disappointment was the turn out. I think 16 cars would have been the minimum for me to see, but we should have had 20. Only 1 car from OMRS came and the rest were mostly OSCAAR.
We did pick up a heat win, our first win of 2019 and we were somewhat competitive. A good night for us over all.
The full story will be posted on Diary of a Season 2019 by Tuesday night.
