On Saturday May 16th the 13 race OSCAAR Modified season began at Sunset Speedway. Our goal this year is to win the series championship. It will be a real challenge for us, there are lots of fast cars, but no championship is easy. Our crew were awesome this weekend. Marty, Billy, Jim and Karen kept busy getting us through tech, sizing tires and making sure we were ready for our first set of hot laps. Matt and Jon were unable to make it this day, Matt had to work and couldn’t get to the track. Hopefully they can make our next show at Flamboro Speedway on May 30th.
We had a great run in the heat races, taking 3rd in the first and then grabbing our first win of the season in the second heat race. We started 6th in the feature. It was a hard fought battle. Our car was a little loose on entry but other than that it was pretty good. We had some awesome battles with other cars dicing back and forth in the top 5, but we crossed the line in 5th, giving us a great night.
The full story of this night, including the roof height fiasco is on Diary of a Season 2015, located on our Message Board.
Next week we run at Full Throttle Speedway in our Late Model.
More updates on David Elliott, and Jason Legge later this week.
