Pro Late Model Ready…Race Night Cancelled But Practice Session Good2018Pro Late Model Ready…Race Night Cancelled But Practice Session Good

In the off season I bought David’s Pro Late Model that had been sitting since October of 2016. My crew and David’s did a lot of work on the car for 2018. This is David’s Championship car from 2014 and 2015, he also finished 2nd in points in 2016, losing but 2 points. My Late Model has been restored but will be used as a Ride A Long car for promotions with businesses as well as show and other events. It’s been equipped with a passenger seat and looks just this Pro Late Model.
We headed to Flamboro Speedway on May 5th for practice after hearing Friday night the races had been cancelled due to the terrible condition of the fan parking area….too saturated with water. The second week in a row races had been cancelled.
David and I are splitting the Pro Late Model race series this year at Flamboro Speedway. It was to be 6 races for me and 5 for David, but now with the 2 losses, it will be 5 for David and 4 for me. I did book 28 race nights for 2018, my 50th season, hopefully I don’t lose any more.
The Modified will race 15 times with OSCAAR and 7 times at Full Throttle Motor Speedway. It’s been a tough year for promoters with no sun or warm air, not to mention the crazy snow storm we had a few weeks ago.
Our practice session went well. David took the car out for the first set. After just 4 laps, and not being in a car for 18 months, he was pushing and it looked very good, I got to take it out for our final session and did pretty good by the final few laps, turning faster lap times than I did in the past few years with my Late Model.
May 12th will be the season opener for Flamboro Speedway, and the Late Models, and David will start the season for us….it’s his turn. I start in the Mod on the long weekend at Sunset Speedway.
