Long time no blog..

Well it's been awhile since I have's nice to sit down and have a moment to do this kind of stuff sometimes!

This season isn't going that great. I'm not to sure what it is but it has been tough. I've been fortunate enough to grab 2 wins early in the season, but the last few months have been brutal to the team. Every team has a car that just doesn't work no matter what and we were the lucky ones to had a car like that. Our problem was we ran it for 2 months before finally building a new one. This new car runs great, it's like a whole nother world...I think with a few weeks on it, we will be really fast like we were the first 1\4 of the year.

I have been fortunate enough to get a ride with Dietz Motorsports on Saturday nights. It has helped us save money for our operation and also took some stress away financially. The opportunity came at a good time. I have run the car 6 times I believe and have finished in the top 10 5 out of 6. I'm happy with those are they!

I want to thank everyone for their continued support!

Early Morning Update..

Coming off our win last week at Lincoln Speedway was pretty awesome. Their so hard to come by and I Cherish every single win we get. It's hard to say with this competition when your next win will be, just giving 100% every race is all we can ask for.

Well, with racing, there is your highs and there is your lows. I went from being on top of the world to a hurt knee and waiting to build a brand new XXX, ha ha, isn't it great?

I took the hardest hit yet Wednesday night at Grandview Speedway. I made a mistake when trying to set up a pass on the nights feature winner, Brian Leppo. Congrats to Brian by the way... But that is part of this whole deal, I bet I won't do it again.

Anyway, just letting everyone know, everything is good and we're still hard at it. Thanks for all the support!

I'm living the dream of a hard working dedicated sprint car driver! P.S. it's hard to find sleep with this dream :)

Rain Rain Rain...

It never stops, does it? Tonights World of Outlaw race at Williams Grove was canceled due to a light mist that would not go away...

Off to Lincoln tommorrow, hopefully! More rain on the forecast... isn't spring great? HA!

Friday Night Review

I am proud to say that we have figured some things out for time trials and did really well Friday night. We were 9th fastest overall in practice and timed in at 17.327 and placing us in 6th place. I was very pleased and to be honest, it made my night despite us sinking ourselves in the heat race. We just made an honest mistake and misread the track. We took the rest of the night and used it as a learning session, especially after getting caught up on the opening lap wreck in turn 3 and 4.

It felt like we would have had a good car for the feature until that wrecked set us back a good ways. Kind of took the wind out of my sail, but you know, that's racing and we don't stop fighting till the race is over...

Like I said, to time in 6th fastest against the World of Outlaws is a huge accomplishment for us. That shows we're making small leaps and getting better. It so freaking tough having a young team with absolutely no sprint car experience at all go out there and beat guys who have been in this game for 10, 20, 30+ years. It's crazy! If we learn something that will benefit us after each and every race, then we're heading in the right direction.
