Some season Highlights:
5th Place at Hickory Speedway – Started out our season in North Carolina with the twin Easter Bunny 100 Event at Hickory. This trip would not have been possible without the support of our partner for this event, New England Mechanical. Fun track, finished P5 in the second race.
Making the Show at the Oxford 250– What an experience we had! It was a roller coaster, glad we able to hold on for the ride. We found some decent speed during practices. After qualifying runs, we started in the 5th spot in the 5th Heat Race. A stuck bleeder resulted in a P6 finish, meaning we had to run the consi. Contact during the consi race caused damage that slowed us enough to miss the cut. We were given a half provisional to start the race, and ultimately finished 28th. Thank You to New England Mechanical, SignWorks New England, Epsom Tool Rental, Web Smart Advisors, and Bedford Barbershop.
Seekonk Speedway P4- Thanks to Parker Professional Driving School for partnering with our team for this race. It felt great to get back to our old stomping grounds at Seekonk Speedway. We got involved in a lap seven crash that put us a lap down. Got a lucky dog around halfway and drove it back for a 4th place finish.
3rd at Thunder Road– This was our first time competing at this track and the first podium finish for our team. We unloaded a solid car to start us P5 in the feature. There was only one caution in this race, we finished P3. Thanks to SignWorks New England for their support at Thunder Road.
