Good morning all!
Quick write-up from last week for those who haven't already seen.... we won a race!
Double features from the rain out made for a busy night for us, and we managed to keep the car in one piece for both races. First feature we finished 12th after starting outside pole and falling back immediately, and clawed our way back up to salvage a finish. The second half of the night was entirely different, with new tires and some setup changes, we ran away with the heat and ran away with the feature!
Here's the post from Facebook from the driver:
Now that I’ve had time to process it and I’m working on the car today….
What an absolutely unreal feeling again. We double featured on Friday after getting postponed twice, and brought what we thought was a good car for the night. Through practice and the first feature, ol’ Marie was a MISERABLE race car, but we salvaged a 10th place on the first feature.
After some small adjustments, new tires, and a lot of yelling and screaming, we went out for the heat race on the pole and ran away with it. Come feature time, we were fortunate to start on the pole again and ran away again green to checkers (until the last 5 laps where we fought to get around a lapped car and almost threw it away)
