    Results April 12th 2014 Grandview Speedway – Heat 2nd Feature 9th

    A new year, a few new things, and a new hope and into the first heat race of the night we went. I started in the 4th spot and quickly jumped into third on the first lap adjusting to the new feel of things. After clicking off a few more laps I took over the 2nd place position and by the end was challenging for the lead only to fall a car length short. 

    After the heat race I felt pretty good as if things had all come together finally.


    My heat performance would set me 4th in the feature line up and I had my hands full with a tight car to start off and fell back to the 6th position by the time the first caution came out. 

    On the first restart the car in front of me had an issue and stalled out right in front of me and we tangled up a bit as the entire field when by us. I assumed the yellow would come out as we both tapped the wall but that never happened and back to the throttle I went. 

    I had some serious ground to make up to catch the tail end of the field but nonetheless I was back in it. 

    I had made some adjustments prior to the restart and they worked because within a few laps I was making my way through the field, a bit of a new situation for me as usually I am trying to hang on to a top spot.

    Things were just working finally, each lap I kept gaining a position or two and ended up the night in 9th place. You would think we won a race in the pits afterwards because it felt pretty dam good to come back like that. 

    I know we have something this year; we only touched the surface of what we can accomplish. For now, like always, its one small step at a time.

    Results: Season Opener April 5th 2014 Heat 7th Feature 15th

    Well considering I pretty much conceded that I would miss opening day, the fact that we were there was good enough for me. 

    When we got to the track we were still finishing up the car, down to the last couple of buttons and jam nuts. 

    I knew I wasn't to dialed in but wanted to shake the car down and very happy that we did make it to the track because we found an issue with the carburetor. We tried to sort that out before the feature and did get it better but it still wasn't right.

    Also add to the fact the big ditch in turn 3 I had no plans of going hard and was pretty much ready to take a few laps and pull off, but as usual nothing goes at planned. Before I made it to the start line when the green dropped I was into a spinning car and jacked up from behind. Not quite what I had in mind for opening day.

    No real damage to the car but the body was a little torn up so with the body christened I figured no time like the present and finished up the race. 

    All off season I tried to do everything possible to be ready well in advance but that was not in the cards this year and we were pretty much behind the 8 ball till today. I would look at this race pretty much like a practice session and looking forward to the next few weeks and see how well we can get our car dialed in. So far the little bit I felt with things, It should be a great season.
