Sunshine, rain and more sun made the track extremely slippery. Sunset is usually known for the very high grip surface. Not this week. The apprenticesearch.com car did more drifting than racing. Not exactly fast, but it sure was a hand full inside the car. All we did between winning at Kawartha and Sunset was wash the car and wax it. Not sure why we struggled so much all night long. We tried more big changes and started way back in 10th. A couple of cautions had us restarting on the slippery outside lane. At the end of 30 laps we made it up to 5th and put 6-8 car lengths on the rest of the field. We should have brought it back on the tow truck, not in 5th. Thanks to the crew for all the hard work. We will get it right for Mosport. Looking forward to our next win this Saturday for fan appreciation night. Come out and get your hero cards and candy. See you on the front straight during intermission.

It took a while, 75 laps of practice to be sure we had the right setup. Dave,Jason, Tom and Jim all did a great job wrenching on the car. We tried everything this week, including the kitchen sink. Shocks, springs, sway bar, brakes, wedge and tire pressures. It was a lot of work. Third in the heat race and finally a big win in the feature. Kawartha was the last remaining track that our team had not won a race. The pass around the outside of turn 1 was a little scary. I trusted the adjustments the crew made to the car and it all worked out. Another good points night and a thrilling race for the fans. Hard work and effort always pay off. I was not so lucky at the slots, but that's another story.

Sunny skies are in the forecast. We look forward to the trek up 35/115. After a couple of test sessions and long nights in the shop we are ready to go. 4th in points is a great start. Here's to moving up the standings. Racing starts at 6pm, see you there.
