Big Win At The Beach
It may not be Daytona, but a win at Sauble Beach is a really tough thing to accomplish. In our series history, only 3 drivers have won feature events at the 1/4 mile oval. What a crazy night of weather, slight rain, fog and a cool mist that left you seeing your breath. After a quick practice to test the spare motor, and new tire set, we were confident in the set up on the apprenticesearch.com car. We won the first heat race and really needed to back it up in the feature. We are behind in points and wanted a solid night to get us back into the top 5. The feature was very tough, the track was slippery and the other drivers were quick. We did our best to get out front early and stayed there. We won the shortened 25 lap feature by 2 car lengths. That finish was good enough to move us back up the points into 4th place. Another good showing and we will crack the top 3. Thanks to our welder Scott for helping us repair a few issues. Those late nights in the shop seem to have paid off. Up next is the super high banking of Varney June 25.
