Had to run the B after a bad heat.  Won the B-Feature and started 17th in the

to 6th before half-way.  Our night ended when the 66 car hit a big white tire
and we hit the 66 causing the radiator cap to come off.  Should have finished
top 4.

Marshalltown
11th
Started 24th and was pretty quick once we moved up a lane.  We were
running where no one else was able to.  If we could have moved up quicker,
we would have had a few more spots.  Good run.

Had a decent run in the heat and started third in the feature.  Fell back to sixth
on the start.  A few laps into the race, a car in front of us checked up quickly
and hit him hard in the rear bumper sending us off the track.  Our night ended
as the car slide up to the wall and the right side tires climbed the wall.

05/20/06
Jackson
DNF
Was running 2nd when the leader spun in front of us and we rode over his

sideways and we couldn't avoid hitting him with the right front.  That ended
our night.  Had a top 4 car.
05/05/06

axle right after the heat race.
4/08//06
Harlan
9th
Was taken out in the heat race.  Started 16th and survived some spinning
cars.  We have a problem with the rear end breaking loose from middle of the
corner and out whenever the steering is turned to the left.  Once we get that
fixed, we should have some good finishes.
4/01/06
Harlan
6th
Started pole.  Need to make a small adjustment to fix the loose on exit
problem.  Was 3 tenths quicker per lap when the car was not loose on exit.
3/25/06
Harlan
16th
Our first time at Harlan.  Led most of the heat, but finished 2nd.  Car was
loose from mid corner through exit.  Made some adjustments for the A and
the car was much better in the middle of the corner, but still loose off.  Was
up to 8th early, but lost numerous spots on three occasions when we slowed
to miss spinning cars that did not cause yellow flags.  Had a top 7 car.
