FINISH
04/27/13
Algona
7th
Started 6th in our heat and finished 5th.  Started 14th in the A feature and fell back early.  
Avoided a few potential wrecks and finished 7th.  This '05 RBR car hasn't been raced since
2009, so it was a much needed test session.  The car was a little loose on entry and tight
from the center off the corner.  Was running with the 5th and 6th place car towards the end of
the feature.  Running the 350 carb motor is not the way to go in IMCA.

Rock Rapids
5th
Opening night at Rock Rapids didn't go so well. Started 2nd in the feature and finished 5th.
The track was tacky and very rough and the RBR chassis car didn't hand very well. Fought a
very tight race car. At the end of the night, the center section housing bolts were loose.

Algona
DNF
Took the Medieval Chassis to Algona with a new motor combo. It was the first night out with
this chassis and the 360 IMCA motor. We didn't have enough gear and we fought a loose
race car. Got caught up in a wreck just a few laps into the feature.  We learned a few things
that should help our opening night effort at Jackson.
05/31/13
Rock Rapids
7th
Started the feature in the 5th spot and was going for the lead when we were hit hard in the
LR. After changing the flat tire, the car didn't work as well. Finished 7th. The changes we
made after the heat race made the car much better. Looking forward to the USRA Iron Man
race next week Friday.

Rock Rapids
12th
Started the feature in the 8th spot and inadvertently spun the 00 car in turn 3 on the first lap.  
Got sent to the back and ended up hitting a tractor tire with the left front.
06/21/13
Rock Rapids
2nd
Started the feature in the 5th spot and was running the bottom.  With the help of a caution,
we were able to catch back up to the leader.  Ran side by side with the 36 car and eventually
gained the lead.  Stayed on the bottom and got passed by the 22 car with 2 laps to go.  If we
had the car dialed in, we could have won it.  Great stock car race!
06/20/13
Spencer
1st
Started 3rd in the heat and finished 3rd. Started 4th in the feature and passed the 98, 11,
and 32 car to go to Victory lane. Roger had that car hooked up well on the bottom of the dry
slick track. The rescaling of the car the night before paid off!  First win at Spencer.

Rock Rapids
2nd
Started the feature in the 5th spot and was running the bottom.  With the help of a caution,
we were able to catch back up to the leader.  Ran side by side with the 36 car and eventually
gained the lead.  Stayed on the bottom and got passed by the 22 car with 2 laps to go.  If we
had the car dialed in, we could have won it.
06/06/13
Sioux Center
3rd
Started 6th in the heat and finished 3rd. Started pole for the feature and finished 3rd. Car
was very inconsistent and ill handling. Looks like we have an issue with the power steering
pump.  First time on a 1/2 mile race track with the IMCA 360 motor.  Had the wrong gear in
the car.
06/27/13
Sioux Center
2nd
Started on the pole for the feature and fell back to 4th early.  Ended up finishing 2nd behind
the #11 of Jake Masters.  Car needed to be a little better on entry, but it worked pretty good
on the bottom.  We'll have to make some minor tweaks to it to get faster.
06/28/13
Rock Rapids
DNF
Started the feature 6th with a terrible handling race car.  It looks like we have a RF spring
collapsing.  Got caught up in a wreck when another car spun in front of us.  The right rear
frame is pushed in a little ways.  Will need to straighten it before the next race at Rocky on
the 12th.
06/29/13
Jackson
6th
First regular season race at Jackson.  Started 2nd in the heat and finished 2nd, getting
passed coming out of turn 4 going to the checkered.  Made am adjustment to fix the tight on
entry, but hurt the center and exit in the feature.  Had too much gear in the car as well.
07/03/13
Alta
15th
Started 19th and finished 15th.  Car was much faster late in the race.  Needed more gear
and looser car.
07/05/13
Jackson
DNF
The 17M of Bruns drove across the RF of the car on a restart giving us a flat RF and taking
out some suspension parts.  He just cut down on us on corner entry after restarting on the
outside lane.  Roger decided to lift rather than roll him after he drove over the RF.  Should
have finished 5th at the Dommick Bruns Memorial.
07/11/13
Spencer
DNF
Started 11th and hit the 14W after he spun or was spun in turn two.  The damage bent the
left front frame horn and took out a radiator protecting bar, the radiator, and fan.  The car will
be heading to the frame machine.  Probably won't race it again until Aug 1st at Spencer.
07/12/13
Rock Rapids
4th
Started 7th and could only get up to 4th as the race went green-white-checkered.  The car is
still too tight on entry.  Time to try a few more things to free it up.
07/19/13
Rock Rapids
7th
Started 4th and jumped the cushion early in the feature.  Ended up finishing 7th as the race
went caution free after that point.  Was running the same lap times as the top 3.
07/23/13
Rock Rapids
2nd
Started 2nd and finished 2nd.  Had some 2 and 3 wide racing for the lead with the 2 and 22.  
Check out the
video posted by the #2 car on Youtube.
07/26/13
Rock Rapids
6th
Started 4th and finished 6th.  One of the worst track conditions of the year at Rocky.  There
was a coffin sized crater in turn 2 that they marked with white chalk so the racers could avoid
it.
08/01/13
Spencer
10th
After having the bead lock ring sheered off by the #83 car on the drop of the green flag of the
heat race, we started 11th in the feature.  The car didn't work very well and we were stuck in
traffic.  Ended up finishing 10th.
08/02/13
Slayton
8th
With Rock Rapids being rained out, we headed to Slayton for the first time since 2001.  
Started 7th and finished 5th in the heat race.  Started 10th in the feature and was up to 6th
early.  Track was dry and was hard to pass.  Got stuck on the bottom on a restarted and lost
a number of spots.  Ended up finishing 8th with a bad handling car.  Time to scale it again.
08/09/13
Slayton
1st
Led every lap of the heat race and feature to win our 2nd IMCA stock feature of the year and
our first win at Slayton.  The changes made on the scales last week Saturday paid off well.  
The car was completely different than the previous week.
08/16/13
Slayton
7th
Was up to 4th when we restarted on the bottom and couldn't pass any cars.  The track
configuration in Slayton makes it very hard to pass.  Ended up 7th after getting hit from
behind and getting out of shape after checking up a little for the car in front of us.
08/23/13
Rock Rapids
3rd
Started on the pole of the feature and was running the bottom.  Car was just a little off and
was passed by the 45k and 32x.  The track was very fast in the heat and the track was pretty
good for the stock car feature.
08/30/13
Rock Rapids
4th
Ran our IMCA stock car at the USRA track.  Car worked pretty good, but could really notice
the lack of horsepower.
9/4-9/6
Boone
DNQ
Struggled all week getting traction on the dry track.  This was our first time at Boone with the
360 motor and that much gear.  Will need to make changes for next year.
09/21/13
Jefferson
6th
Finished 6th in our first ever appearance at the track. We are running a different setup under
the 2005 RBR and need to make some adjustments to it.

Spencer
12th
Drew the number 2 starting spot, but decided to take the Front Row Challenge. Started 10th
and passing for 7th early when we got a flat right front tire.  Car was working good early.
9/27/13
Fairmont
5th
In our first trip back since 2010, we finished 5th in the A feature. Was on the leaders bumper
early, but faded backwards. Made some adjustments to improve the car and are getting it
faster.
9/28/13
Jackson
2nd
Made some adjustments after starting on the pole of the heat and finished 4th. Started 3rd in
the A Feature of the Jackson Nationals and finished 2nd. Roger was all over the leader, but
fell back a little after the car started missing.
9/12/13
Spencer
12th
Got a flat on the drop of the flag for the heat race.  Started in the back of the feature and
couldn't move forward very well.
