Started 3rd in the heat and had the lead until the caution came out. Ended up
finishing 3rd. Started 5th in the feature and fell back a spot during the first
couple of laps. Started moving forward and was up to 3rd when the brakes
faded and the car would no longer turn.
Started 15th in the A feature. Car worked pretty good, but had a hard time
passing on the tacky track. Was running the same lap times as the 3rd place
finisher. Needed more gear to pass cars on the bottom side.
Started 11th and struggled on a dusty, rough race track.
Started 5th in the heat and finished 5th. Car worked pretty good, but couldn't
pass the 3rd and 4th place cars as they were racing two wide. Started 14th in
the feature and spun out to avoid a spinning car on the first lap. Restarted in
the back and got some RF damage early in the feature. Tough start to the
Started 6th in the heat and got moved up out of the groove on the first lap. Fell
back to 7th or 8th. Was all over the 5th place car, but couldn't pass him.
Ended up getting the RF run over in the feature bend some suspension parts.
The new shock package looks like it has a lot of potential.
Started 2nd in the heat and fell to 4th on the start after contact. Ran well in the
heat race and finished 2nd. Started 4th in the feature. Had another bad start,
but got up to 3rd quickly. Was on the 2nd place cars bumper for a portion of
the race, bad faded late. Finished 4th with some minor adjustments needed to
Started 16th in the feature and was slowly moving forward. Restarted 9th on an
early caution when the car behind us tried to drive through the left front of our
car. Wrecked a wheel, tire, spindle and other front suspension parts.
Had a pretty good car in the heat, but hit a rut and lost a spot while working on
passing the leader. In the feature, a rut caused the right rear bead lock rings
to bend giving us a flat tire. Hopefully the track will be smoother next week.
The A feature was ran on 06-06-14 because of rain. Started on the pole and
lost the lead due to a spun car going back on the track. Fell a few spots on the
very rough race track.
The track continues to be very rough. They graded part way through the 1st
stock car heat race after 2 cars rolled. Started on the outside pole of the
feature and finished 2nd. Got passed running the high side trying to stay out of
the large ruts. Happy to not have a wrecked race car.
Made a shock change after finishing 6th in the heat race. The car was loose
on entry and the center of the corner, had good drive off, but was very
inconsistent. We'll need to make some changes to get the car better with this
Started 11th and didn't make up very much ground. Car seems to be a little
inconsistent. Time to make some big changes.
Started 4th and finished 3rd in the heat. The car was a little tight, so we made
some changes. Started 6th in the feature and the car was very good on entry,
but was picking and the left front and was too tight on exit.
Broke the RF rotor in the heat race at Slayton. Not enough parts on hand to fix
it. Car was working really good and had good lead in just a few laps of the heat..
Started 2nd in the heat race and finished 1st. Car was too tight on the tacky
track. Started on the pole of the feature and over adjusted the car. Striggled
running the cushion. Finished 3rd.
Started up front in the feature and ran there for a few laps. Feel back after a
restart and ended up not finishing. Should have undone some of the changes
we made after the rain came through.
Made a few changes from last night in Algona. Car was better but it still doesn't
have enough speed in it. Might be time to change motors as this one has a lot
of races on it.
After starting the night over 45 minutes late because they flooded the track
during track prep, we race on a crappy race track all night. Race went green
white checkered on a very fast race track. Time to give this tired motor a break.
After two weeks of time to fix the rough track conditions, the track got rough
again. Had to grade the track during intermission. Choose not to wreck more
equipment of a rough race track and did not finish the feature. This was our
last night of racing at Slayton this season.
Started 6th and finished 3rd in the heat race. Started 8th and finished 7th in
the feature. Track was wet and a one-laner on the topside. Tried to pass cars
on the bottom, but couldn't make it work.
Started 8th and finished 3rd in the feature. The preferred line was on the
top-side and we passed a couple of cars. Car worked pretty good, but still has
room for improvement.
Started 3rd and finished 7th. The track was really dry and we struggled with
rear grip on corner entry which caused us to fall back a number of spots. Made
some changes to the rear of the car for next.
Started 11th and finished 3rd. Made some changes to the car from the
previous week that made the car better. Still looking for some more speed.
Started 3rd and was running 4th when we hit a rut on a restart with 5 to go and
slid off the back stretch. Lost a lot of spots on that restart. Should have
finished much better than 10th.
Started 11th and finished 6th in the $1,000 special. Finally based a few cars
when we restarted in the outside lane late in the feature. The topside was too
fast. Appreciate the effort the track made to the races in after an inch of rain in
Car shut off just a couple of laps into the A feature. Not sure what caused it.
Car started back up after sitting in the pit area for a number of minutes.
Tonight was being used as test session for the IMCA Super Nationals.
Got the RF run over in the heat race. Should have made one of tonights A
Feature. Started 12th in the B and moved forward.
Had a bad heat race. The car killed while trying to avoid a small pile up of cars
in the bottom of 1 & 2.
Car shutoff running 3rd in the feature. Not sure what the cause was. Car
started a few minutes later,
Hit the another car when the 6L was rolled in turn 3. Had nowhere to go.
Everyone was on top or each other on the fast tacky track. Some of the drivers
don't have enough talent out there run that close to each other.
Ran over a big terragator tire on a restart and wrecked a bunch of suspension
parts. Was running 4th earlier after starting 10th.
Car did not handle very well on the dry track. Our brutally tough season has
come to an end. Better luck next in 2015.
