It was not a good weekend for Jeremy and crew. It started out good, but ended badly both nights. Jacksonville started out with drawing the 49 pill and starting last in the heat. Jeremy worked his way up to 5th and earned enough passing points to start 9th in the feature. Right before the green flag flew the RR tire got a hole in it and coming out of turn 4 Jeremy got ran over and started flipping which ended up landing on the front stretch inside wall and bending the frame. Jeremy and crew worked hard all day saturday to try to get the racecar raceable for Saturday night at Macon speedway and did just that. They got to Macon and drew the 49 pill once again. Jeremy started last in the heat and came up to 3rd place, which put him the in the redraw. Jeremy drew the 3 and started 2nd row inside for the feature. He was running 4th when the car half spun and and fell back to 10th. Going for the checkered flag he got in in the side and got spun out going across the finish line which ended the night with an 11th place finish. Jeremy will start stripping the car in hopes he can fix the frame and be ready to go back into action with mowa starting at the end of August.
On what was a hot day in central IL, Jeremy once again drew the back row of a heat race on a one groove race track and moved up 1 spot. Track was laying rubber the 3rd heat race and was laying rubber on the first lap of the feature. Needless to say there wasn’t hardly any passing going on. Jeremy Started 15th and ended up 13th. We move on to Jacksonville, IL on Friday July 26th and Macon, IL on July 27th. Check out the results page for full results
We were ready to go racing at Fairbury, IL on Saturday. Drew 24 pill, finished drivers meeting and was told we had a small cell coming through but we will race. Well, that small cell turned into a gully washer and had flooding in the pits and standing water on the racetrack. Another night Mother Nature takes the win. We will be back in action Friday July 12th at Lincoln, IL.
The original plan was to go race the MOWA/All Star race at jacksonville speedway, when Mother Nature had other plans cancelling the event around 3:45pm. As we were sitting outside in the parking lot, we got a wild idea to just head south to Granite City IL and take the wings off and go non wing racing. Since we didn’t have our non wing axle and tires needed for non wing it was definitely a challenging night. Jeremy of course drew dead last in the heat and finished 7th. Had to start 9th in the bmain and finished 5th, was in the transfer spot and hit the inside tractor tire going for the white flag and couldn’t hardly steer the car. All in all, was a fun night just getting out and racing. We might not have had the results we wanted but was definitely a fun night. Thank you to all our sponsors and fans that support us week in and week out and to our great crew Ron Standridge and Jim Rapps for all the help. We will prepare for this saturdays MOWA event at Fairbury Speedway.
