Results April 12th 2014 Grandview Speedway – Heat 2nd Feature 9th

A new year, a few new things, and a new hope and into the first heat race of the night we went. I started in the 4th spot and quickly jumped into third on the first lap adjusting to the new feel of things. After clicking off a few more laps I took over the 2nd place position and by the end was challenging for the lead only to fall a car length short. 

After the heat race I felt pretty good as if things had all come together finally.


My heat performance would set me 4th in the feature line up and I had my hands full with a tight car to start off and fell back to the 6th position by the time the first caution came out. 

On the first restart the car in front of me had an issue and stalled out right in front of me and we tangled up a bit as the entire field when by us. I assumed the yellow would come out as we both tapped the wall but that never happened and back to the throttle I went. 

I had some serious ground to make up to catch the tail end of the field but nonetheless I was back in it. 

I had made some adjustments prior to the restart and they worked because within a few laps I was making my way through the field, a bit of a new situation for me as usually I am trying to hang on to a top spot.

Things were just working finally, each lap I kept gaining a position or two and ended up the night in 9th place. You would think we won a race in the pits afterwards because it felt pretty dam good to come back like that. 

I know we have something this year; we only touched the surface of what we can accomplish. For now, like always, its one small step at a time.
