Hello Race fans,
This weekend was a double header.
I was graciously asked to help drive this weekend for Steve and Sherry Land of Forney, Texas.
Steve competes in the Sprint Series of Texas .
Steve is a well known racer here in the D/FW Metroplex. He presently runs Competition Prouducts
in Dallas,Texas. (custom machining and fabricating work)
I was introduced to Steve at the first SST race at Cowtown Speedway eariler this season.
We have been communicating on a regurar basis talking about chassis set ups and getting to
know more about each other.
We got together Friday morning for the race at Boyd Speedway (northwest of Ft. Worth).
Steve showed we all about his car. So what is so special about Steve's car? He built it himself!
Our heat race was not too great. I was still adjusting to the car. I had the car a little loose. We
started last and did not transfer to the A main.
The B main was a lot better after we tightened up the car , but not enough, and did not transfer to
the A main.
All and all, it was a learning experience for me. We loaded the car up in one piece and that makes
for successful night. The Land's we happy, and that makes me happy.
On the way back home Steve asked me if I would like to drive again for them at the next race in
Waco on the 27th of May (Sunday). Hope to see you there. . .
Saturday May,12 - Cowtown Speedway
Mother nature showed up dumping rain before the races started.
That had no effect on the Cowtown staff.
With fans and racers lined up in the parking lot, the staff did a super job to get the pits and track
in good shape for a fast night of action with relatively little delay, considering the amount of rain.
Racing kicked off around 9pm.
We started off by drawing a 14 pill and that placed us in the first heat outside.
The track was going to be fast. I came to the track and had to do some changes to adjust to the
haevy surface. We finished second.
The A main race was going to be even faster. The Cowtown staff kept the surface smooth and rut
free. We started second row inside and finished fourth.
I would like to thank the Cowtown staff once again, as we were towed into our pit stall, and towed
back out when we left - as our truck was immobile from the mud!
Remember to cherish your mom this Mother's Day. I will always remember mine.
Hope to see you soon at the races,
