Fast Times at Ridgemont....I mean Manzanita!

Posted: Updated:

It was a hot night in many aspects at Manzanita Speedway Saturday night for the last Sprint Car race of June. I finally got after it and raced to a 3rd place in the heat race. It gave me a lot of confidence since I beat some of the top drivers. However, it only really counts in the Main race and I started in a good spot in 11th. I felt I could drive to a top ten finish for the first time...but my gauge showed my engine was running extremely hot so I pulled off the track a few laps before the checkered flag. Turns out it was a bad gauge, which I'm happy about because the engine is ok!

The sprint cars turn up the heat Tuesday night for a patriotic night of racing Tuesday July 3rd at Manzanita Speedway. A 50-lap race along with fireworks, should be a great time. And race fans, it really isn't that bad, once the sun goes down!
