Best finish, worst drivePosted: Updated:
Raced the 360 Sprint Car in Tucson for the first time last Saturday night. Boy, was it a tough run. I was new to the track and it turned into a very dry, ice slick like surface and quite frankly, I just didn't know how to drive on that surface. I knew there would be lots of crashes which there were and I played it safe and didn't risk wrecking the car. As a result, I finished 11th which was my best sprint car finish.
Saturday, June 16th we're back at Manzanita Speedway at 35th ave. & Broadway to run in the Hank Arnold Memorial. Arnold was a popular driver who was killed in a sprint car accident 4 years ago. It should be a great night as the Sprint Cars are on the larger, faster 1/2 mile track with the Midgets on the smaller track. I haven't raced on the half mile for a couple of years, so I'm a bit nervous already.
Thanks again to my great sponsors who make it possible for me to race, Checker Auto Parts, Discount Tires, Burns Pest Elimination, Parker Stores, Desert Valley Auto Parts, Arizona color.com, Unique Heavy Towing, Oakley, Acme Powerwash.com and Arizona Race Mart.
