We’ve decided to branch out of our ASCS circuit and compete with the Kansas NCRA series. We raced just one Saturday night and enjoyed the fact that these cities are closer to home. It also opened up the opportunity to get some seat time and run against a different group of drivers. Justin started his heat race outside pole and was doing good but had problems holding the third position due to issues with the helmet’s tear-offs and being off on the gearing. Justin ran the B, starting second row outside but again had problems with the tear offs which made him not be able to see. He finished 10th in the B which started him at very back of the pack for the A main against 22 cars.
Getting Justin ready...
It ended up being a crazy race due to rough mud and aggressive drivers. Within the first 5 laps there were several spinouts and a red-flag due to a big crash. This became the norm for the evening as about every three laps there were major wrecks which Justin avoided beautifully. As crazy cars took themselves out and Justin stayed cool, he climbed and finished 13th for the night.
This race taught him how to maneuver quickly thanks to insane pit drivers. He almost collided with the pace truck that was not watching when he was pushed onto the track. He also had trouble with his throttle getting stuck and while zipping back to the rig, he annoyed a guy on his atv who wanted to start a fight because he thought Justin should slow down his car that was out of control. Considering all the track mishaps, wrecks and issues we are thrilled with our finish and end results.
