Racing season has finally begun. The first Thursday test and tune of the season went well. I was able to get into the low 14 seconds per lap. The faster we got the car going the more a slight vibration arose with the fan on my NASCAR Whelen Koehlke/GreenPro Late Model. We decided to just load up and fix it back at Motorcar Autobody shop I was able to get close to the time I wanted so I felt pretty good.
Opening day, Friday, finally came! I didn’t think it would ever get here. It’s like waiting for Christmas. The weather was perfect. First practice went well. My second test session, I was just a few hundredths off the track record. Wow, what a great crew! I missed my marks and picked up a slight push so I qualified 5th. The heat race went okay but I would have liked to have done better. I learned from my mistakes. Gary won his heat race.
I ended up starting in 3rd in the feature race. I held off the outside pole and was running a strong second for most of the race and then there was a caution. The restart went well except my car didn’t have enough power in the straight a ways. It was also getting tighter as the race went on. I finished third with not a scratch on the Koehlke Green Pro Landscaping. The crew and I are very pleased with our first race of the season and looking forward to this coming week. I’ll be racing at Kil-Kare and Columbus Motor Speedway.
I started my Rebel 105.9 radio spot on Tuesday afternoons at 2:45 pm. I also did an interview with 90.3 the One on Thursday. I have a major magazine interview coming up as well. I will keep you posted in which month it will be published. The meeting went well with Sheri Oaks and Veronica. I hope to hear back from some other partners soon. Please try to follow me on twitter and facebook because it the only way business know you following me.
Thanks Sloan and the crew
