POSTED 4/30/12 (race nights 4/27-28):
This weekend the Lang14 and Palm Harbor Homes crew headed out to Waco and Killeen, Texas to race.
Friday night we arrived at Heart of Texas Speedway around 4pm. It was absolutely beautiful racing weather. Jessica drew
us #10 which started us in the fourth heat race outside poll. We tried really hard to catch the leader and put on an
awesome race but ended up finishing 2nd. Started 3rd in the A. When the race started I spun the car out and slid to the top
of the track, my car was way too tight. Luckily there was a caution to where we could make some major chances and drove
from 20th to 6th.
Saturday night we raced at Texas Thunder Speedway. My mom drew me #14 and that started us fifth in the 2nd heat. The
track was hit and miss with one groove, I finished 4th in the heat. Made the A and started 11th. For the A the track was
rough in 1 and 2, but slick in 3 and 4. Took the green flag went in to turn 3 and spun out which put me at the back of the
pack. On the restart we were able to find our line and work our way through the field finishing 4th. Over all a great
weekend! I would like to thank all my sponsors,my fans, my Mom, Dad, Jessica, Doug, Becky, Maury, Heidi, Sid, and Mark.
