Posted 7/18/11, Race Nights 7/15 & 7/16:
Here is our weekend recap for the Palm Harbor Homes, Triple J Foundation, GSG, LenMar Racing Engines, Tony Rome's,
DSSM, L&S Motorsports racing team.
Friday Night we raced at RPM Speedway in Crandall TX. We started 4th in the heat race and finished 2nd. Then in the
feature we started 4th and finished 2nd. So we had a good night.
Saturday Night we raced at the Lawton Speedway in Lawton TX and when we pulled into the parking lot it was 110 and HOT!
We got to see the whole gang from the Palm Harbor Homes OKC location and got to meet and greet and get some good
We drew in #25 so we started 3rd in our heat race. At the drop of the green we we took off and coming off turn 2 the
outside car spun out in front of us and did a lot of damage to our car.
We looked the car over and though it would be safe to drive but things like the right rear shock were broken and Spike
was going to have his hands full.
On the restart we had now moved to the front row outside and Spike took off on the green flag and was leading coming off
turn 2. He held the lead until the last lap and ended up finishing 2nd.
We had made the feature race but had a ton of repairs to do on the car. We fixed all we could before we headed out for the
feature but the car was not perfect due to the damage.
We took the green flag from our 6th starting spot and just missed a big 8 car wreck in turn 2. Then on the restart we took
off again and Spike had to fight a poor handling car and fell back to 10th by mid race. Then as the Checkered flag fell Spike
was able to get back up to 8th.
Over all it was not the night we hoped for but that's racing. We did have fun and it was great to meet our new PHH friends
from OKC and we look forward to seeing them again.
This up coming weekend we will be at Boyd TX on Friday then Abilene on Saturday.
As always thank you for all your support and we hope to see you this weekend.
Steve, Mary, Jessica & Spike.
