No luck at the "Gambler's Classic"
As you know, indoor racing takes a lot of luck. Over 80 TQ midgets were entered for the "Gambler's Classic" race in Atlantic City, NJ. Only 24 cars and drivers started the final race. On Thursday, we ran a few rounds of practice which went very solid. Friday, we had a motor issue in qualifying which put us in 40th spot out of 83 cars. We charged from 40th spot to 26th, missing the transfer to the final race by 2 spots. On Saturday, we were in just about the same boat. Saturday's events were based off of qualifying on Friday which obviously hurt us. We started 9th in our heat race and were collected in a first lap crash that ended our weekend. No, it didn't go how we wanted it to, but we were able to take a lot away from a fews days like that. I have a lot to be thanful for, starting with the car owner, Ken Hentrich. This is the 2nd year straight that he has given me the opportunity to travel to the East coast and drive his car. His family and friends that make up the crew are great people and I appreciate all of their help.
We will be releasing the rest of our 2015 schedule within the next few weeks! Be sure to check back.
