This Monday we had a great practice and really got the car turning in the center and were able to run the right line to pickup our times. On Tuesday we qualified 19th and I think these were the closest times in the Pro division yet. I ran the heat race and finished third. The car was a little tight so the team worked on it and made some changes. In the race, the car felt awesome but I was running 10th at one point.
Track position was so important with everyone close. With 5 laps to go everyone checked up and someone got into the back of me and broke my bumper. I had to pit for a new bumper and came out with three to go and took checkered flag.
It was a good night; the car was fun to drive and everyone at U.S. Legends and Charlotte Motor Speedway always show my family and I a good time. Great family fun!! I got in bed around 1:30 a.m. and was back at it on Wednesday morning, leaving the house around 6 for ACE Speedway with my new crew chief Randy Renfrow and the super late model. We ran about 10 sessions and I will say I learned more in this day about changes to the car. The track was hot but the car still had a ton of forward bite. I feel that we the team and I are going for our best finish !!!
