RACE REPORT- March 2017 

WORCS Round 4 and 5, Lake Havasu, AZ– All I have to say is WOHOO!! I placed 1st in Round 4 and 2nd in Round 5, it was awesome! I had a lot of hard competition this weekend and with a double header I knew I had to drive smart. Round 4, I was 3rd off the line and had to make up some time but keep my car together for the next 35 minutes. I had some gnarly battles with my buddies on a super rough track in hot weather and lots of lap traffic, conditions were prime.

I started picking off cars and catching them on the tables and jumps as I noticed everyone else would check up on them. Before you knew it, I was rubbing bumpers with my buddy and hitting our rev limiters on our cars. I look over, his car starts spitting out white smoke and I make the pass and pulled the number 1 spot for the day. I managed to get rid of the last race jitters and felt confident again, it felt great. I couldn’t wait to get back in my car the next morning. We finished the race, took a dip in the lake with my friends and came back to the track to start prepping my car for the morning’s race at 8:30.

Morning rolled around, I had to be on the line by 7:50am, and noticed we were missing (3) cars from yesterday. Unfortunately, Havasu was not as good to them as it was to me. I took the second position on the start and that’s where I stayed the ENTIRE race. Between lap traffic and wrecks I just couldn’t make the pass. I was moving, had the fastest lap in my class for the entire weekend.  #badblood27 was pulling him in spots that I knew I could make up time, but my buddy drove a solid race. As for me, my car ran great, we didn’t have any breaks on a double header weekend and getting a 1st and 2nd place finish isn’t too much to complain about. Now on to Vegas baby!!
