July 30 Feature win!

JULY 30  281 Speedway
On Landries B-day sat nite her daddy won his first A feature of the year. And as usual I scored plenty of style points after I took the checkers I drifted too high in turns 1 and 2 and slammed the rearend in the wall. The crowd went wild, so after the pictures were taken I finished tearing the rear spoiler off and gave it to a kid in the stands.
July 29 Cowtown speedway
Started 6 th in the heat and was passing for 2nd when I got crossed up with  the car above, spun and cut rear tire.
Starting the 20 lap feature in the rear of a 26 car field. I passed several cars on each of the restarts after cautions and with 6 laps to go have moved from 26th to 7th as I got greedy running the highline a little too hard and fell over the top of turns 3 and 4. Missed opportunity for a top 5 and the hard charger award! Finished 15th.

Lawton Speedway Sat July 2
Started last in heat race and moved up to 2nd but was black flagged for rough driving. This means I had to start at the rear of the 10 lap B feature to qualify for the A, they took top 4 out of the 12 car field. I started 12th and finished 2nd to give me an 18th spot starting position for the A feature. With 5 laps to go I had moved up into the top 5 when a lap car in front of me spun as we were going thru turns 1 and 2, I couldnt miss him! Knocked right front 14th place finish, another top 5 lost with bad luck in the closing laps.
