Our Memorial Day weekend didn’t get off to the best start; actually it was probably the worst start possible for our weekend of racing. During pace laps before Friday night’s feature, the engine expired which obviously ended our night and sent us into a scramble on Saturday morning to replace it.

After a successful opening to the season last Saturday night at Thunderhill Raceway, it was time to kick off the season at our hometown track of Luxemburg Speedway this past Friday.

We had the very fortunate draw to start on the outside of the front row for the night’s feature. I ran strong on the outside groove for the opening laps of the race, chasing polesitter Troy DeGrave and running side by side with Lucas Lamberies. After a caution, we remained running…

After getting in a few laps the prior week at Thunderhill Raceway, we were all set to start our 2015 campaign at the track where we captured the 2014 championship.

A total of 13 sportmods signed in for opening night. With the draw/redraw format in effect, we tried our luck at pulling a number towards the front of the field.

Our heat race draw put us in the 4th starting spot on the grid. I ran in the 4th spot for the…
