04/23/12Rough Night at 141 Speedway for Budzo Racing
This past Saturday, we towed back to 141 Speedway for their 2nd night of racing for the 2012 season. The show was a special for the Bumper to Bumper IRA outlaw sprint car series, and also included street stocks and sport 4s on the card.
Things didn’t last very long or end very well at all for us, as we only made it 1 lap around the speedway before the leader, Tyler Hackett, spun in front of me and the entire field. I was left with no place to go, and crashed the right front of my car into his driver side, then was clobbered in the left rear of the car.
The damage we sustained was far too much to continue for the heat race or for the rest of the night. The entire right side of the body was destroyed, and we also suffered a bent and cracked tail section, along with a bent front frame to add insult to injury.
We spent all Sunday morning and afternoon stripping the body and bending the welding the car back to where everything is supposed to be. Our plan now is to be back out on Friday for practice at Luxemburg Speedway, and possibly be back in action on Saturday at 141 Speedway.
