Hello All! The race has been moved to October 1st! Enjoy your weekend and see you all then!!
The NADCAR group had another fun night of racing at Thunder Raceway! It was great to see a few new faces visit from the south! #7 Ron Patton and #20 Frank Phillips put on a show for the 1st heat race win! Patton made his way back around Phillips to grab the checker and #72 Treavor Jorgenson took the final transfer. The 2nd heat race win went to #11 Heather Henesey, she made her way past #5 Storm Phillips and #12 Pat Henesey for the win.
The main event track prep was unbelievable! 2 of the carbureted dinosaurs brought the field down to the green #12 and #20 (haha!). #11 brought out the only caution of the entire night with a snapped throttle cable. After the field bunched up again, the race was on! #12 jumped out to an early lead with the rest of the field right on his tail! #54 Charlie Iannacone started to get a feel for the racey track by moving quickly through the field on the low line. #5 Storm Phillips snuck up on #12 Henesey with only 4 left and drag raced down the front stretch to steal the lead. #54 Iannacone followed #5 Phillips to take the 2nd spot. #12 Henesey was able to get back around Iannacone for the 2nd spot after #54’s move on Storm for the lead lost too much momentum coming out of 4. #5 Storm Phillips parked it in victory lane! Way to go Storm!!!
Great run by all the drivers!! What a fun night!! See you all on the 27th of for the final race on the 2016 NADCAR schedule!
Race day is finally here, weather looks great!!
Get those cars ready and we will see who grabs the checkered flag tonight!
The racing action was typical NADCAR style, two and three wide around the entire track! #4 Gary Bowman and #10 Helen Henesey put on a show for the fans in the heat race with #10 grabbing the checkered flag. #23 Jason Craner and #4 Gary Bowman brought the field to the start of the main event. Bowman checked out on the field early on, with almost a half track lead on the 2nd place car. Coming out of 4 Bowman hit a slick spot and looped it, bringing out the yellow flag.
#12 Pat Henesey saw his opportunity at a victory and wasn’t going to give it away! #11 raced him on the low line side by side for the remaining 5 laps, #12 Pat Henesey had the preferred line and didn’t miss a mark.
Next race, Memorial Weekend Shoot out! 2 nights of racing! NADCAR rules will apply for the weekend. Coconino Motors has jumped on as a sponsor, if anyone else wants to “up the ante”, let me know!!
