#12 Pat Henesey grabs the Win! 

The excitement was in the air, Thunder Raceways opening race was a success all around! The improvements and clean up of the facility definitely show! 

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!!
