The early morning rain moved through the area pretty quickly and was done well before the weather forecasters said it would which was great news for all of us racers as what could have been a rainout turned into a beautiful 80 degree day. Alright!
We traveled west to Paradise Speedway in Geneva for the final point’s race for the Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour. Our championships were already decided and we celebrated their accomplishments on the front stretch as well as our feature winners. You can listen to the champs as well as all the other winners on the night on the Audio Page today.
Okay sure, yes, I have to mention it because I am a dad, Allie did very well winning her first heat race and finishing a career best second place in the feature after leading the first lap from the pole. Nostalgia division champion Scott Gauthier lined up on her outside after a lap one caution and pulled around her on the drop of the green and pulled away for a convincing win.
Allie raced hard to hold on to second spot and finished in that position after pulling away a bit at the end. We did all but one of the sixteen races and Allie finished third in the points in her division. The season could not have gone any better and we have car owners Derrick Flynn, Pete Stapper, everyone on the DMNT including al the great tracks that welcomed us into their homes and some of you have helped us behind the scenes. Thank you so much.
Paradise as always is consistently one of the smoothest tracks around. Extremely well prepared and from what everyone I talked to said, fun and challenging to drive. I’ve always loved coming to this place as you see a nice mix of kids, teens and adults racing darned near everything else that you probably don’t see at your local track. If you’ve never checked it out you owe it to yourself to bring your kids, go in the pits (It’s on $15) and have some fun.
That will wrap things up for me as I’ll be laying low today, watching football and firing up the studio here and there as the day goes by. I’ve been doing a lot of suggestions lately so be sure to email me yours at email@example.com or just hit me up on Facebook. Enjoy your Sunday and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for more from the sport we all love so much!
