Western Springs Finale

This weekend we are back at Western Springs Speedway for the season finale, and the news has been released that the Springs will be able to continue for one more season which is great news!  The team have had a few meetings off recently as Ricky had some health issues, so the goal of the night was to give the midget a good test run after its rebuild, and to get Ricky some good seat time.

In Our heat runs we missed the setup and didn't have the pull out of the turns, but still bought home a 4th and a 10th which wasn't enough to qualify straight through to the feature and we would need to finish in the top 4 of the semi-main to qualify.  A 2nd place put us through to the feature where we would be starting down the field in 18th.  Never one to give up, Ricky have progressed up to 14th before the fuel lines came loose and dropped onto the brake rotor cutting the hoses in half very quickly!  Luckily, we didn't catch fire however this did mean the end of our race.  While this wasn't how we wanted to end our night, we did achieve both of our goals for the night which means we are still leaving the track a very happy team!
