Strong Wrap-Up in May

5/29/2009

Kyle's month of may started slow but finished strong. Tri City on 5-1-09 was a rain out. On 5-7 Kyle raced at OKC Fairgrounds track for the first time. He took the lead in his heat race at the end of lap 1 and pulled to a half straight away lead by lap 4 when a caution flew. On the re-start the engine stumbled and he was passed by 2 cars and finished 3rd. In the B we had the stumbling issues still and pulled off the track. The next night at Devils Bowl Kyle flew to a 2nd place B Main finish. Putting him 18th in the A. He charged into the top 10 before the halfway point when his engine stumbling problem started in again hurting him on re-starts but he still maintened the 11th spot until running out of fuel with 2 laps to go.

We have had this fuel delivery/stumbling issue off and on all season. We have pulled the motor and fuel system and are having it checked over. Meanwhile we have installed our backup engine for the next few weeks.

With our back-up engine in Kyle went to Lake Ozark speedway on 5-23-09. In the heat race Kyle charged from 8th to finish 2nd and lining up 6th for the A main he finished a strong 3rd. The next night at the WOW race at California Kyle started 8th again in the heat and finished 5th. In the A Main Kyle charged from a 15th place starting position to a solid 5th place finish which could have been even higher had his brakes not gone out near the end of the race. Hopefully Kyle can continue this momentum into the upcoming races.
