First week of September

Last race weekend was supposed to be a great weekend.  We had it in our heads to better our previous finish of second place and take home a first place.  This didn’t turn out as planned, on the first practice session my motor blew up!! Not a good thing.  This very quickly ended our weekend and we raced home that Friday night (from Vegas) to asses the damages.  As it turns out the previous motor builder, unknown to us, used cheap parts for valve keepers and one of them failed.  This failure resulted in us having a motor as a “big paper weight” now 😦

There is a big double header coming up this weekend though and we are in the process of trying to put a new motor together.  Hopefully we can overcome this big obsticle and make it to the race this weekend and get our first place 🙂
