June 30th

Well race fans it certainly has been a wet year. Many dates have been rained out so far this season. Not a good year to own a race track I must say. The weekend of June 18 & 19 was a painful weekend. Myself and a crew member decided to get some extra seat time so we towed to Grand Forks and were rained out Friday. We proceeded to venture to Greenbush Minnesota to race on Saturday and once again were rained out. This past weekend my brother Patrick participated in a car show with the Sprint Car and brought back a first place trophy! The car show was called " iLLconformity Summer Shocker 2010" with approx 200 cars I am told. The car show was in support of "Cancer Care Manitoba" so the Sprint Car was very fitting since the nose wing displays their logo. We would rather be racing but with all this rain we have been trying to give our sponsors as much exposure as possible and it is tough having a car sitting. Please see attachments for pictures of car show. More great news I received a phone call last night letting me know that our car and sponsors will be on the front page of this Thursdays program at Red River Co-op Speedway. Lets hope that the weather works in our favour! We are very excited about the upcoming races. We have made some huge gains with the handling of the car and are please to have a new sponsor. "Walls Rod Custom" has provided engine support. Brain Wall has one of the newest and most innovative chassis dynos in Canada. We can't wait to see his results. Thanks Brian :)
