Justin’s first time at LES with a 3rd place Semi-Pro Division finish May 26, 2012

Great weekend of racing over the Memorial Day holiday. Traveled to Lake Erie Speedway in PA for their opening night. There were a total of 36 Legend cars and over 5800 people in attendance to watch the feature races. The track split the Legend cars into two divisions: Semi-Pro / Young Lions and Pro / Masters. There were 20 cars in the Semi-Pro / Young Lions division. Justin started the feature race in the 9th position. By the 4th lap of the feature race, Justin had moved up to 5th. After lap 5, the top 5 cars pulled away from the rest of the field. The race stayed green and Justin maintained the 5th position for the remainder of the race; finishing 3rd in the Semi-Pro Division.

On Sunday, we traveled over to Mountain Speedway in Drums, PA. There were 17 Legend cars. With this being Justin’s first time at the track, he had to start last for the heat race and for the feature race. This was an extremely rough short track and we were glad to leave there with a car in one piece. After 20 laps, Justin was able to make it up through to the 10th position; finishing 4th in the Semi-Pro Division.

It was great to be able to get back to the tracks after a couple weeks off. A huge thank you goes out to Dan Snyder for making the trip from NC to help us over the weekend.
