Lake Erie Speedway — After a disappointing Round 3 down in Charlotte, we headed up to Lake Erie Speedway on Saturday, 6/30 for the Driver/Sponsor Appreciation Night. Justin felt very good about the car after the one and only practice run. Justin started 2nd in the 3rd heat and quickly took the lead coming out of turn 2 winning his second Heat Race at Lake Erie Speedway.
Before the feature races started, the Speedway lined up all the drivers and their cars for the autograph session. This was a great experience being able to talk with the fans while letting them see the Legend car. The kids had the best time sitting inside the car.
The Legend cars were the last feature race of the night. The #99 car started 6th after the invert. Justin had a strong start and quickly the #39, #62 and #99 were out front with a good lead on the rest of the field. After the second caution flag of the race, Justin was running third and a car deliberately pulled down in front of him entering turn 1. Justin had nowhere to go and they hit causing both cars to spin and a third car then hit into both of them ending Justin’s night. It is an extreme challenge for our #99 team when you do not have the finishes to show for these past races. We will keep racing as much as we can and I am confident Justin will be in victory lane soon.
