Oakshade Raceway Win-Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 12:02 pm

Aug 1st-Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon OH), (ALMS) Sunoco America Late Model Series event. 37 cars were in attendance. I drew a number seven and was going to start on the front row of the heat but an unfortunate change of events occurred. In hotlaps I started losing power in my motor and it started to smoke. I shut it off and tried starting it again but it was locked up. Not a good way to start off the night when you’re leading the ALMS point standings. There was no time to change motors and no time to drive home to get the backup car. My only decision was to find someone to let me drive their car and try to salvage a few points. I was really disappointed and couldn’t find anyone to let me drive their car, but then thankfully Bryan Koebbe who drives the number 33 Rocket Chassis decided to set aside for the night and let me pilot his racecar. I can’t thank Bryan enough, for the circumstances he gave me the best situation I could be in. His racecar was similar to mine and all I had to do was get comfortable in the seat. Let’s just say it didn’t take long. I had to start at the tail of the second heat race since I had to change cars. With a ten lap caution free heat race I was able to get comfortable and get this…we won the heat race! It was almost too good to be true already, one minute I felt like my season was going to be playing catch-up with the ALMS points to now I had a chance to extend my points lead. I redrew a number four starting position for the feature. I knew if I was patience and drove smart there was no reason we couldn’t pull off a top five finish. And we did one better than that…I took the lead half way through the race and won my second ALMS feature event! Man how things can change fast. I feel everything happens for a reason and this was a very special night! I want to give a big special thank you to Bryan Koebbe for letting me drive his racecar! Next week we go for three in a row at the shade.
