We had a great showing at the Illinois Nationals race last weekend. Congratulations to Paul Kruegar on 1st place finishes in the FXT class on both days. Especially Saturday night overcoming mechanical problems to take the win. Also a great showing by Justin Altemeier finishing up towards the front both days. In FXS James Clark did great with a second on Sunday and a third on Saturday while Marty Kunkle did well with a second on Saturday and a third on Sunday. Our GP racers ran strong both days with Brandon Patava taking home the win on Saturday , with Derik See taking third and Mike De Bruin in 5th. On Sunday Derik See represented us well with a 5th place finish ,but we had numerous racers up front challenging for the lead with Michael Love charging through the pack more than once and Mike DeBruin leading for a time. It was a great job guys! Also I want to acknowledge Brian Fox for a great job in his first ever start. Nothing like a national race to break you in. Good job goes out to Matt “I don’t use my Brakes any ways” Tucker in coming in Second in AP on Saturday. Young Webster did well also in GPK.
The week before we traveled to Cass County Fair in Nebraska for a show with our friends from Kansas. It was a a lot of fun seeing them and making some new friends. We put on a really good show with Marty Kunkle and Marty Murphy racing hard in the modified class , that was a blast by the way. Thanks Marty. Michael and Dan Love spent some family time in GP with Derik See bringing in second place at the event.Thank you to The American Heartland Lawn Mower Racers for facilitating this great event and we hope to return next year. Hope to see you at the next race , Sunday August 24th at River Bottom Raceway in Carlisle , Iowa.
