After spending the night in Birch Run on Friday night, Saturday late morning the team learned that the Flat Rock Joy Fair Memorial 100 had been cancelled due to weather. With the car in the trailer the team scrambled to find a place to race. They decided on making the long journey north to the Onaway Speedway. Despite never seeing the place previously, Justin was able to set fast time in qualifying. As the cars were lined up for the feature event, the rains rolled in cancelling the event and ruining what was looking to be a great run in the team's maiden voyage to the track. As with Birch Run Speedway the previous night, the team would like to tip their hat to the staff and ownership at Onaway Speedway for their great hospitality.
After a promising 4th place qualifying effort against a stout field of cars, Justin had to settle for a 5th place finish when the handling went away in the feature event. The team would like to thank the staff and new owner of the Birch Run Speedway (formerly Dixie Motor Speedway) for their excellent hospitality!
After qualifying 2nd Justin had to settle for a 3rd place finish with an ill handling car when the team missed the setup for the feature.
An experimental setup and limited practice time resulted in a disappointing night at Flat Rock Speedway for the Joy Fair Memorial 100. Justin qualified 10th and finished 14th. The team is looking to get back on track next weekend at Springport Mid-Michigan Speedway.
The first race back after getting the car back together, from getting wrecked at the Kalamazoo Speedway, Justin was able to park it in victory lane! After setting fast time, Justin started 12th and picked his way to the front en route to the win. Next up is the Joy Fair Memorial 100 at Flat Rock Speedway.
Justin was spun out 20 laps into the 100 lap Intimidator 100 at Kalamazoo Speedway. The resulting extensive damage from other cars piling into him, led in the team having to miss the season opener the following weekend at Springport Mid-Michigan Speedway. With a scheduled weekend off for May 12th, the team will be eager to get back to the track the weekend of May 19th.
The Claucherty Racing team is pleased to release a tentative schedule for the 2018 season, which can be found on the Schedule Page. This schedule is highly likely to change, as we're waiting on final details from the Main Event Outlaw Tour and a couple of tracks. Generally the first portion of the schedule is adhered to pretty closely with some modifications coming later in the season. As a rule of thumb we enjoy hitting most of the big races in the Midwest, but then staying close to home when such shows are not available. As always, the schedule is diligently updated on the the Schedule Page, so be sure to check back frequently. We're looking forward to an excellent season and can't wait to see everyone at the track!
