May 9,2009 Results from Baton Rouge Raceway

Had 12 cars at BRR and we drew dead last for our starting position.That put us starting 5th in the second heat.We wound up 4th after some real close and exciting racing.This gave us a 7th place starting spot in the feature.Well,I missed the set up a little bit again.The track was really slick and I didn't tighten the car up near as much as I should have,so I had a handfull in the feature.We actually wasn't as bad as I feared we would be,and actually worked our way up to 3rd at one point,but the right rear tire couldnt take any more and i lost the little bit of grip that I had,plus made a bad judgement and changed my line up the last few laps and lost a couple spots.So,we wound up 5th at the end,not too bad I guess,considering it was an uphill battle all night.Oh well,I'm learning,just gotta get better at making the right chassis adjustments,I always do too much or not enough,so I'll figure it out soon i hope.We'll regroup and get ready for Pike County Speedway next weekend,hopefully We'll have good news after that one.
