2014 Carolina Fall Nationals

Dillon qualified 5th out of the 20 Blue Rookies that came to race in the Carolina Fall Nationals. That is quite an accomplishment all by itself and we are super proud of him!

Unfortunately, in the feature the cars in front of him had some issues getting the race started which resulted in the final start being single file. After that, the cars spread out and everyone pretty much just rode in their position as the race went caution free. Dillon raced hard, but there's only so much you can do in 20 7 second laps. He did his best though, and we are proud of him, as always!

So the 2014 season is over and we have officially raced our final "rookie" race. Next year we'll be heading to Jr. Honda and Jr. Animal. I'm both anxious and excited to see what it will be like racing in the competitive classes. This was definitely a learning year for all of us, often frustrating but always rewarding. We made some amazing friends and lots of fun family memories of time spent together. Dillon still has a lot to learn but when I look at the improvement he made from the start of the year to the end, I am amazed by our little guy! He accomplished a lot this year and we're looking forward to what the 2015 racing season will bring.
