Dixie Shootout #3 - NC

This week the Dixie Shootout Regional race was at "home" for us and racers from all over the region traveled to North Carolina to race at NCQMA.

We debuted our new Jr. Honda look for this race with an awesome wrap designed by WAR Ink Graphics! We'll reveal that in a separate post.

Dillon had a really good weekend. It is amazing to us to look at how much he has improved since this time last year. He qualified 8th out of 15 cars in an extremely close field (only 2 tenths separated the majority of the cars), which put him starting 2nd in the B-main. He hung on in the B-main to finish 3rd. He started 9th in the feature race and finished 7th.

Then we capped the weekend off with lunch with a few racing friends!

2015 March - May Race Recaps

March
3/28/15 - It was a cold and exciting day! Dillon started 3rd in the heat race and finished 5th. He started 4th in the feature and finished 6th. The results don't really tell the whole story, because he raced really well today and we are super proud of him!



April
4/18/15 - Unfortunately, not the day we were hoping for. Dillon got caught up in a multi-car wreck while coming to the green flag and Ron and all the amazing other dads who jumped in to help weren't able to get it fixed in time to get back out there. Dillon still had a great day spending time with all his friends and we all enjoyed a post-race potluck with our racing family. Hopefully we'll have better luck next week!



May
5/10/15 - Dillon had a good day, but we are definitely still learning. He started 1st and finished 3rd in his heat race. He started 5th and finished 7th in the feature. It was an exciting race and we are very proud of him!

 So very proud of Dillon! He started 7th and finished 9th in the A Main
















Way to go, Dillon!

Dixie Shootout #1 - Nashville

We headed back to Nashville, TN for the first Dixie Shootout regional race of 2015. Dillon was all set to make his Jr. Honda debut, but Mother Nature had other ideas. The kids played and had a good time while we watched it rain, eventually resulting in the races being postponed until tomorrow.

A lot of cars show up from all over the region to try and make it into the Dixie Shootout races. One big difference between racing these as a rookie and racing in the competitive classes (like Jr. Honda) is that as a rookie, everyone makes the feature race. In the competitive classes, we have lower mains to whittle down the field for the feature race to only 10 cars. Our main goal for the regional races this year is just to be one of the cars that makes it into the feature. The competition is fierce and the Junior classes consistently have the highest car counts, so it will be a tall order but hopefully something we can manage to accomplish.

Dillon qualified 14th out of 15 cars in Jr Honda. He will start 8th in the B Main to try and race his way into the feature. His times improved from practice to qualifying, so we just hope he continues to improve each time he goes out.

In the B Main race, he put down his best times of the day! He did GREAT, probably the best he's ever looked on the track. Had some passes and just looked like he belonged out there. He also really listened to the advice his daddy gave him about changing his line, which made Ron very happy, too!

Dillon did great in his first Jr Honda B Main. We didn't transfer into the feature, but Dillon did finish 5th, which made us the X car. If another car had come out of the race before the first lap was complete, he would have gotten to go out on the track to be in the race. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, but we are so proud of this boy anyway for even having a shot against all the veteran drivers that he was up against!

It was a long day and a very long drive home after the races that night, but overall traveling to Nashville to race was totally worth it!
