2016 June Race Recaps


6/25/16 - Dillon did an awesome job qualifying on Saturday! He qualified 2nd in Jr Honda and 3rd in Jr Animal (just 0.002 out of 2nd). They inverted the top 3, so he started 2nd in Jr Honda and 1st for Jr Animal. This was our Jr Honda Cup Race, so Dillon got to be pulled out onto the track to music and was interviewed before the race. During the race, he tried to go for the lead a little too early and ended up spinning out. He finished 9th. In Jr Animal, we were unfortunately wrecked under caution before the race started, which knocked off the chain. After coming off the track to get the chain fixed, Dillon had to go to the back of the field for the start of the race. He ended up finishing 5th. Dillon has improved so much since the start of the year and we are so proud of him!

2016 Dixie Shootout #5 - MCQMRA

For the fifth race of the Dixie Shootout series, we were back at MCQMRA in Nashville, TN, and it was HOT! Dillon and Caroline spent lots of time hanging out in the trailer in front of the fan trying to stay cool.
In Jr Animal, Dillon qualified 4th and with the invert, he started on the outside pole. At the beginning of the race, he got shuffled back to 5th. The race went green from start to finish, so he ended up just riding it out to finish in 5th place.

In the Jr Honda race, he qualified 7th in a very tight field. He was running in 5th when 2 cars ahead of him got together and he had no where to go, ending up "inadvertently involved" in the wreck after the initial contact. Unfortunately, a bad call sent us to the back of the field with just 4 laps to go. Dillon finished 9th.
