2016 Carolina Fall Nationals

For our 2016 Carolina Fall Nationals, we did driver introductions, photos with our special guest from Charlotte Motor Speedway, Lugnut, and also group photos of each class.

We also did a special dual qualifying format that included both batch qualifying and heat races. Dillon qualified 4th in Jr Honda and 5th in Jr Animal.

In the Jr Honda heat race, he started 5th and won! Dillon started 1st in the Jr Animal heat race, but spun early in the race and had to go to the back. He raced his way back up to finish 3rd.

Dillon started the Jr Honda feature race 3rd, but was involved in a wreck on the start that sent him into the pits, so he had to restart in the back. He raced his way up to the middle of the field twice but then was involved in wrecks each time that again sent him to near the back. He was able to pass his way back up to 5th, but didn't have enough laps to make it any further forward. He finished 5th but we are so incredibly proud of him for making passes and doing his best.

In the Jr Animal feature race, Dillon started 5th and was running 4th when he got caught up in a wreck and had to come in the pits. He came back out to the trail of the field with 9 laps to go, but there just wasn't much he could do with dirty tires and a bent up car. He finished 8th. As with the Jr Honda race, his finishing position doesn't tell the true story of how well he raced. He did a great job and we are super proud of him!

2016 Dixie Shootout #10 - MAQMA & Banquet

11/5 (MAQMA): In Jr Honda, Dillon finished 7th in the B Main and didn’t make it into the A Main feature race. In Jr Animal, he finished 6th.

11/6 (Dixie Shootout final results and banquet): It was a roller coaster of a weekend for our final Dixie Shootout regional race, but we did manage to bring home a super awesome trophy for 4th in the season points for Jr Animal. Unfortunately, we ended up finishing just 3 points outside the top 5 in Jr Honda.
