|Official Results for April 19th|
|Apr 18, 2008, 12:06 |
After lengthy discussions with NASCAR scoring officials and track officials, the following results have been issued from last week’s main events in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Speedway Chevrolet Super Stock Division and the Les Schwab Tires Bomber Division. In regards to the Super Stock event, discussions were necessary due to an incorrect line-up at the time of the final green flag restart of the main event. Drivers that desire clarification as to the reason for their respective finishing positions are welcome to contact Lex Johnson at the speedway office or via E-Mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

This is what greeted me on Friday the 18th as I checked out the Evergreen speedway website (Evergreenspeedway.com). After a week of what I'm sure were heated and tense discussions and negotiations, the results from the 1st night of racing were finally official and somehow, we ended up losing 3 positions. Now, I kind of anticipated there would be a shift, but man, it still sucks going from 7th to 10th because of scoring and timing errors.
Normally, as the crew chief and spotter, I would be pretty upset about this. But after deep contemplation and placing myself in a Zen like trance for approximately 72 seconds (thats a huge amount of time to have to myself lately!) I understood what happened, why it happened and am just hoping that things will find thier level concerning this later in the season.
On an exciting note, Scott informed me today that our monetary concerns for the season are over as our first winnings check arrived in the mail today. With the 65.00 we won for our 10th place finish (its more like 100.00 but there was a mystery deduction that I need to call on) I can now go ahead and buy that can of SprayAway glass cleaner and 12 pack of blue shop towels I always wanted. And who says that racing on the local level is not just fun, but very lucrative as well! We might have enough left over to get mocha's for the team on Saturday too!
Weather forecast for Saturday April 26th, Considerable cloudiness. Highs in the low 60s and lows in the upper 40s. Lets keep our fingers crossed for those clouds to stay away!
