Headed to the High banks of Salem Speedway (WOW) is all I can say. We arrived on Friday the 17th for testing and pulled into the track and was shocked by the 32 degree banking. The track is rough but the history of the track is amazing and it was amazing to to know the drivers from all of the series who had ran at Salem. We unloaded and our Crew Chief (Spiff) was in awe when Joshua hit the track he figured it out right away and testing went great on Friday. At the end of the day we had a team meeting to talk about Saturdays practice and our plan. We all agreed let hit the first 30 min session and run laps until Joshua was good with the car so we did ran about 10 laps came in and got the car cooled down and put on our Mock qualifying tires. Joshua went out and turned a very fast lap and we were ready for qualifying. It was time to qualify and the 30 car went out Joshua was fast and qualified 15 and we made the race and he was looking forward to the 100 lap race on the high banks of Salem Speedway. Driver introductions and race time. Pace car is leading the filled and Joshua is focused on the race getting started we knew it would be a long one. There were several bad crashes in the race and and Joshua was moving forward he worked his way to 6th and he knew we had a car for the top 3. Joshua had to save tires and fuel because of the caution laps and he continued to be fast and hit his marks and ended up 9th in the race. We are very satified with the car the team and our driver. Next race is on July8th in birch Run MI.
