June 11th Berlin Raceway
The team was excited we were headed to Michigan speedway and racing at Berlin Raceway so who could ask for better. We traveled to Berlin on the 9th and participated in the rookie testing session. Joshua was turning some fast laps and liked the track ended the day in the top 5 for speeds and was excited about practice on Friday. We headed back to the track and practice car was awesome and our mock qualifying runwent well so we were really looking forward to out qualifying session on Saturday and the race. Saturday was another hot one and the team was working hard to get the car set for qualifying and the balanced for the long run in the race. Joshua qualified and missed the race by 4 one hundreds of a second so wh was in the last chance race the winner makes the show. Joshua knew the car was fast and he felt good about the race. What an exciting race he went out and lead the first 20 laps and the 2nd place car blew a tire and hit the wall and that brought out the yellow. Joshua cooled his tires down and after serveral laps under caution the track was cleared and the race was ready to restart. Joshua took off and was leading by half a track and on lap 26 another car spun and brought out the yellow again Joshua cleaned and cooled his tires, With only 4 laps to go he was pretty excited he knew if he could continue to get great restarts he would win this and make the show. Green Green Green on the radio he took off and going into turn one the 2nd place car a local driver took Joshua out sad but true on purpose with only 4 laps Joshua had to go to the back and the person who spun him went to the back. Now still 4 laps to go 10 cars left in the race the green came out Joshua worked his way to 3rd in three laps just not enough time to get to the front. Needless to say not a happy camper but very happy with the car and performance. Next race Salem Speedway.
