Port O Cool Texas World Dirt Track Championship
Fri-Sat, March 2-3, 2012

Texas Motor Speedway

Fort Worth, TX

Port O Cool Texas World Dirt Track Championship


 Well race season is underway and this is the first time we have visited the Texas Motor Speedway. Overall Zack really like the facility and the track with exception of a couple holes that developed later on in the nights. The first night was qualifying night and Zack won his heat from 2nd starting him in the 9th starting spot for the feature. The feature was only 15 laps and the top 8 were locked in to the big show for Saturday night. Zack finished 8th and qualified for the dash on Saturday night. Saturday the top 8 redrew for the dash and Zack drew 5th. He finished 5th so that is where he started the A Main. His car was really good and he actually got under the leader Chris Brown, but hit a hole and lost alot of track. At the end he was right on first and second, coming in 3rd. However, the winner was disqualified due to a chunk of lead falling off and being too light. So Zack ended up 2nd and he was really happy with the car! Good way to start the season!

 Well on our first night, Zack started 4th in his heat and ended up 3rd. There usually isnt much passing in the heats here. Then he won the B Main from 2nd starting him 17th in the feature. Zack's car was really good and he made his way through the field up to finish 5th! On Saturday night our luck was not so hot. He went from 6th to 5th in the heat race. He got 6th in the B Main but the track locked down in the Feature so he pulled off.

 Wow how exciting this week was!! We tried qualifying on the first night. Zack was fastest time qualifier in his heat so since they invert, he started 6th. He got up to 3rd which started him 8th in the feature. His car was good and he got to 3rd. He had such a good night that it qualified him for the Saturday night A Main. So we got to watch a couple of night of racing, it was kinda nice! So then saturday came. All he had to do was run the Big Main Event for $15,000 to win. He started 7th and right away we knew the car was good. He got up to 4th pretty quickly, then lap by lap kept passing very good cars. He finally got to 2nd and it looked like he was reeling in the leader a little bit and the yellow came out. With 4 to go Zack was sitting in 2nd. The green came out and Zack had a great start. He stayed with him and with 3 to go he was leading by a bumper... but the leader ended up getting us and we came home second. We still won $8,000 and that is Zack's biggest pay day since he started racing. We were thrilled and excited about the finish!

 Well tonight didn't go as planned either. The track was in bad condition when we showed up and Zack had to pack it in for his hot lap session. Then he drew the tail again on a one lane track. He finished 2nd to last and didn't make it through the B Main either. We were given a provisional but didn't take it, because that track is definately not one worth a provisional.

 Well tonight wasn't too bad considering the conditions. Zack finished 2nd in his heat putting him 12th in points for the A Main. He got a really good start in the feature getting ready to pass Tesch, Gustin, & Hughes, for 8th, when the track locked down and he had to get in line for the remaining of the race. He finished 10th and we will take it considering the track!

 Well tonight didn't go very well. Started towards the back of the heat and couldn't go anywhere, it again was pretty one lane. Started towards back of B and gave it all he had but fell short. He took a provisional and started the back of the feature but pulled in as the track locked down. We are starting to see a pattern in our awful starts and tracks, so hopefully things will start turning around in both departments!!

Heart O Texas Speedway

Elm Mott, TX

 Well this week has been interesting. I raced the stockcar in Osky on Wednesday night, but first I got a flat tire, then I pulled in for losing oil pressure so the night wasn't so successful. Then we piled in the hauler and left from Osky to head straight to Waco, Texas. We drove till almost 4 then stopped and slept a little. We got back on the road and the garmin was telling us we would get there pretty close to 7:00 which was hot laps. We hit terrible stopped traffic in Dallas and had to take another route but we pulled in 3 minutes till 7. Made it to the drivers meeting and was ready to go. Started 2nd in my heat and got 1st. I redrew 7 for the feature and finished 6th. It was one lane on the bottom all night so pretty happy with my luck and car for tonight.
