First Win
« on: September 25, 2019, 02:54:50 PM »
My son, Joshen  won top eliminator Sunday at the LiL' MAMA Memorial at Osceola Dragway.  We didn't have a perfect day, we just had a better day than the other guys.  We did not expect to get a check mark in the "W" column this soon so we are both still pumped up!!

The reaction of everyone has been supportive and awesome. First time out we red-lit in the first round.  Second time out we made it to the semi-finals and went out. Third time out finals and a win.   We are going out again Sunday for our last time this season, we'll see what we get.  Stay tuned, report at 11:00

Well the last race of the season was educational.  Won first round, went to second round, did burnout, backed up, staged, put thumb on button, took foot off brake and rolled thru the light.  Wire on back of button on steering wheel came off! I'll bet that will never happen to us again, lesson learned.

I never liked the feeling after you won and got back to your pit and noticed everybody had packed up and gone home already
