KRT Needing Some Luck This Weekend

  After 3 weeks off from racing, Koens Racing Team will resume action at the race track this Saturday night in Roseburg, Oregon at the Douglas County Speedway in the #28 GTR Simulator Camaro Super Late Model.

  Some bad racing luck has hampered the team recently with a blown motor, electrical issues and most recently a bent right front lower control arm causing the handling to be problematic resulting in poor performances. "We know this is a front running car" said Wade Koens driver of the #28 GTR Simulator Camaro. Koens went on to say, " we just need a little good luck and an entire trouble-free race from start to finish. If we get that, then we will be near the front towards the end of the race and in a position to put this GTR Simulator Camaro in victory lane".

  Koens also mentioned that during the time away from the track he keeps his reflexes, hand to eye coordination and driving skills sharp by buckling up in his factory-built GTR Simulator at home. "The GTR simulator provides an excellent feel for my real race car, giving me a realistic racing experience without leaving my house". To see the great lineup of GTR Simulators please visit their website at www.gtrsimulator.com and when you order your simulator, please tell them that Koens Racing Team sent you...then you too will be on the fast track to realistic racing!

3rd Generation Driver earns 7th Place Finish in Racing Debut

3rd generation driver, 15 year old Andrew Koens, earned a very respectable 7th place finish out of 13 cars in his first career modified division start! Had it not been for a last lap spin in front of Andrew, he would have secured 5th or 6th place.

The Koens Racing Team (KRT) spent their Friday at the track working on the racecar late into the night with clutch issues and a ignition wiring problem found during practice. The team worked hard in order to make the race the following day!

In the 35 lap main event at the Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon that featured many wrecks, spins and fierce racing, Andrew Koens navigated his #5 Loggers Taphouse Chevy through obstacles during the race, keeping his car clean while garnering much needed racing experience along the way. With his fastest lap of 16.3 during the race, Koens showed the speed needed to compete up front soon.

Watch for the in-car video to be published soon (this week) on the KRT youtube channel.


KRT would like to thank the following partners with this #5 modified car; Kamper Korner RV Center, Loggers Tap House, Blue Ox Towing Products, Mountain Dew KickStart,Thetford & Cagle Communications!

3rd place finish for Wade Koens

We came out to the track on Saturday May 17th, without a moment to spare.
We were still finishing up on last minute repairs as parts had just come in, when the clock read 4:15pm. With qualifying coming up soon, the team loaded the car and headed out to the track. Luckily, our shop is only a quick 10 minute drive!
Unfortunately, we missed all 3 practice sessions and knew we would have to qualify without any knowledge of how the car would feel. We took the best guesses that we could trying to set up the car after the carnage during the last race tore up our entire left front. 
We ended up qualifying 4th fastest with a 15.2. Fast time qualifier had a 14.9.
We worked on the handling of the car during the rest of the evening in preparation for the main event. It seems to have paid off as we ended the main in 3rd position. Not the finish that we want but the car was good and with some more practice laps, we should be in the mix of things during the next race slated for June 7th at the Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon.

We had a great race going last Saturday at the Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon. While leading the race, the car stepped out on exit of turn 2 (might have had some help) sending us straight towards the wall. The car over-corrected before hitting the wall but we collected the #11 car and when he made contact with our car it sent him airborne and ruined our great run as well. We will get the car back together and hope to make the next race on May 17th. The support that we have from our wonderful sponsors is second-to NONE and we look forward to getting this Camaro back out front soon! Umpqua Survival - RoseburgBlue OxLoggers Tap HousePepsi NEXTClint Newell Auto Group
