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.
