Andrew "The Wild Child" Koens kept his nose clean while driving a tight car all night long in the 75 lap main event. Although his ill-handling car made it tough to make passes, Andrew still managed to have the 4th best overall lap time during the main event! He also used his quick reaction skill to avoid contact with the spinning #09 car, sending Andrew into the dirt a
nd stopping just a few feet from the tire barrier. Andrew kept his position and continued on with his race.
September 12th is the last race of the season for the modified division at the Douglas County Speedway and the 17 year old driver is eager to end the year on a high note. "Our Umpqua Survival #5 Modified has been fast the last couple of races and we won at the last points race in Roseburg so we have to feel good going into the last race of the year here" Koens said. He went on to say "Our team has fought hard this season to overcome many mechanical issues early on, so we would like to begin our 2016 season on a positive note by winning the last race of 2015!"
Look for The Wild Child to be aggressive and fast en-route to his 2nd career victory this weekend.
