It was a night of heartbreak for some drivers and good fortune for others in the Outlaw Midgets Race Club at Sunset Speedway on August 18, 2018.

The #5 Jody Bound won both heats, but alas it was too much for the little engine that could dominate and it expired just a few laps into the 25 lap main feature. This left the door open for some of the other fast racers to capitalize on Bounds misfortune. A handful of cars had brake issues and had to pull off to keep the #5 company in the Field of Broke Dreams. With Spiderman in the house, another Super Hero was to rise up and “steal” the victory.

The #53 of Mike Bradley championed his speedy car through the various villains of Midget Mayhem to capture the Checkered Flag and the claim his first feature victory. With Bradley Brothers Racing’s Crew Chief Russ Bradley cheering on and Car Chief Jo Bradley nervously watching with Chief Car Tuner Tom Bradley, The #53 Dayco Sponsored car fought valiantly with the likes of  the dastardly Woodland Brothers #48 Brian Woodland and #84 Richard Woodland, The Flying, No Horned, Purple People Eater of #62 Rob McCall, and the Dark Knight of #37 Steve Lassman, through the 25 laps of organized chaos.

Day 2 of the Beach Side Double Header from Sauble Speedway

Hot temperatures (Only mildly warm for Me) were the thought of the day as the Outlaw Midget series took to the track.

No one was doing the Sauble Wobble on this day. The Cold Beers would have to wait.

With a smaller field of cars, but a stout field none the less, the Racing started with 2 pretty exciting Heat Races.

Heat #1 saw #5 Jody Bound start a new win streak and Heat #2 saw the #24 Ryan Brown out pace the others for the Checkered Flag.

After his unfortunate DQ the previous day, #5 Jody Bound proved to everyone, that it was just motivation for his Larry’s Small Engine sponsored Midget racer. Bound drove like the proverbial pissed-off teenager to trounce the field for the feature win.

The top 3 on the night were 1st Place #5 Jody Bound, 2nd Place #62 Rob McCall and 3rd Place #2 Jessica James

Congratulations to All the Outlaw Midget Racers for an Excellent Race Weekend.

An almost Perfect weekend, on and off the track.

Summer, Beach, Race Cars and HOT, make it a Great Time for the Outlaw Midgets

It was ALMOST Perfect for the #5 Jody Bound too.

The Saturday crowd at Sauble Speedway left the evening thinking that Bound had indeed kept his Perfect season intact, but the Rule Book said otherwise, as Bound was DQ’d afterwards for violating Rule #6 that states… Any car leaving the race track surface for mechanical repairs during the
race or during a caution will be considered out of the race. DNF (HOT PIT
repairs will not be allowed)

During the main event, Bound was involved in an early lap incident that saw a few cars spin and make contact. Bound, with damage to the #5, left the track to repair and after re-starting at the back, came through the entire field to “win” the event. He was later disqualified, handing the Victory to the #62 of Rob McCall.

This moved the grid up one spot, placing the official finish as follows. 1st Place#62 Rob McCall, 2nd Place#24 Ryan Brown and 3rd Place#48 Brian Woodland

Heat wins went to #22 Amanda McCall and #05 Jody Bound

The #5 Jody Bound has continued his perfect Outlaw Midgets season in 2018 at Full Throttle Motor Speedway @ Varney.

And… He did it without Car Owner Larry Wilson present.

Larry was Yachting Around the World, Playing Baccarat with Members of Spectre, While saving the Plant From Evil Forces. (He’s THAT kinda guy).

 

Bound had two heat wins and the Feature. The other heat wins went to #84 Richard Woodland.

Thanks go out to Full Throttle Motor Speedway @ Varney for an entertaining evening of racing with the ever present threat of foul weather. They put on a rather interesting 3-car chain race that has Teams of 3 cars attached with chains that race around the track for the Checkered Flag and Bragging rights. It was different.

 

Congratulations to ALL the racers on a Fine Performance.

Happy Fathers Day to All Dad’s Everywhere.

Sadly, I lost my Dad in 1996, but not a day goes by that He doesn’t influence my decisions. 

I always thought He looked like Roger Moore (Bond, James Bond) in his Tuxedo.

I miss and Love You Dad.

Yep, I’m a Lucky Guy.

One of the bonuses of traveling with the Outlaw Midgets is I get to go to tracks see some Old Barrie Speedway and Sunset Speedway faces, and meet some new faces, as well.

There are far too many people to name personally, but a few stand out. Jerry Abramowicz, Eric Uprichard, Ashley McCubbin, Brian Watts, and Mike Walker.

Not only that, I get the best seat in the house for ALL the Great Racing Action.

Yep, I’m a Lucky Guy.
