I-88 Speedway (4/22/16)

I-88 Speedway – Afton, NY – 4/23/16

Starting Position: 7th

Finishing Position: 1st

Summary: After winning another heat race this season, Andy was in the redraw for the feature event starting order.  He redrew the 7th starting position out of 12, and it proved to be a lucky number 7 for the Wild Child.  He made his way to the 2nd position by lap 7, and quickly ran down the leader Mike Mahaney.  Andy was able to put the car up on the top side and power by Mahaney, and never looked back from there.  Andy went on to take the win by a full straightaway margin.  Andy and Mike are now tied for the championship point lead at I-88.

South Jersey Shootout (4/17/16) – Bridgeport Speedway

South Jersey Shootout – Bridgeport Speedway

Starting Position – 6th

Finishing Position – 27th (DNF)

 

Summary:  After falling back to mid pack early in the race due to a harder tire compound choice,  Andy started working his way back up through and had just cracked the top 10 again  on lap 20 when his engine failed.  He shut down the car immediately to prevent any further damage, and was forced to end his night early.  As he was coming back through the pack, his lap times were identical and some times faster than those of the top 3 runners.
