Our final race of the 2016 season was the URC Sprint'sBig Track Classic at Bridgeport Speedway November 4th and 5th. Friday night, Davey drove a great race and finished 5th. The car was a great, and the team was sure a few changes would put them in contention to pick the win on Saturday.
Davey finished 2nd in his heat on Saturday and made the inversion, a 6 was drawn which put the 747 on the pole for the feature event. Davey and eventual race winner, Lucas Wolfe, were in a league of their own as they maneuvered through lap traffic. On lap 17, problems under the hood caused the 747 to come to a stop on the outside of turns 3 and 4. It was determined a blown motor would end Davey's night, and season.
Our 2017 plans are in the works, Davey and his wife, Jamie, are expecting their first child on April 14, 2017 (Just in time for racing season!). As plans are finalized they will be announced here.
