The WTOE race car on the track for practice at Rockingham. Greg Grindstaff, driver of the car reports, "We qualified a very respectable 12th place at 120.789mph out of 54 cars. At the start of the race we just settled in and tried to stay out of trouble and log laps. We had a few cautions early but were nowhere near the accidents. We were running 7th when the caution came out around lap 60 and the car lost power under caution. The car was pushed into the pits and we changed ignition module and it still wouldn't fire, then we changed the ignition coil and it fixed it, but we were 21 laps down. After returning to the track we were passing cars left and right and I was having a ball. The car was very fast and a real joy to drive. The end result was a disappointing 28th place finish. I know without a shadow of a doubt that if we hadn't had ignition trouble we would have had a top 10 finish easily. All in all it was a decent outing for us, we completed the race, we had a very competitive car, had fun and didn't put a scratch on the car. I had 3 goals for the race: have fun, bring the car home in one piece and a 15-20th place finish,,,, I guess 2 out of 3 is not all that bad since it was my first race on a speedway at that kind of speed. I also want to take this opportunity to thank  all of our sponsors, WTOE, Gregs Speedliner Spray-in-Bedliners, Carolina Sign Source, Helens Restaurant, Spruce Pine Tire, and a special thanks to Royal Plaza Motel in Rockingham for giving us a couple of rooms for Friday night.
