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.
