5-15-2011 410 Racing at Huset’s Speedway

We had a enjoyable night of racing. It was our the first night, with out Marlon Jones on our team and the first night for Aaron Wendt to race a 410 Sprint car, and it also was his 20th birthday.
We had a challenge with many last minute changes, but we all were happy with the outcome. Aaron started 22nd and moved to 17th during a Green, White, Checkered Race. Kelo TV filmed the race and we were able to watch the car through the corners and race with Donny Schatz #15. A funny moment was after the race, when Aaron said he had pasted a yellow car (#51) and thought it was trying to pass him back, when after 4 or 5 laps the #15 of Schatz made the pass. Aaron was shocked to know it was Donny he had been racing the whole 5 laps. LOL we all had a good laugh at that. We have the video on our Facebook page and will try to have here soon!

7-16-2010 Rock Rapids HRA 410 Show “Yes, it is over now” LOL

Raced tonight at Rock Rapids 410 Show and had fuel issue and missed heat race and Started 14th last in B main. Raced to 4th and got a transfer to ‘A’ main started 19th and went to 13th when hit a hole and spunout.. Many crazy drivers out there, so called it a night! Crazy night to say the least, even had a Fuel stop in a 25 lap race. I think there were 40 yellow laps tonight?

Didn’t help at all getting run over by a push truck either (not many have seen this happen before!) A side panel and left shock was bent, so a little off on shock travel in the ‘A’. Maybe the guys Truck Insurance will kick-in on this one LOL

7-01-10 WOO Show was Good, but we had hard time

The #9m strugled a lot through the night and never made it out of the B Main. The Track was Wet and heavy and we really had a hard time adjusting tonight, but will bounce back. Was fun to see Sammy move to the front for the WIn!

6-18-2010 Rock Rapids Speedway 410 Show

Needless to say it was a Wild night for the whole Empire Team. We started to go to the race and had the Truck blow out the Transmission. We were able to get a Friends helping hand to barrow a Truck from Select Motors in Sioux Falls.(Thanks Tim!!)

WE made it to the track in time and finished 6th in our Heat Race. It was a 30 car field Tonight, Great turn out!! After making some changes and replacing the front brake caliper and pads, Marlon drove the car to a Blowout WIN in the B Main!

Transferring us to the A MAin we started in 16th place and the 9m was moving to the front, making it to 9th before the right rear blew out (later finding a large hole cut in tread,must have been a shape piece from some of the blown motors during the night) This put Marlon in the back now and he was able to drive to 8that the finish! Great job Marlon and the whole Team!! Fun night even with so much trouble.

6-6-2010 Huset’s Speedway Marlon takes 7th place in A Main!

It has been a challendge for all teams this year trying to work with GOODYEAR tires and there sizes and wear issues, but we are getting close.
