Week 15 - May Motorsports Recap

Hello May Motorsports Fans,

This past weekend our race team went to Anderson Speedway to compete in an MSR Supermodified racing event.  Our cars qualified 2 and 3rd fastest.  We thought this is going to be our night, we are going to take home the big check and trophy.  #7 car was in a different zip code all day/night long and #77 had proved was the 2nd fastest car on the track.  Unfortunately though, that was not to be the case. The following is the official race recap.

The 100-lap feature event was broken up into two 50-lap segments with a new inversion after the first segment. Charlie Schultz put in a dominating performance in the first segment nearly lapping the entire field. Schultz put on a driving exhibition as he worked lapped traffic to perfection using the outside groove.

At the resumption of the second segment, Schultz picked up where he left off and quickly resumed the point. It appeared as if the race were his to lose until his luck ran out on lap 78. Schultz appeared to make contact with a lapped car and in the process breaking a heim joint and sending his car to the pits for the night. Edwards assumed the lead and held off a fast approaching Jimmy McCune to claim his second MSRSMS victory of the season.

In victory lane Edwards explained how quickly his luck turned for the better. "We had the second best car all night " explained Edwards. "We qualified fast time but we struggled. I was just riding and our only chance was if Charlie had bad luck and he did. It’s unfortunate for him. But, I'd rather be lucky than good. We got lucky tonight but we'll take it. I can’t thank Don Wilshe with BIOBASED.US enough as he does a lot for the series" concluded Edwards.

Edwards began the night by collecting $500 from BIOBASED.US for setting fast time with a lap of 10.873 seconds. Heat races were won by Jimmy McCune and Charlie Schultz.

Next up for May Motorsports will be an MSA race at Sandusky, OH on 10/20 and 10/21 which is a rescheduled due to weather make up race from 9/22 and 9/23.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate this time.  If not, then our season will come to an end.

Thanks for your support.
