Play hard, Work Harder

This weekend was not a good one in the books for the 18 car; Started off the weekend in Greenbush, heat 1 row 3 on the inside. The car was only able to make 1 lap before having to pull of the track. Thinking the car was getting too much fuel, swapped a few things around in time for the feature where the 18 car would start row 7 inside. Unfortunately the 18 car was only able to make 2 laps this time before pulling off the track again. At this time we are suspecting...more

Well thankfully the news is good as it can be after looking more into what happened Sunday at BRRP during the feature when chain came off we noticed water coming from the engine block area.
