          Matt will be returning to the U Car Class this year, driving the #29 Black and Silver Ford Probe.  This car is the winning car Randy drove last year.  The car has been expertly repaired following a meeting with the wall at last season’s last race.  Matt look’s forward to a great season.

Race Results – JRN Racing takes on the 1st Super Street race with a win and eight place run.
 
          Our first Super Street race of the season was this past Saturday.  Jamie and Randy’s day started out great, with practice times at the front of the pack.  The car’s were handling good and practice times were upfront.  The rain got us mid afternoon and delayed racing for a couple of hours.  This set-up for a 5 minute practice at which the race starting order was set from the order of the fastest practice times.  Randy ended up started 2nd, and Jamie started 9th.  Not sure what happened to Jamie, I think we were worrying to much about keeping distance between us and the other cars to have clean track, which slowed us down some.  Anyway, the car was faster than the lap times indicated.
 
During the race, the cars & drivers drove well.  Randy pursued the leader until lap 34, in which we was able to get under him and take the top spot.  Randy battled for the lead until lap 47, when another caution came out.  On the restart, Randy led the way and battled with the second place car the remaining way.  On the final lap, the second place car tried to get under going into Turn 3, and through Turn 4.  The two bumped some, but in the end, Randy came out on top!  This was a great start to our season.
 
Jamie spent the entire race battling with middle of the pack cars.  At one point, the car got away from him, and he looped it around.  Although he was put to the back for causing the caution, he worked his way up through the field, and got stuck behind another couple of cars.  Those cars raced each other hard, not giving any room for Jamie to get around them.  On lap 47, those cars got together and spun each other out.  Jamie, having no where to go, got caught in the mess.  Some nose and fender damage was seen, but the car was able to keep on going to the end.  Jamie ended up 8th.
 
Matt raced this past Saturday for the first U car race of the season.  There was a huge field, with 30 cars qualifying.  Matt, still feeling out the new car, qualified a very respectable 10th.  Matt’s lap times were only .3 sec’s off the leaders, so you can see how close the competition is.
 
The race was a caution filled adventure.  Matt fell back a couple of positions on the start, but had a good race clean race, although his spotter had him jump the start once during a restart.  No harm, no foul, and kept going without notice.  He was able to gain those positions back plus one.  In the end, Matt finished a respectable 9th place.  As Matt gains more experience driving the car, which is much faster than his old car, he will continue to climb his way to the top.
 
This year Nick, 13, (the N in JRN) has decided to hang up his helmet for the time being.  His interest in Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, and Baseball will keep him going and involved in sports.  Maybe in a year or two when he is a old enough, he will get behind the wheel of a Supertruck.
 
We also want to thank our friends and teammates are supporting us again this season, and who have put time, material, and energy into our racing this year:
Bryan Stilley                                      Sammy Gaita
