Hampton, Va --
HFR Shows Off in the Month of June and also stumbles a little.
Ryan’s #55 www.RaceRap.com / Hillco Building Maintenance Mini Cup car racked up 3 wins & a second in the last 4 races in June. Ryan continues to hold the HRKC points lead in the Mini Cup class.
When crew chief Michael Hill suggested some minor changes, driver Ryan told him DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING.
HFR effort in the #15 Hillco Building Maintenance/RaceRap.com Arena car is not doing as well.
Ryan and the whole HFR team is working real hard on the suspension car but has not found the same success. After making weekly changes and going backwards crew chief Michael has decided to go back to the original setup. There are only 2 races left in the Summer Pro Challenge with Hampton Roads Kart Club. Results in June were 2-9th place and 2-10th place finishes. Ryans is currently 7th in points for the season.
After the final 2 races, HFR is taking the car to the shops and taking the car apart and down to the bare chassis and go over every item, install worn out parts, refresh shocks and a new power plant for the 2008-2009 Arena Racing Season.
ARUSA will hold 15 races in the Hampton Coliseum beginning in October 2008 and running through March 2009.
Ryan is driving for DSM Racing and teaming up with 16 year old Samantha Lightner(#56). Samantha will be starting her 2nd season after a hard luck 1st year. DSM & HFR have combined efforts to field the 2 car team with the teenagers. Both fathers, Doug & Michael will work together to lead both teenage drivers in the 2008-2009 ARUSA Season.
Ryan and dad (Michael) have developed a sponsorship and marketing plan for the up coming 2008-2009 season for Ryan and the entire HFR team. Michael also is working with Dana (Samantha’s) Mom on sponsorship and marketing for the Gaithersburg,Md driver.
