The following is our race weekend recap!  This was the annual Non-Wing racing event in which we take off the wing and put a body on #77 Tim Ice Bodnar chassis weekly car.  For Charlie in the #7 car we bring out the Matczak chassis non-wing car.  This particular car we only run once a year and at this event.

Racing was pretty good and we were sitting pretty until inspection time.  Then the bomb was dropped that we were ½” too wide on the #7 Matczak car.  The problem was, we had gone to a wide five and forgot to remove the spacer.  So we took home a paycheck for 3rd and last.  Needless to say we were extremely disappointed.

Here is the racing recap from the weekend:

 


 

May Motorsports checking in with a quick racing weekend update.  Not too bad of a weekend … Charlie Schultz with a 3rd and Tim Ice with a 4th place finish.  What you won’t read below is that it was a photo finish between Charlie and Tim at the checker with a car in between them … both exciting and nerve wracking at the same time.  I do believe David and I got a few gray hairs on this one!!!!

The following is the published racing recap:

It was a historical night for Trent Stephens of Ravenna, Ohio as he captured the Midwest Supermodified Association Piney Lasky Memorial 50 at the Motordrome Speedway. It was the first ever Supermodified race contested at the fast ½-mile oval in Smithton, PA.

Stephens began the day etching his name in the record book during time trials as he set quick time with a lap of 15.332 seconds in the fastest lap ever run in Motordrome history. For the 50-lap feature the 22-year-old pilot of the ACME Racing #49 had a challenge ahead of him as he started 10th in the 13-car field.

 


 

May Motorsports headed to Oswego Speedway in NY for the Labor Day weekend Friday Night “non-sanctioned” wing show.  The below is the “official” racing recap.

Race Recap September 2nd

New Englander Joey Scanlon and Ohio’s Tim Ice led the 17 winged supermodifieds to Donnie Forbes green flag, with Ice’s red #77 jumping out to the early lead.  With Ice out front, action behind the 77 was fast and furious, as drivers looked to chase down the highflying Ohioans in the early stages.  Johnny Benson charged quickly to second spot, while all-time ISMA champ Perley went to the outside looking to move up.

 


 

Hello,
“Flat Rock, Michigan—August 15, 2011: When the MSA Super Modifieds visit Flat Rock Speedway Saturday night, August 20 for the first time in 30 years, a hefty “Flat-Out Flyin” $500 bonus awaits the driver that breaks and sets a new, all-time track record at the ¼ mile paved oval. The mark the MSA drivers will be shooting for is 10:239, set by Randy Sweet in a winged creation back on July 4, 1985.”

Unfortunately, MSA never was able to take the green due to the event being canceled around 6:00 due to rain.  We were able to get two practice sessions in with the May Motorsports  #7 Charlie Schultz car on the books recording the fastest times.  Whether Charlie or #77 driver Tim Ice could have collected the $500 bonus for breaking the track record when qualifying, we will never know!  So our night finished early, we loaded up in the rain and headed back down the highway towards home. 

Next up for May Motorsports is a non-sanctioned wing race at Oswego Speedway, Labor Day weekend on Fri., 9/2/11.

Everyone have a good week!

We hope this post finds you well and your summer enjoyable so far!

We raced at Lorain County Speedway this past Saturday (Lorain, OH).  Weather report was not too encouraging initially, but it ended up being a beautiful day for racing and that is exactly what we did!  Our two cars; #7 Charlie Schultz qualified 4th and #77 Tim Ice qualified 5th.  We started 7th and 8th and had one 3rd place podium finish with Tim Ice and Charlie placing 6th.  Unfortunately, Charlie got hit from behind, pushing him into another car which necessitated a quick pit stop causing him to go to tail.
