Speed Features


Good Afternoon May Motorsports fans,

Our racing season officially comes to an end for 2012.  The last race of the season took place at Sandusky Speedway last weekend (10/21).  This was the 9/23 rescheduled event. Our cars finished 7th (lost air in wing) and 8th (just too tight) in this event.

We competed in 17 events, in four different states (IN, MI, NY and OH).  Our #7 piloted Charlie Schultz car finished in 3rd place in points in the MSA (Midwest Supermodified Association). The #77 piloted Matt Marlowe finished 5th in points and is Rookie of the Year.   Feel free to visit www.msasupermodifieds.com for the viewing of articles, photos, points, etc.

The following is the official race recap for this race.

 


 

DEI Sponsored Team Half Fast

September 27-30, 2012 – Another bittersweet weekend…sure, we love to go to Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, but the September event means the end to the AMRA season.  Sigh.

It rained off and on Thursday, but we were okay with that because it meant that the weather had a better chance of moving out of the area for the race weekend.

As many of you know, we’ve been struggling with our carburetor since we rebuilt our motor after that fateful blowup back in 2010.  We were over-carbureted and we knew it.  We were finally able to switch our S&S Super G to a Super B during our off-time in August and September.  We tested it out numerous times at our local track, Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan, but something was amiss with that carburetor, so our super good friend and mentor, Super Nate of Super V Cycle, joined us in Bowling Green and hooked us up with a super Super B.  We had to start back at Square One, so we truly needed the Friday Test session to work on our combination and dial the carb "in".

 


 

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.

 


 

Once again Doug Wind put his little Modern Performance Dodge SRT-4 that could atop the Street FWD rankings with a 40.597 blast. Wind’s 40.597 was faster than some of the Limited Class cars and put him in seventh overall at Texas. The victory puts Wind firmly in the lead of the Street Class Championship Chase, breaking a long-standing tie with Daniel O’Donnell and his Professional Awesome Evo 7. Both of these teams should be in Buttonwillow for our 2012 Championship finals with the Super Lap Battle so this Street Class Championship could come down to the wire.

 


 

Hello May Motorsports fans,

We are just checking in with a race weekend update.  Another “W” gets away from us again this race, which was quite disappointing.  #7 Charlie Schultz piloted red supermodified quickly made his way to the front in dominating fashion only to go pit side on lap 13 of a 30 Lap race due to the yoke on drive shaft flange broke.  #77 Matt Marlowe continued to battle out on the race track finishing 5th.  As we head into the final MSA race for the season we are positioned at 3rd and 5th in the points.  The following is the official race recap.
