Holiday weekend provides fun and a new perspective for Mike Linder,(another win too).

You know that feeling when you wake up on a day off. For Mike, Steven, myself, and Jon Finsel, we were looking forward to sitting around staring blankly into the TV. Sponsor Rich Farmer changed all that. Calling it a last minute decision to race Monday is a lie, we had a whole two hours to completely prep a car that wasn’t even close to being race ready.

Saturday before the trip was made to Fremont the race world was buzzing with the news of two haulers in the pit area, the 83 and 26 of the NST. When the guys got to the track, prep was made for qualifying where Mike ended up fifth after time trials. Starting fifth in the first heat race the red 3 starting moving up (literally) at the drop of the green flag. With a wheelie Mike darted towards the wall for the only hiccup during the heat race. Using the top Mike was able to make it up to the runner up spot at the checkered flag.

With the invert the Andy James Motorsports entry rolled out for the feature in the six hole beside that 83. Slow and steady may have won one race but not this one. Using every line the track had to offer, the red 3 used the set up Steven and the guys gave him to perfection. Using patience and a heavy foot Mike moved through the field eventually passing pit side neighbor Bryan Scott for the lead around halfway into the race. The lead grew to a straightway at the finish. This was Mike’s second win of the year at Fremont.

Sunday at Attica the team was met by the new NST with their teams and officials. Knowing that the motor would come out of the car for a re-fresh at Kistler’s after the race, this was a night for testing. After qualifying 33rd out of 38 cars a 305 set up provided a little more speed. Herein lies the problem. Mike’s heat held Steve Kinser, Tim Kaeding, Paul McMahan, Shane Stewart, and All Star points leader Greg Wilson; and the track was also hammer down on the bottom, where Mike started ninth and finished seventh.

The B really didn’t get much better. Now that the track had become an absolute dust bowl, the problem was with seeing the track AND the cars around him. Mike made the decision halfway through to pull the car in and watch the A from the grandstands.

Andy James Motorsports is sponsored by Linder’s Speed Equipment, Beaverdam Contracting, Pro Shocks, Vision Quest, Engler Printing, J and J Auto Racing, Justco Machine, and Burns Iron and Metal.

When Kevin Nouse parked the R&R Motorsports #4R on the historic stage at Port Royal Speedway on April 29th, it was more than just another victory to go on his racing resume… it was something special. It marked the tenth consecutive season that Nouse has won a feature event in an open-cockpit car, and the 54th time he has visited victory lane in his career.

Although many drivers can boast current win streaks spanning out over consecutive years, what makes Kevin’s special is the variety of cars he has won in. It started in 1996 with a 270cc Micro Sprint and continued when he jumped into a 600cc Micro Sprint in 2000. Then, in 2002, Kevin moved to the ultra-competitive Super Sportsman division where he captured two victories as a rookie driver. In 2003, Kevin took another step forward. This time, he tackled the 358 Sprint Car division where he won three times as a rookie driver. Since then, Kevin has swapped his driving duties between a 410 and a 358 Sprint Car, gaining valuable experience along the way.

For the past 10 years, in 4 different divisions, one thing that you can rely on is seeing Kevin Nouse smiling in victory lane.

For more information on Kevin, please check out the official Kevin Nouse website at www.kevinnouse.com .
