Everyone at Andy James Motorsports would like to send a huge thank you to Paul and Tom Kistler and all of their employees. There might even be a big wet kiss thrown in but for right now we will just wait on that. Everyone at Kistler Engines worked very hard to find the “problem” and without their help we still wouldn’t have made any laps this weekend.
Saturday evening was opening night at Fremont Speedway and with the problem solved Mike went out and ran the fourth fastest lap in qualifying, even though he went out near the end. With the heat race next up Mike would start fifth in the first heat along side of quick time Mark Keegan. Once again Mike laid down the throttle and picked up two spots running the very top of the track.
With the feature ready to go, so was Mike and he would begin his “first” race of 2007 in the sixth position. Just wanting to make sure that he gets as many laps as possible no real game plan was laid out for Mike other than to stay on track. That plan was cast aside a couple of laps in when the red number 3 fell a few spots back. Running up top a battle ensued with the 16 who was running the bottom; it would take some time but Mike finally prevailed. Next on the list to get by were the 7 and 8s and this was done in just enough time for the final caution of the night. Even with the valiant effort put forth by Mike he could only make it back up to sixth by the end of the race.
