A busy Memorial Day weekend was on tap for Paige Polyak both on and off the race track. Saturday, the team loaded up for the first of a 2 day show at Fremont Speedway. On a very wet and heavy track, a high pill draw landed Paige a 6th place starting spot in the 3rd heat. A misjudging of the gear on the heavy track, Paige fell back to an 8th place finish in the heat. After some adjustments and a gear change, she would start the B Main in the 9th and final starting spot. Making a charge from the time the green dropped to the checkered flew, Paige raced up to 3rd, earning an A Main transfer position. With starting 18th in the A Main, another charge was in store for the 27 entry, passing 5 cars in the first few laps, Paige was on the move again. Keeping an eye on the temp gauge due to some over heating concerns, Paige was sitting just outside the top 10 on the lap 13 caution. Entering the top 10 a few laps later, Polyak was running the cushion hard in 1 and 2. A last lap pass coming off turn 4, earned a 6th place finish and the hard charger award for the 2nd race in a row.
