Pair of Solid Finishes in USMTS Hunt

The Ramirez Motorsports team planned on competing five times last week, however three of those shows were nixed by rain. The Hunt for the USMTS Championship took them to Marshalltown Speedway in Iowa last Wednesday. Johnny passed one car to finish 5th in his heat. He accumulated the 13th most passing points, so he rolled from the inside of the 7th row for the start of the feature. The #1st raced all the way up to a 7th place finish.

Thursday and Friday's programs were washed out as well as Sunday's scheduled finale. They went to the famed Deer Creek Speedway for the Saturday night show in the swing. Johnny had a good draw started the heat from the outside pole and won. In the redraw Johnny drew the pole and closed with a good 3rd place run.

The team is taking a couple weeks off from USMTS activity until the schedule resumes back at Deer Creek Speedway for the 16th Annual Fall Jamboree.
