Mid-May update on our Family of Racers

While our main team recovers from a tough start to the season we and our teammates have hardly sat still.

Jody London has his SST Modified up for sale and continues doing some basic maintenance “just in case” he gets the itch and the support to go back to mod racing. In the mean time he has bought two karts and is racing in the Upstate NY area with drivers Cassie McGrath, daughter of modified driver Tom McGrath and co-driver Andy Jankowiak, both drivers are out of the Greater Buffalo area. Cassie made her first outing at Paradise Speedway (Geneva) and found that karting on dirt was a bit different than 4 cylinder cars on asphalt. The kart was not quite set up properly yet Cassie hung in there and battled hard and is looking forward to better results come June. Andy took the #89 kart out the following week and with an updated set-up managed a fine 2nd place finish. As Jody’s drivers will be busy for the next few weeks in their personal race machines, Jody will be gracing local speedways lending a hand to his many friends.

Spencer Speedway hosted their first of 2 practice sessions and we had the repaired #05 back for some testing which showed improvements and gave us additional ideas to try out at the next practice. After the session, our team decided it would be best to skip the upcoming Shangri-La 2 RoC race in favor of better preparation for the Oswego RoC race in 3 weeks.

Team crew member John Avery took his #11 SST Modified out for his first laps ever at the newly repaved speedway. John said that the experience was quite a bit different than his drag racing experience and he’s looking forward to laying down more laps at the next test session.

Super Six driver and crewman Ryan Hillegeer was also at practice and left with a challenge to solve an overheating problem but eager for the season to begin.

Big brother Kris Hillegeer is finishing up his Super Stock and should be shaking things down at the next test session as well. And big news, Kris’ son Tucker debuted his driving prowess at the Sodus Microd Club where he showed everyone that competition means a lot to him. The fleet of #18 blue race cars continues to grow.

Bob Tryka has returned to our acing family and will crew occasionally on Friday nights at Spencer while focusing most of his attention on completing his #33 Super Stock which we hope to have finished by late June.

So whether you enjoy Microds, Karts, Super Sixes, Super Stocks, SST Modifieds or RoC Modifieds, keep an eye out for the EpicVentures logo on the track and please stop by and say hello after the races.
