2014 - First Outing at the Duck

First time on the track this season - beautiful weather, finished, didn't break anything, wasn't dead last, and won our entrance fee back - couldn't ask for a better day.  Nothing like the sound of engines revving on a summer night!  Finished 11th of 14.  Didn't get to see the Enduro race as I had to get home for a midnight maintenance window (bummer part of being in IT), but it sounds like fun, and I think the garage is going to get another vehicle soon...

Racing At Crossville 2013-08-30

Love my new camera and zoom lens, but it certainly isn't a professional grade set up, and doesn't capture low light situations hardly at all. So, no photos of actual races as we move into autumn and start losing sunlight sooner - but still, some good stuff. Had a good time, even though K & D is 0 for 2 at this track. Two DNF's - bummer deal. But, still better than sitting at home and watching TV. Thanks for inviting us, Scott.

Racing at Duck River - 2013-06-15

Winner's Circle Dreaming... and counting our blessings.
As always, we had a wonderful time at The Duck chasing the checkered flag.   On a more somber note, keeping the Dearing family in our thoughts.  "If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives." Bishop Robert South (1634-1716) Hug your loved ones tonight and every night.  Life is short and unpredictable.  Many Blessings.

Racing at Duck River 2013-06-08

Finally, no rain! As always, wonderful experience at the Duck River Raceway! We dug up all the cameras (I hope to never mover 2200 miles again... will we ever find everything?!?), so hopefully we will get some videos posted by next race day. Son on the camcorder, me with my DSLR, and the GoPro mounted to the No. 20 car. Got some good stuff... now just need to find time to edit and post them.

Good to see all the kids out - and under control and not being a safety issue.  The next generation of drivers are already in the pits!

If you see a picture of your car on this blog, email me and let me know. Be happy to make a print from a high res version of these pictures.

Final Check-In With The Staff

Beats watching TV any day!

Race Results from April 13th

Missed racing last weekend.  Wish we could be at the track more; alas, while we'd like to run our lives around racing, that's not possible at the moment.  Still, it is the best thing since sliced bread when we can do it!
Race Results for April 13th - showing up is half the work - and all the fun!

Standings as of April 20 (for current standings, go here.

Apparently some of the earlier races did not really count points, so we don't have as many as we thought we did.  Still, the standings as of today still has us running with the pack.  They won't be running our class this weekend, though.  I imagine they are going to eventually cut our class since there aren't enough of us each week to make us profitable.  That would be truly sad as the track and facilities are looking awesome, and we are really enjoying running there.

BTW, you sharp looking modifieds... we might be chasing after you, next season... got something brewing in the garage...

In the Points!

Not bad for running with a faster class of cars. So far, since he was the only one running in his class, I guess that makes K&D Racing the points leader, LoL!
(Race Results Below.)

This is obviously where we are getting lapped by Mr. Williams, 
but hey, I actually got our car mostly in focus!

Duck River Action Shots

I haven't quite mastered the skill of shooting through chain link fencing yet, so those gray, out of focus lines in the pictures - fencing.
