EVENTFUL WEEKEND INCLUDES CHECKERS FOR KAM FUELED RACING !!
We won our qualifying heat race which was a step in the right direction and thrilled the new fans we made earlier in the day… read on !
QUICK RESULTS 6-18-16:
We went back to a more comfortable set up for the early track conditions and took off from outside pole starting position in the heat and the #22 never looked back for the heat race win !! It was fun to see owners Alex and Steve during cool down lap, clapping and smiling. In the 25 lap main event the #22 Weso’s Italian Restaurant and Bar BRC Late Model started on the pole (first ever pole at Grandview) with 19 other hammer heads in tow. Led 4 laps before 7 time champ Chuck Schutz over took the lead and went on to win. We finished 11th in the feature. We’ve already started searching to help with side bite and grip during the slick feature track conditions.
First and foremost, let me start by thanking the dedicated and hardworking crew on the #22 KAM Fueled Racing team… Al Yusko, Bob Auch and JD Nathan, there are many others behind the scenes but every team needs a core like these guys. Al has been Mr. consistent through the years helping during weeknights and weekends, Bob has been hauling and maintaining regularly and JD helps as time permits while doing a fine juggling act with 2 very young beautiful children and his super-hot wife (HI Kendra!!). Oh, Kendra can JD help more often now?? LOL… Others include Kylie, Secret agent, Hunter, Alex, Matt, Steve, Ken, Dan, and competitors from the 46 and 72 teams that have been more than helpful numerous times without a hitch. A true team effort. The heat race win Saturday night was dedicated to Bob Auch for his years of help and expertise during my various racing stints, he is giving it a break for a while, thank you Bob, you know you are welcome to return ‘whenever you see fit.
A HUGE congrats to Chuck Schutz and his entire ‘’ONE’’ team on their BRC Late Model win Saturday night, as you know he and his crew have been instrumental in helping us all season and continue to show us what truly great sportsmanship is all about... A great bunch. Congrats to Jeff Strunk on his win in the 30 lap TP Trailers modified feature, his first of the season and congrats to Jordan Henn and Craig Whitmoyer in their 2nd and 3rd place finishes in the special Sportsman 40 lap race.
v A very special thanks to the owners and staff of Cooper Morgan’s Public House for hosting a wonderful open house from 1 til 4 Saturday where we had a great crowd of friends, fans, competitors, staff, photographers, patrons, car owners and crew as we enjoyed a day full of grilled foods, drink specials, #22 car on display and a prize wheel with tons of giveaways courtesy of Yuengling Brewery. A special thanks to Nicole and Devin who were instrumental in keeping foods, drinks and supplies flowing during the busy day and also Joe Adams for his lending of ‘’Grillzilla’’ the nicest barbeque grill on earth !! Thank you Bob and Al for hanging all day, moving the car to 2 different events, and crewing of course…THANK YOU !!
v Joe Adams did an impromptu Low Down and Dirty interview on the outside deck at Cooper Morgan’s where the entire Bartorillo family came up and said ‘’hello’’. Barkley the family dog even stole the spotlight as he wore his KAM Fueled Racing shirt to the event, LOL !!! Thanks Whippy, Meatwad and Eric from LD&D for attending also !
v Thanks to Wendy Wojnar for her help all day and to Missie Fegley for the treats all day too, they kept me going for sure !!
v Keith Gerhart was a trooper and had a ‘’guess where Geezer will finish’’ competition going on all day and had over 300 guesses… the winner received 2 tickets to a regular Saturday race and free parking for the season. Thank you Keith for having your Hosensack Poker Club on our car this season !! Great to see Peggy and your grandkids at the event too of course, the brownies were awesome !!
v The ‘’Meat-N-Greet’’ at the Grandview ticket window from 5 til 6 was huge success as we had the car on display, tons of giveaways like signed racing shields, autograph cards, Giorgio’s Pizza shirts, Yuengling shirts, can coozies, cupcakes and sunglasses and more !! Geezer also gave out 22 meatball sandwiches to make it an official ‘’Meat-N-Greet’’. Meatballs courtesy of Giorgio’s Pizza and subs of Exton, Pa. THANK YOU GRANT !! The entire team and owners were there to meet many new fans and answer questions about this new team. Again, the Low Down and Dirty crew where doing live interviews, thanks Whippy for the fun chat. Great crowd enjoyed the festivities for sure !!
v ‘’The Princess’’ stopped by and made an appearance !! First thing she said : ‘You need a haircut’ !! Hahahaha ,What a fun girl Jennifer is, she is now on my cover photo on face book, since I’ve lost touch of how to post pics on this Geezer Gazette, sorry Jenn !! Schedule me in for a cut and color please ? Maybe a mani-pedi ? HA !! NOT.
v Great to see so many folks Saturday throughout the day including some I don’t often see like Bonez and Shelby who made the trip out. Glad to also hear Sally, Jay, Buzzy, Zach and Ryan made an appearance Saturday night, their annual outing !! Karen and Wayne enjoyed the races after the earlier event at their place along with a few friends of theirs and thank you Jeff Ahlum for all the special announcements he made about our special day !!
