June 16th Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 headed to Chico CA for the Tarter
Memorial 410 show. Andy was 6th quick, went from 2nd to 4th in his heat race
and would start 9th in the main event. In the main event Andy maintained in the
8th position for the first 8-9 laps but unfortunately missed his line, jumped
the cushion and spun to a stop. At that point Andy tagged the rear of the field
and worked himself back to 10th. Frustrated with another off night with the 410
car the team made the decision to swap cars for Saturdays King of the West race
in Petaluma CA. The crew took the 360 out of the 360 car, took the 410 out of
the 410 car then put the 410 in the 360 car, during this process the crew found
a broken valve spring during the motor maintenance which also explained why the
motor did not seem to have the get up and go Andy needed. By 11am Saturday
morning the crew was ready to hit the road for Petaluma.
June 17th the gang headed to Petaluma to run a NARC-KOW 410 show. Andy was 8th
quick, ran 2nd in his heat race and went from 6th to 6th in the dash where he
would start the main event. The track was not a normal Petaluma hook em up
track and Andy was looking for anything to move up in position at one point he
was up to 3rd but unfortunately the last 15 laps were a struggle for Andy, he
seemed to make the right move 1 or 2 laps to early or to late and it resulted in
him falling back to the 6th position, basically Andy ran 46 laps and never
changed positions! and was jokingly given the "non-charger award".
there are no races on Friday June 23rd and on Saturday June 24th Andy will be in
Calistoga CA for a SCCT $10,500.00 to win NASCAR weekend race driving the Family
owned #92 360. And on Sunday June 25th Andy will again be in the Family owned
#92 360 in Petaluma CA for the 1st ever Pit Stop USA 360 Shootout Fair race.
Thanks to all the
crew and extra help this weekend to get the cars switched out and ready for
Petaluma, it was hot and the guys worked hard.
