Not to take anything away from Reese Williams first victory of the season but the biggest story of the night was the absence of last season’s GP champion and this seasons undefeated points leader, Ignacio Martinez. He was nowhere to be found and the field of racer’s spirits were all flying high at the thought of a shot at winning this month’s GP. The racing was extreamly fast all evening. The track record was broken in the quals twice and then rebroken in the main event by Reese Williams. Reese blew away the field in what was the single fastest 16 lap race average for a GP to date!! The new track record is now 26.676…….and this was all done in reverse direction on the track!! Ted Smith finished second and took over the season’s points lead. Sean Gossett had a very strong showing and made the podium for the first time this season taking home 3rd place honors. Ignacio is still undefeated but this may put some wind in the sails of many. We will see you all next month!

Edward Galvis raced hard and held of Chris McNelis and Darrin Wicken to win the B-Main.

The spring monsoon outside could not put out the fire that was on the track inside the center in the Teen Main Event. Tucker Klein and Jason Gernert were lighting up the scoreboards with blazing fast lap times. Tucker once again held off Jason to take home first place honors and take home the top hardware for the second event in a row.

Here we are in the second round of the Junior league series and what a series it is shaping up to be. A great turnout for this round with some new faces on the track. The Wolff sisters were challenged again by a new comer in Brody Magerkurth and almost had him for the win but Alex got stuck behind a lapped car and ended up at the back of the pack. Great racing by all of our Jr’s and congratulations to Brody Magerkurth on his win.

It sounds like a broken record…yes we know! Ignacio Martinez wins yet again. This time he barely missed setting the track record in the 1st qualifier by .002 of a second. Let us remind you that this was in REVERSE direction on the track!

He never looked back in the Main Event and blew away newcomer, Steven Palmisano, and the Wiley veteran, Ted Smith, who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Who is going to be the one that steps up and beats him? Again, after the race there were some more whispers and rumbles of a bounty for the first person to beat the champ! Is it going to be you?

There was a HUGE sense of excitement in the air before the GP started. Last years undefeated GP overall champion and this seasons points leader, Ignacio Martinez, was not in the building! Everyone thought this was THEIR shot at victory. Ignacio’s 6 consecutive win streak looked like it was going to come to an end. The first round of qualifiers went off with everyone posting solid times and looking like they had a legit shot. Then, as quickly as the excitement built, it was gone with the swing of the pit door and the arrival of Ignacio! He then lit up the second qualifier to earn pole position and then once again, he blew away the field in the main event! Wiley veterans, Ted Smith and Timmy Palmer, rounded out the top 3 podium spots. There is are talks of a secret bounty out on Ignacio and the #1 spot on the podium next month. Can he continue his winning ways with everyone gunning for him event after event? Come race the next GP in REVERSE direction and see where you stack up against Austin’s best.

This month’s GP was full of new-comers. Lots of good racing took place in the B-Main from top to bottom but nobody could touch last seasons most improved racer, Dale Daugherty. He blew past the pole getter early on in the race and did not look back and took home the #1 hardware. Dale was followed by Bryce Widdison and Kyle Moss who took 2nd and 3rd honors respectively.

The first GP of the new season picked up right where last season left off. Ignacio Martinez continued his unbeaten streak and looked as impressive as ever. He failed to grab the pole position in the quals but that did not stop him from capitalizing on a early mash up in the MAIN EVENT to blow away the field once again. Last season’s most improved racer, Dale Daugherty, ran a very fast and clean race which resulted in his best finish in a GP to date…2nd place. There was a battle for 3rd place between three different racers right up to the final lap. Adam Fujawa held on and took home the 3rd place hardware. The remainder of the season will be race in reverse direction. Is there anyone out there that can beat Ignacio Martinez?!?

The B FINAL was filled with new comers from top to bottom. That did not mean there was any shortage of quality racing. Dylan Lee bested a good field to take home 1st place. Ryan Keys ran a solid race to take home 2nd. On his very first visit to any K1 Speed, Timothy Bolding finished in 3rd place and made a statement for GP’s to come. Remember, it is a long season and this was only the first event of the season. We will see you the first Sunday of every month going forward!
