Sunday's finish at Eagles Canyon -

Postby Michael Schneider » Mon Apr 28, 2008 10:14 am

Another epic battle! This will be one of those videos that 15 - 20 years from now when the boys are racing NASCAR you can replay and say "see, they were even doing it back then at 8yrs old"

NTK drivers Chris, Michael, Nathan and Kensley lined up for Sunday's 20 minute main event. I've got to hand it to Kensley for getting back out on the track and racing after a tough incident the day before bent the frame. Their team worked the rest of the day and night getting the kart in racing condition but, as a result, Kensley didn't have much time on the track prior to Sunday's main.

Nathan got an unfortuate slow start leaving Mike and Chris to battle it out for the lead.

All three drivers turned in 2 minute 22 second lap times on the 2.5 mile road course.

With all of the parents observing what we could of the track from the flag tower, none of us knew who would be in the lead as the boys emerged from the lower back side of the track and into view.

8 laps and 16 lead changes between Mike and Chris back and forth - neither with a clear advantage.

On the white flag lap it was Chris in the lead as the 2 emerged into view.
Coming around the final corner, Mike carried just a bit more speed, drafted Chris and just pulled ahead of him at the stripe for the win. Had the finish line been either further up or down the straight, there would be no telling who would have won.

A great race with lots of speed, safe passing, and close finishes both days. What more could you ask for, except more!!!

I'd encourage all the minimax and even gazelle drivers to give Road Racing a try. Eagles Canyon was a blast!
