Friday went from 8th to 5th in heat, 7th to 2nd in "B" Main, and 17th to 8th in "A" Main. Saturday's feature was rained out and was run Sunday with Luke finishing fourth. Later on Sunday, Luke was unable to finish the main event and wound up 22nd.
Lucas picked up the win in the fourth race of the Arizona Mod Tour on Valentine's Day. A huge thank you to Mike Wedelstadt for letting me wheel his car, and congratulations to him on his 2nd place finish. Also, thanks to Beau Williams for all the help these two weeks!
From a lot of work on day one to winning the next race, Lucas made every feature of the Arizona Mod Tour without any provisionals and finished 3rd in overall points. We had a blast getting to meet new people. We can't thank Mike Wedelstadt enough for letting Luke be his hired gun and Beau Williams for all the help this week.
Luke kicked off the 2017 racing season at the Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, N.M., for the inaugural Short Track Shootout. Driving a new USRA Modified for Sherman Barnett, Luke ended the weekend with three top-10 finishes including a sixth on Friday. Next up is the King of America VII, March 23-25, at the Humboldt Speedway where the team will break out the #69 MBCustom for the first time this year.
Lucas picked up the win and the $3,000 top prize on Saturday during the Triple Crown NASCAR Modified event at the Cedar Lake Speedway.
Piloting Mike Wedelstadt's sharp-looking MB Customs modified, after two heat races on Friday, Luke was 32nd in points. On Saturday, he advanced to the main event in his non-qualifiers race, but a flat tire in the feature sidelined him with a 28th-place finish.
Lucas started and finished 2nd in his heat race, which put him 9th on the starting grid for the 40-lap "A" Main. After battling to get to the front, he finished a close 4th behind Ryan Gustin, Zack VanderBeek and Cade Dillard.
Lucas started 4th and finished 2nd in his heat race. In the main event, he drew the 6th starting spot but got caught up in a skirmish during the race and had to tag the rear of the field. He came back to finish 13th.
