June 16th: Friday, June 13th double features are now behind us. The first feature went as follows: we qualified in 13th place, started the race in 13th position and finished in 13th position, all on Friday the 13th. I'm really glad I'm not superstitious, with four 13's, wow. With only a few minutes between, the second feature went as follows: since there was a brief rain shower we were placed according to the points standing, 10th starting position, I chose to start in the back as the car had some starting issues and didn't want to hold anyone back, turned out to be a good choice as the shifter for 2nd & 3rd gears didn't want to shift, therefore I pulled into the pits for some help, as it is hard to really get good leverage being strapped in as safely as I am. We finished in 14th place. After both of these features I have moved from 10th in points to 9th.

June 3rd: The visit to 36th St Lounge was postponed due to rain and rescheduled for June 10th. Same time and location. Come out and say hi.

May 18th: Rose finished 10th in last nights 20 lap race. Lisa Crawford and Rose did meet in lap 11 in turns 3 and 4, the car was brought into the pits and the front bumper and hood had to be removed, Rose finished the race minus these parts, After Lisa and Rose meet Lisa was T-boned by another driver (Terry), this meeting did take both Lisa and Terry out of the balance of the race. Both Lisa and Terry were sore but not seriously injured. Wildrose Racing is wishing both teams the best as they work to get their cars back for this Saturdays 30 lap race, as well as their physical recovery.
