Mother Nature wins again this weekend. Races at CMS for 5/16/15 was rained out. Next race is next weekend again at CMS for a special memorial weekend show for $1500 to win. I had a little time to kill so I put together a video from our 5/2/15 win using both the front and rear camera view.
We raced at I-35 speedway in Winston MO for the first time this year last night. Car felt fast in the hot laps and then it fell off for the heat and feature. I finished 4th in the heat and third in the feature. For the next two weekend we are returning to Central Missouri Speedway in Warrensburg MO. Here is a short video of the heat race.
Mark Billings racing picks up first win of the year at Central Missouri Speedway
CMS Press Release. “Tony Layne looked strong all night long and captured the lone Lightning Sprint heat ahead of Mark Billings, Beau Heavelow, and Bobby Layne as these four drivers then made up the first two rows of the 15-lap main event.
Billings and Layne quickly shot to the front to set a blistering race pace as the lightning sprints aptly lived up to their name with a lightning quick main event. Billings ran solidly up front but Layne never was too far behind to try and challenge for the lead. Just as the two leaders ran close, so too did Heavelow and Layne in third and fourth.
On several occasions Layne drew close to Billings as the pair ran as low as they could on the track stalking the corners like a bottom-dwelling catfish. Billings turned back all challenges on this night as Layne settled for second behind Billings who took the win. Heavelow ran third with Layne in fourth and Paden Moreland finished out the top five.”
Haven’t raced for two weeks due to work and this last weekends wet weather. This gave me time to switch some things around on the car to hopefully give me better drive off the corner. Next event will be at I-35 speedway on April 25th then the following weekend we will be doing a double header. May 1st at Humboldt KS and then May 2nd Central Missouri Speedway in Warrensburg.
We raced at CMS last weekend. We won our heat from the outside poll. Feature grid was lined up heads up which meant I started on the outside poll. Track was terribly rutted up and after taken several bad hops I decided to pull off the track rather than destroying my car. We are taken this weekend off. Next race is April 18th in Winston MO
New motor is in the car and seems to be strong. We were planning on going to CMS this weekend to do some testing but unfortunately the weather is not cooperating and it was canceled. We will be at CMS for there season opening event next weekend April 4th.

Racing season is beginning to ramp up, our schedule has been posted but may change slightly through out the year depending on time. We will be very busy in the coming weeks preparing the car. We hope to get out and do some test and tune the end of this month at Central Missouri Speedway. This will depend on if I can get the car ready in time.
Highlights for this year are several big races. The first will be at Central Missouri Speedway over memorial weekend for a $1500 to win race. Midwest Lightning Sprints will have several $500 to win and concludes with $1000 to win race to close out the year. On Aug. 1st ILSS will be hosting a $2000 to win race in IL. Hopefully we will have a better year with reliability this coming season.
Please stop by our pits after the race and say hello. We will have hero cards and temporary tattoos for the kids.
