The 2016 season is now underway! We began the season with the United Racing Club on April 10th at Bridgeport Speedway. Davey started 2nd and finished 4th in the heat race. An early race spin caused Davey to go to the rear early, but he was able to make his way to the 4th spot and earn his way into the feature event.
The qualifying run lined Davey up 12th on the starting grid for the feature event. On lap 11, Davey was in the 7th spot and closing in on the top 5 when confrontation with a lapped car caused the 747 to spin and stop on the track. Davey was forced to the rear of the field. Davey worked his way back to the 7th position just in time for the checkered flag to wave. Davie Franek was the event winner.
Our next scheduled race is May 7th at one of our favorite track's, Delaware International Speedway. The team will most likely make another appearance before then, but as of now when and where is still to be determined.
Our friends at Bob Hilbert are working on our 2016 apparel and we will share it with you all as soon as it is available! Thank you for your continued support of Davey Sammons and the Pioneer Pole Buildings John Chemidlin No. 747.
