“BAD LUCK AT SSP”
Saturday night the “NINE” car traveled to Susquehanna Speedway Park for the annual “Late Model Showdown”. An unlucky draw had the “NINE” starting next to last in the heat. Driver Ron Kline worked his way to finish 5th in the qualifier. With a straight up starting position it had the “NINE” starting 15TH. Ron worked his way up to 10th when an overzealous driver got into the left rear quarter panel spinning Ron out and sending him to the rear of the field. In a very few laps Ron took both the high and low lines to pass cars to get back to the 9th position. Ron was attempting to pass 2 cars running nearly side by side when he went 3 wide entering turn 1. The “NINE” hit a rut bottoming out the front bumper causing the car to lose the ability to counter steer and Ron had to drop out on the 42nd lap. The “NINE” was scored 14th in the final run down.
We have 1 race left, the Grove on 10/17. That will wrap up a successful 2014 season for Leinbach Motorsports. It seems like only yesterday the first Leinbach car took the track at Circle M Speedway in May of 1955. Sixty seasons have now past, while the founders are long gone; our love for the sport has not diminished. Our mission remains the same, to provide fast and competitive race cars wherever the “NINE” races. We could not do that without our hard working and loyal crew and the support of their families. WE THANK YOU!
