With perfect weather, a perfect pit crew and perfect attitudes Team SAVE THE TATA's couldn't have asked for a better time raising money for a good cause! Mother and Daughter rival drivers were pumped and the cars were full with motivated navigators and back seat riders! Our cars 1395 and 1396 started in 8th and 9th place and were both going strong off the start! With 28 mile loops and lots of rugged terrain, 1396 and 1395 gave it their all! Both mother and daughter team were neck and neck up through ant hill but a few miles later 1396, driven by Sandy Chase, caught some clean air and passed our 1395 car, driven by Kari Richey, who got stuck in the dust!
Throughout the race both cars gained momentum and kept passing other 1350 class cars, until 1395 broke a heim on lap 3 and was sadly taken out of the race! But thankfully everyone was safe and still in good spirits and with the help of the Missing Lenk team they were pulled to safety off the race course and with enough time to cheer on our other race car!!!
By lap 3 the 1396 car was continually gaining and when Sandy learned that she was steadily catching the 1st place car, she saw the checkers and really started racing! She stepped on that gas and caught the lead car by lap 4 and finished with a strong 1st place approx 1 minute ahead of the 2nd place team! WAY TO GO SANDY CHASE, ALICIA LIEVENSE, DAWN BEAUCHAMP, and KIM for your 1st place win! and WAY TO GO to KARI RICHEY, ANDREA CHASE, MINDY BUYER, and CASSIE JANOSIK for being amazing competitors with great attitudes!
CHEERS! to our CHASE MOTORSPORTS TEAM, and CHEERS to BREAST CANCER AWARENSS!!! We are sure to double podium next year!
