The Team

Friday June 16th -
Mayhew rides out the Storm

Friday June 16th Cobourg’s Stormin Norman Mayhew took to the track for Kawaratha Speedways spring sizzler.  Mayhew driving the #60 / Amara Dodge Intrepid started the night off by using his heat race to try to find a set-up for the 100 lap feature and develop a strategy for a full race fuel run.  After the heat races the #60 team made some chassis and tire adjustments and with the advice and help of Kenyon Race Products and Mowat Race Cars, the team took the green flag starting in the 26th spot.

Once under way, Mayhew started to gradually work his way up positions on the track, moving up to 18th by the first caution on lap 7.  After a few laps back under green the caution flag was waved again. Mayhew used the opportunity to pit and have the hood removed, allowing more air to the motor and brakes, which had started to heat due to debris on the nose of the car. Rejoining the race in 22nd and still on the lead lap, the # 60 car had moved up to 17th before another caution came out on lap 17.  All tolled, by lap 30 the cars had actually gone around 75 times under caution.  This caused a number of cars to pit for fuel and some, deciding to risk it, ran out of gas before the half way point of the race.  Having planned for such a scenario, the #60 car was able to stay on track, avoiding all major accidents and running in the top 15 with a 12th place finish.

After the race the #60 team was happy to have finished the race relatively unscathed. 
“I’m happy its over and the car’s in one piece”, Mayhew said.  “The car ran well and I think for our first long race ever my team did a great job”, he added.
