10/22/12 - Team AJ scores first bandolero win!

A very nice day for late October greeted team AJ at the us international raceway in shawano wi. This would be the first time ever bandolero’s would take to the tight 1/5 mile track. Hot laps would quickly show that keeping a good line throught the track was key as each turn was slightly different. After some small adjustment’s following hot laps AJ would line up inside row 2 for the first heat. After what seemed to be a lengthend race then previously planned AJ was able to finish a solid 2nd place. New to team AJ was the format of the races as a second round of heat races would take place before the features. With a slight invert from the first heat AJ would line up outside row one. AJ was able to get a great jump on the pole sitter and took the lead coming out of turn 2 and never looked back. AJ would hold off the 2nd place driver for 8 laps and score her first ever bandolero’s win! AJ along with the team were ecstatic for the well deserved win and couldn’t wait to get on the track for the feature. AJ would once again line up outside front row. This time the pole sitter was able to hold off AJ thru turns 1 and 2 but AJ wouldn’t give up. AJ stayed right on the leaders bumper waiting to make a move but lap traffic made it difficult to make any challenge for the lead as she would have to accept a 2nd place finish. Team AJ was very proud of the day and look forward to returning to the premier facility this Saturday October 27th. Team AJ would like to thank all of there sponsors that have helped them get to this first bandolero win and the continued support from friends and family.
