01/02/12 - Gleason Weekends Race Results

Well the first two race events/weekend in Gleason, WI are in the books.  AJ raced a total of 17 classes over the weekend making all 17 finals she attempted and logging over 100 laps of racing.  On Saturday, “AJ” competed in 8 classes making the finals in all 8.  She was fortunate enough to come home with 3 final wins (Stock Kitty Cat / Vintage Kitty Cat / Stock 120) and with a total of 5 podiums for the day.  Also on Saturday AJ competed in Sprint 120 and Champ 120 for the first time in her career.  Sunday AJ got to the track with the thoughts she would be in only 7 classes.  But as they day progressed she found herself in a “personal best” 9 classes.  The results from Sunday were not much different from Saturday!  She again came home with 3 final wins again in  (Stock Kitty Cat / Vintage Kitty Cat / Stock 120) with a total of 4 podium finishes and again competing in Sprint 120, Champ 120 and another new class 120 Improved Lemans.  AJ wants to “Thank” the team that helped out over the weekend at the track (Pat Strachota, Alex VanNatta and Garret Strachota).  She also wants to  “Thank” the guys back at the shop (Tim Yarie and Greg Oelke) for helping get the 2011/12 season off in the right direction.  Lastly, AJ want to give a big “Thanks” to Uncle Scott for the help and for being a EMT this weekend at the races for both WKSRA and WKCR. 

The “Lap of Strength” was a big sucess on both Saturday-WKCR and Sunday-WKSRA.  AJ had the priviledge to lead the field of over a dozen sleds both days in a special parade lap to honor fellow ice oval snowmobile racer Curtis Boivin #19b.  AJ said “It feels really good to help raise money for Curtis and his famiy.”

AJ’s week continues to be busy for her!  On Wednesday she is celebrating her 7th birthday with friends and family.  Then Thursday its back to work as she has a test plan for her champ 120 and Sprint 120 in a continued effort for some more seat time. Friday we will be heading to Amherst for the Portage County Ice Wars.
