Say What!

  • Davie Franek)No one has been hotter in the 2016 Untied Racing Club season than Davie "No Panic" Franek. On Saturday night at the annual running of the Jack Gunn Memorial race, Franek and crew looked to continue that hot streak. Franek and the Franek Auto Sales, Allamuchy Garage 28f timed 3rd out of 28 cars in the pit area. Franek then went on to finish 2nd in his heat race and was running inside the top 3 when he tangled with a lapped car on the 6th lap of the main event. Franek then climbed within the top 10, but a late race call sent him to a 13th place finish as the race was called on the 18th lap due to rain. Franek will now take his points lead south to the first state next weekend to the Delaware International Raceway.

As a result of his 4th place finish, Michael started the 30 lap Jack Gunn Memorial in the 12th position. Michael who quickly advanced into the top 10 before the half was point of the race, saw his night take a turn when on lap 17 coming off of turn 4 had a right rear let go. Michael's crew quickly put a new right rear on, but unfortunately the skies opened up on lap 18th handing Michael a 21st place in the A-Main. Michael will now head to his home state and the Delaware International Raceway on Saturday night May 7th.

Stillwaggon gained valuable points on both Curt Michael (21st) and Davie Franek (13th) and continues to look like a true contender for the 2016 URC championship. Stillwaggon who started 3rd quickly stayed within the top 4 and striking distance of the top 3 cars all race. A lap 17 restart for relegated Stillwaggon to the 5th place finished as a slight slip up let Ryan Kissinger slide by and into the 4th position.
