Chris Ennis Racing Newsletter (September 21, 2013) – USAC Western Midgets Race through Bakersfield

 

On Saturday the EIGHTsix Motorsports team headed to a surprisingly cool Bakersfield Speedway with the USAC Western Midget Series. This would be a ‘home-city’ race for driver Chris Ennis and the first in the family-owned #86 Spike/Chevy Midget.

 

A hooked-up fast and heavy track would produce some fast qualifying laps early in the night as the racing surface continued to develop. After a good first lap Ennis was able to improve his time the second time around with a 7th place qualifying position. His qualifying efforts would land him the outside pole position starting spot for the first heat race of the night.

 

Coming out of turn four Chris laid into the ‘loudpedal’ of the #86 Bob Wirth Chevy powerplant and into the lead. At the end of the first lap Chris already had a comfortable lead on the rest of the field. After 10 strong laps and few wheelies for the fans Ennis would bring the car across the line in 1st leading the heat from wire-to-wire.

 

Because of his earlier qualifying position Chris would start inside of the fourth row for the main event battle at Bakersfield. On the first start Chris quickly moved to the high-side cushion to make his way around a few cars on the opening lap. After a few yellow flags the race returned to green flag action. With a two-lane track and a large cushion cars would very fast and even throughout the main event. Chris would battle for most of the main event swapping positions and making attempts at improving his position throughout the race. After catching the cushion a little too hard in turn 1 Chris would have to save the car and correct losing two positions. Once settled back in the seat Chris went to work quickly gaining one position back, but ultimately brought the car across the line in 7th. A good run for the evening against a strong field of cars.

 

Chris would like to extend a special thanks to Ty Hindman & Ricky Shelton for coming out this weekend to turn wrenches and keep the car moving forward

 

Chris would also like to thank all his 2013 Sponsors; Diamond Motorsports Auto Sales, Sidewaze Designs, Hooker Harness, R2C Competition Filters, Ano-Tech Anodize Specialists, Cap's Brite Hot Coatings, Awesome Racewear, King Racing Products, My Lucas Oil, Bell Helmets USA, Spy Optics, West Evans Motorsports, Slick Products, RB Components, Epic Cameras, Shell Shock Designs, & The Kickstand Dave Foundation.

Top 10 finish in the new EIGHTsix Motorsports midget debut!

 

The EIGHTsix Motorsports midget made its USAC debut at Petaluma Speedway with Chris behind the wheel this past Saturday. The team got the car put together the week before with help from David Prickett at Western Performance in Clovis, California.

 

The day started early leaving town 6am to make the 7 hour tow to Petaluma Speedway in northern California. Saturday was a USAC vs. BCRA Midget Series Clash race. This was the second time Chris had visited Petaluma Speedway, but the first in the new EIGHTsix Motorsports Spike/Chevy Midget.

 

On his first qualifying attempt the muffler would come loose, eventually falling off in turn 2 cutting his session short. After returning to the pits the crew quickly got the muffler back on and fixed Chris would tag the back of the session to get a single lap attempt at a qualifying time, bringing the car in at 10th.

 

The #86 would start on the outside of the second row in the 4th position of the first heat race. On the start Chris would quickly move into third before a red flag just a few laps into the race. On the restart Chris was able to move himself in the second position in just a few laps. With a narrow race track early in the night passing was difficult. On lap 8 Chris would make an attempt for the lead with a drag race to the corner, but would ultimately have to settle for 2nd.

 

For the 24 car A-Main Event Feature Chris would start on the outside of the 4 row in the 8th position. With a hooked up fast track racing was close, quick, and intense throughout the race. The new Chevrolet powerplant in the Spike midget was making great power all night, sometimes lifting the front wheels off the ground on the hooked up Petaluma soil. After close battles with several cars throughout the race Chris would take the checkered flag in the 6th spot. Chris and the team were more than happy with the way the new midget performed all night and are excited to get it out on the track again soon!

 

The team would like to extend a special thanks to Pete Davis from Hot Heads Engine Heaters! Pete was kind enough to get our heater hooked up properly at the track & got the car a muffler that was able to pass the speedway noise restrictions.

Chris wins heat race and finishes in the top 10 at Kings Speedway


On a 112 degree Saturday the team headed to Kings Speedway in Hanford for the nights races with the USAC West Coast 360 Series. After a two month break from racing to focus on school Chris was excited to get behind the wheel again.

After the first qualifying attempt was called off for a transponder issue Chris headed back out onto the track and qualified the #86 in 7th of 20 entries. After the invert Chris would start in the fourth position of the first heat race. After taking the green Chris quickly moved his way into the second position. He quickly began running down the leader. After a 3 wide battle out of turn 2 he would take the lead down the back straight and all the way to the checkered flag for the win.

In the main event the track was hooked up with grip low in turns 1 & 2 but dry-slick down in turns 3 & 4. With only one yellow on lap 6 the race ran with only one car dropping out. After battling through lapped traffic and swapping positions with various drivers Chris would take the checkered in the 6th position for the night.
