Sac Mile Report: On July 28th, the Weirbach Racing team traveled out to Sacremento California for the historic Mile! Showing up at my 2nd mile ever, I was still in need of figuring out everything that needs to be done to come out victorious. We started out the day qualifying 12th which would give me the last spot on the front row. In the heat race I immediately ran into the same problems with drafting that I also had in Springfield. Struggling through the heat I finished 6th which would still be a direct transfer, but I knew I needed to figure it out coming main event time. I started the main event on the very inside of the second row. Out of the first turn I sat around 12th and finally figured out what I missing this whole time with drafting. I began picking off positions and worked my way up to 6th but ran out of time and finished there. I'm not completely satisfied with the result but I'm very satisfied with what I learned and am now very excited for the next mile. We headed to Castle Rock for some short track racing mid week then the Grand National TT August 4th and I'm very excited for some TT racing! It was great to meet some of our west coast sponsors in person.

After this weekend we are in second place 11 points behind the series leader.

Big Thanks to all our awesome sponsors who continue to make my dream as a racer come true day after day!
