James Hylton drove a camero # 0 named the love machine at Daytona Arca race 1975. Want to find out what happened to the car. I built the rearend in the car and signed under the rear fender. My name is Hannah but know around the track as Peaches. Followed Junior & Cale when sponsor was Holly Farms. Started a family 1977, stopped traveling the circuit. Senior Citizen now & planning to go to races in TN, AL, GA. Hope to find some of my old friends
Well, another ARCA race is over at Pocono. For those who watched it know our results, for those who didn't that is why I am here. Lol! We battled a tight race car during our only practice session, driver almost "lost" the car a few times out of turn 3. We added spring rubbers, changed springs, car was better, but we were not totally happy, toward the end of practice the motor sounded sluggish, and at times felt like it was running out of gas and retiring, so we pulled the spark plugs, and replaced, changed a few plug wires, hoping the best during qualifying. During qualifying motor still lacking power we qualified 28th, not what we expected, but in the race. Feeling confident as to what the issue was, during final adjustments the carburetor was bled and float adjusted, again confident we fixed the issue and were optimistic. Race began, once again for a lap car comfortable, motor felt good, but not too long we were Black Flagged to pull the car in. We checked all electrical connections, and plug wires, all looked good and sent car back out again. Car still lacking horsepower we were asked by ARCA to end our day reliquising us to a 31st place finish. Not the day/finish we wanted/expected, but every one is safe and car can be fixed. This finish dropped Brad from 8th in the points standings to 10th. So next week is Michigan and hope for a better finish.
Well, Mother Nature was not very cooperative, we had to work within the breaks in the weather. Thursday was "tech day", no on track, must say, went alot smoother than the nightmare in Daytona as we brought the same car, "Martina". Friday May 5th was pretty much a washout, no Qualifying, No race, as scheduled, due to time restraints and weather. On this day all we were able to squeeze in was a 30 min practice around 11:30AM to which Brad stated the car felt good, but for some reason when attempting to draft the car would not "suck up", but with the limited practice we did not have enough time to work on/ and test further, running solo Brad was running a respectable 180.2MPH. The scheduled Friday race was rescheduled for Saturday at 5PM. With Quailifying cancelled the 48 team was to start in the 13th position, but due to not making tech line in time Friday were regulated to the rear of the field. We had another soild Super Speedway race and remained on the lead lap until about 10 laps remaining as we lost out "draft" partner due mechanical issue with that car and as well all know groups are faster than an individual car at tracks such as these. All in all we were happy with the outcome, car and driver home safe and anoth 17th place 2017 Super Speedway finish leaving Brad 8th in the ARCA racing points. Well time to get ready for Toldeo next on May 21st.
