Breakdowns, wrecks or a car that was out to lunch, made for alot of fustration. Each week Abbey and Chip would go back into the garage make changes and get back to the races. The 2012 rookie champion carried her head high every night. With a strong showing a few weeks back they were waiting to go racing Saturday and towed North for the “King of the Can”. This is the Season ending race weekend at the Susquehana Oval. Abbey would not be denied this weekend and parked her car in Victory Lane.

Abbey and Chip towed the 9a David Ragan Ford, Patio’s 4you, 600 X-cel Tour Dirt Modified, to Linda’s Speedway Saturday night to race on the action packed race track. Abbey timed 23 rd out of 35 cars.
Abbey started in her heat race and was hungry for a transfer spot into the main event. Luck was against Abbey in the heat. She was involved in a crash that bent the back end up and destroyed the rear bumper. From there the 9a team had its work cut out for them. They had to make sure the car could be repaired for the Consi and the Feature. Abbey was able to run the feature a 50 lapper for the X-cel chassis 600 Modified Tour race. Abbey would finish in 12th place for the night. A good finish just outside the top 10. It was an interesting night for the race team and Abbey is already to run this race next year at Linda’s.

Abbey compete last week at the I-88 Speedway in Upstate New York. A large field of cars were on hand at the local dirt track in Afton. Abbey was racing the 9a X-cel Chassis Dirt Modified in the Tour Race. The car was fast in the feature Abbey was able to get the car up to 11 position when the weather changed.
This effects the way a car handles in the turns. A light steady mist added mositure to the surface. This caused fast cars to go backwords. Other cars that had handling problems improved in performance. At the end of the night Abbey slipped back towards the rear of the Field. Speaking to Abbeys Dad the next day. They had found a regulator problem and a shock failure. Considering all things the 9a team was all smiles .
Next up is the final race of 2013 !! Abbey will be competing at the Linda’s Speedway in the 50 lap main event. Please come out and support the 9a and all the other racers

In other news a round of applause goes to Joe “The Geezer” Fanelli on his fine season at Grandview !!! Nascar sanction Sportsman Points race came to an end. The Geezer finished in 15th spot at the tough 1/3 mile high bank clay speedway.
The 9a race team of Abbey Price is towing North to the Penn Can Speedway. Finding a shock problem the other night, the team realized why the car was not handling properly last weekend. Chip Price fixed the problem Wednesday night and re-scaled the car.
“Scaling” the car is important in the way a car handles. to much weight on one side and the car will want to spin into the infield. To much weight on the other side, will cause the car to hit the outside wall. It is a fine balancing act to find the right set up.
Racing tonight is a Tour Event, the end of the season is near. Come out and Cheer Abbey on !!! On tap are the Dirt Modifieds, X-Cel 600′s Sportsman and more !

Some changes were made before the feature to the car. Abbey and her dad Chip were confident the 9a would be fast in the feature. At the drop of the green Abbey was steering a race car that was getting harder to drive as the laps wore on. A wise decision by Abbey was to pull in before wrecking the car, and taking others out! The track had change and the set was missed. However Abbey Price and the 9a race team is going to race this Labor Day Weekend with the X-cel 600 Modifieds. More news later in the Week.
The 9a X-cel 600 Modified team headed off to Linda’s Speedway Friday night.
