The 9a x-cel 600 modified driven by Abbey Price on the 1/4 Mile Dirt Track had the team searching for better results. ” The X-cel 600 Modified Tour” invaded “The Point” this past Saturday night May 18. Abbey qualified for the Feature event. However the car had handling issues all night long. The handling problems showed in the final run down.
Chip and Abbey are still very confident their luck will change in the next few weeks. Shippensburg Speedway is the next event on Abbeys Schedule. The race is this Saturday May 25, 2013. This is a make up race, from a rained out Tour event earlier this Season. Speaking of rain outs Grandview Speedway cancelled Saturday night. Their are no “Geezer” reports from the wash out.

Last night at Penn Can Speedway Abbey joined 30 cars at the tack. In first the
heat race, Abbey missed the transfer to the feature by One spot. She had been
involved in two minor incidents during the heat race.
The next event was the Consolation race to fill the field of cars for the A-main. Abbey
was running in 4th
spot when two cars tangled. With nowhere to go she was caught up in the tangle. A
bent Pan hard bar shifted the rear in the 9a. A determinated Abbey ran back up to a
qualifying spot, to make it into the featureevent. There was not enough time to fix
the damage racer for the feature. A call was
made to save thedamaged racer and keep it one piece. Abbey finished in 16th place
with the wounded 9a x-cel 600 Modified.

The X-cel 600 Modified Tour rolled into Linda’s Speedway in Johnstown PA. Abbey and her Dad towed the 9a Abbinator special to run last night. Abbey was one of 40 cars that signed in for the tour race. Taken on Linda’s regulars is no easy task. In the heat race Abbey ran good but missed qualifying for the A -Main. The tight little bull ring provides lots of action on the clay. When the consi was called Abbey was ready to race.
In the Consi Abbey started out side of a transfer spot and would need to pass to make it into the feature. Abbey’s dad was ready to use a provisional in case Abbey failed. Abbey started 5th in the consi and ran down the 4th place car. Abbey would pass the car and make it to the A-main. Abbey was having a great night so far.
The feature was called out on the Track and Abbey was one of 24 cars on the track. The race ran down and Abbey was runing a good race till the last turn of the last lap. Chip informed me by phone that there was a tangle in front of Abbey. Abbey had no where to go and the 9a was launched in a series of barrel rolls. This is not a good way to finish the feature. The 9a racer took alot of damage and looked Ugly after the wreck. The Good is Abbey is OK !!!! The bad thing is the car is at the Chasis shop today needing major repairs before next Saturday. More news to follow later this week on the cars progress. On tap is the tour race Saturday May 11,2013 at Shippensburg.
