The weekend of June 4th, 2009 started with a trip up to the Geographical Center Speedway in Rugby, ND.  Scott started the heat in 4th and took the lead in about 2 laps and won the heat.  The track was a little sloppy with some tack.  In the feature, Scott started 10th.  Within a few laps Scott made it to 3rd.  A few more laps later and he got the lead.  With about 2 laps to go, there was a caution by a tail end car.  On the restart Scott kept the lead on the first lap, with one lap to go, coming out of corner two, the car push a bit and Scott lost the lead.  Jim Morlock won the Race and Scott Bintz finished second.  If you have been counting, that’s the 3rd time we have lost the lead in Rugby on a caution, with 2 laps to go.  We skipped Saturday and made it a movie night since the Jamestown Speedway was rained out.   On Sunday, at BRRP (Buffalo River Race Park) in Glyndon, MN, we drew 174 out of 200.  Wasnt looking the best for a good starting position.  Scott was in the 3rd Midwest Modified heat of the night in the 5th spot for the heat.  After a few laps, he moved in the 3rd and finished the race there.  It was a tracky track and pretty much follow the leader.  For the feature, Scott started 4th.    The track was a little tacky but turned to dry slick pretty fast.  There were a few caution the first couple of laps.  After the race got going, Scott took the lead on about lap 7.  With 3 laps to go, there was a caution.  On the restart, Scott kept the lead.  Yes, can you guess it? with 1 lap to go, Scott was running the high side most of the race, got passed by Travis Saurer on a semi clean slide job from the bottom of the track and Scott finished the race 2nd.  However, two 2nd place feature finishes in a weekend of pretty good for 1s Scott Bintz Racing Team.   The last time we did got two 2nd place finishes this season, we won the next race.  Stay tuned.  View the Complete Scott Bintz Racing 2009 Results.
