Racing Update for the Weekend of August 14th

2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 13 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 21 | Top 10’s: 9

The weekend plans on Friday August 14th, 2009 began with plans to race River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, ND.  However, with a rain out we headed to the Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, ND.  Scott started 4th in the heat and on the started dropped back several spots.  After he completed a few laps he started moving up again and finished 3rd.  Then the rain came and the races we cancelled.

Jamestown SpeedwayOn Saturday August 15th, 2009, we headed back to Jamestown for some racing at the Jamestown Speedway.  At 4pm this was a pretty good down pour of rain but the track was able to work it in.  32 MW Mods showed up for the race.  There were 4 heats with 8 cars in each.  Scott Bintz start on pole in the 4th heat.  Scott got the earlier lead and kept it through three cautions.  Very tacky track in both the heat and feature.  On the starting lap of the feature, Scott got spun and into the mud he went in the center of the track.  On the restart he moved into 5th pretty quickly and after several laps into 4th.  The 3rd place runner dropped out so Scott got into third for the last few laps of the race.  On a restart with 4 to go, Scott got passed at the end by Austin Arneson (who was bad fast and had been sent tail end at the beginning of the race) and wound up finishing 4th.  John Corell led most of the race but bobbled on the last lap.  Dustin Strand won, followed by Corell and Austin Arneson.  On a side note, the heat winners got spots 1-4 in the feature.

On Sunday, we went to BRRP, Buffalo River Race Park in Glyndon, MN.  Scott started 4th in the 4th heat and moved up a car a time and got the lead.  He won the heat by about a straight away as the car was pretty hooked up.  In the feature, he started 7th.  On the first corner, Scott spun out and got sent tail end.  After that the Midwest Mods went 15 laps without a caution and Scott moved up from 20th to finish 10th.  Car worked well, but the spin out on the first lap didn’t help.  Travis Saurer won the feature.
