We got rained out friday and were hoping to race Jamestown Speedway on Saturday.  But, mother nature changed our plans and we (shawn, chase and scott) head to North Central Speedway in Brainerd, MN on Saturday May 8th, 2010.

Scott started outside pole in the 5th heat for the Midwest Mods.  45 of them showed up to race.  Scott was racing for 1st when the leader got sideways putting an end to Scott’s racing as he picked up a right front flat in the heat.  Scott started 14th in the 1st b-main..   Scott was really hooked up and worked his way up, a car at a time, to a 2nd place finish.  The 2nd place finish  gave us a 19th starting spot in the feature.  After a first lap caution, the race went green to checker.  Scott was again pretty hooked up and finished 10th.  #20G, Tom Gill took the win.  Scott passed 21 cars for the night, which just might be a career high.

On Sunday, we went to Buffalo River Race Park in Glydon, MN.   With the help of Scot Sloan (the sunday night grinder), we got the car set up and started 4th in the 2nd heat.  It was a 1 caution heat and Scott worked his way up to 2nd and started to reel in the leader when we ran out of laps.  For the feature, we started 7th.  Scott quickly began moving up a car at a time and after about 8-9 laps was in 2nd and begin chasing down the leader.   It was a good race at the end for the fans, as Scott was able to challenge the leader a little but never quite enough to get around him and number 21x Travis Saurer took the checker and Scott finished 2nd.
