It's Ready!!

Finally, we are ready to go racing! Butch is looking forward to practice on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway to shake down the car and break in the new GM 604 Crate Engine.

Our first official race event is scheduled for Saturday, April 4th at Mercer Raceway Park. Tri-City Speedway has moved their opening night back to April 26th, so we will be racing mainly at Mercer for the month of April.

The first FASTRAK Northeast Tour Event is Saturday, April 25th at Tyler County Speedway in West Virginia. It will be our first visit to the track and the cars will be running topless, so we are really looking forward to it.

I'll let you know how practice goes and will hopefully have some better pictures to share soon!

Can you hear it?

If you listen really closely, you can almost hear the sounds of engines roaring! It's getting close! Only 14 short days until Butch Lambert and the Lambert Racing #27 rolls on to the track at Lernerville Speedway for practice on Saturday, March 21st!

The crate is almost 100% ready to go - just needs lettered - which will be done in the next 2 weeks. Sadly, we were not able to secure any new sponsorship for 2009, but we do still plan to follow the FASTRAK Northeast Tour as much as possible. After practice on the 21st, we will open the season at Mercer Raceway Park on Saturday, April 4th for their first regular night of competition and follow that up at Tri-City Speedway on the 5th for their opening night. The following weekend we will be at Mercer once again, but Tri-City is closed for the Easter Holiday. We will be back to Mercer and Tri-City on April 18th & 19th, then on April 25th we will make our first ever trip to Tyler County Speedway for a "Topless" FASTRAK Northeast Tour Event. We will close April out at Tri-City on Sunday the 26th.

Our first road trip of the season will be over Memorial Day weekend when we will travel to The Dirt Track at Lowe's in Charlotte, North Carolina for a FASTRAK National Event. We have not yet decided where we will go from there - to Wythe or Sharon Speedway.

It does not look like the emod will be ready for the Chiller Thriller at Mercer, but work is progressing in that camp as well.

Check back soon for pics of the new car! I will post them as soon as it's done!

See you at the races!
