The name is Todd SHAFFER.

I'm picking Doug Esh this Friday AND Saturday . They made a big improvement last Friday night / Saturday morning .

From Doug's website http://www.dougesh.com :

My good friend and long time supporter, Rich Fox, once told me "don't let the highs get to high and the lows get to low". I've always tried to keep this in the back of my mind, especially in racing. And this weekend was a perfect example. On Friday night at the Grove we were junk! In the heat race we started 5th and backed up to 8th, the car was undriveably tight. After changing the shocks, bars and stagger, we started 6th in the consi and finished 4th, but the car rolled up on the right front and was still tight. It felt like my left rear tire was a foot off the ground going into the turn. I like when the car wings into the turn leans on the left rear and drives around the turn with as little steering input as possible. And then to top the night off, we're lining up for the feature and I'm idling down the front stretch and Cody Darrah ran into the back of my car. With not enough time to change the wings, the race went green and we were not able to restart. I didn't talk to Cody about the incident, since it simply doesn't change anything. I'm sure something failed on his car, but this was about all we could take. This would be a point when you have to "not let the lows get to low".

This is were my team takes over. I would put this group of guys against any part time, full time or even World of Outlaw team. After being junk all night and getting run over, I feel like I can't drive, Dennis frustrated with a car that doesn't react to his changes the guys got together and decided to put another car together for Saturday night. Not just another car, but a car designed like the one we've run in the past, that we had lots of success with. We all went straight from the track back to the shop and took a bare frame and built a car that was ready to start by 4 am Saturday. We got some sleep and met back at the shop, finished some loose ends and headed for Lincoln. Once on the track, I felt awesome in warm-ups. Just like my car felt back in 2006. In the heat race I was able to get to the top, get to the lead and check out. The harder I drove the car the better it handled and the faster it was. Finally, I was excited about the car I had to drive. It handled like a dream and reacted to all the changes we made. In the feature we lined up 6th, after racing heavy lap traffic we finished 3rd. It was really the first time I was able to race with everything operating and I could have race another 25 laps without any problem. I didn't race to the potential of the car but honestly, I wanted to get a good finish and begin to climb out of the hole we got in. Secondly, after all the work the guys did with building the car and the late hours I wasn't going to risk getting into trouble. This is an example of the confidence I have in our team. Certain things you can control and others you can not and I know our team is working hard, putting forth the effort and they have the skills to get the job done. Sometimes it just doesn't go the way you would like and that's why you can't "let the highs get to high and the lows get to low". See you next week.

Keep up to date on everything that is going on with the 30 team . Doug has an update on the main page weekly now.

As much as I hate to say it, you have to go with guys who havent run good or have had bad luck so far this season. That makes the choices somewhat obvious but hey they dont race these things on paper.

Williams Grove- 25th in points and has been there for the past 2 weeks for the easy win, Jeff Shepard
Lincoln- 20th in points and has watched the last 2 features from the hauler, Brian Leppo
Port Royal- Finished 18th last week and should start up front, Greg Hodnett
Go Brian!
