Mason Motorsports Continues His Podium Streak at Crandon
Plymouth, WI (June 26, 2008) - Mason Motorsports continued to land on the podium this past weekend at the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run in Crandon, Wisconsin. The PRO Super Buggy division is extremely competitive as eight of the thirteen drivers are past winners. John Mason, driver of the #912 Mendeola Transaxles Goodyear Tires Honda powered Jimco Super Buggy, considers this his favorite place to race.
Saturday - Round Three
The land rush start saw John Mason come out of Potawatomi Turn One in fifth place. John and fourth place #902 Lemons battled each other for the position throughout the race. John and his #912 Mendeola Super Buggy made several attempts to make the pass but dusty conditions prevented a clean pass. As the laps wound down John ran out of time before he could make the pass stick. In the end, Gary Nierop and Corry Heynan failed to finish allowing, John Mason to finish on the podium once again.
"I've made a lot of laps around here over the years," commented John Mason. "The start is so very important here. If you don't get a good start, you run out of time to get back to the front. That's what happened today. The car was perfect; no problems just clean it up and get ready for tomorrow."
Sunday - Round Four
About forty-five minutes before the start of the PRO Super Buggy race, heavy rain began to fall. It was raining at the start of the race and it was still coming down at the finish. Needless to say, the track was a mess. The track was muddy and there was standing water everywhere.
The start saw #902 Tim Lemons grab the lead with John Mason right behind in second. The weather and track conditions made it almost impossible to see. The only time you saw a pass for position was when someone either spun out or pitted to try to clean their visor. John made the best of the conditions and finished in second place.
"The conditions were miserable," said John Mason. "It was a race of survival. Our Goodyear tires really came through today. Whenever I got close to Tim, his roost just pelted me. I couldn't see. The only way around was if he made a mistake. He didn't. Second place is great considering the conditions. I also have to thank our local supporters of Mason Motorsports, Laona Food Mart helps out with burgers and brats for the weekend, Yeager Oil of Laona for all our lubricants, and Rhinelander Honda with their help with our engine parts. See you in Bark River."
Currently John Mason is in second place in the 2008 WSORR Super Buggy Championship standings.
The next race for Mason Motorsports is the Island Casino/Boss Snow Off-Road Challenge, July 12-13, in Bark River, Michigan.
