Stenhouse Jr. scores first win of the year!
(5/08/2005 Eldon, MO) If you would have asked Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. how he was feeling after Friday nights WoO show at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, MO his answer would have been "Let's go home." The young fast Phnom from Olive Branch, MS did not have the run he hoped Friday night when mechanical problems forced the driver to pull off while running a solid 3rd in the "B" main. Fortunes change and that is the great thing about racing, one night your down the next the top of the world.
The SBS motorsports team went to work on the Fast Effects, Kross Town Cleaners, LoMax Insulation, J&J Chassis, DynoTech racing engines #40R and dropped in the 360 and decided to stay in Eldon and run the local show. It was a good decision. The Phnom started 5th in his heat and with in a few laps was pacing the field to the checkers. >From the outside of the front row the high school junior would take the lead in the "A" feature and not look back until the checkers flew. Victory #1 in 2005.
"Good thing I listened to Dad and stayed." chuckled Stenhouse, Jr. "Friday night we had a fast car and something just wasn't right in the "B" so rather than stay out and risk it I pulled in. I like this track, we ran good here last year in the ASCS race so I looked forward to coming here. Again Dad gave me great power with our DynoTech engine and the car handled great. I am hoping this is the first of many wins this year for us. We are ahead of last year with our first win coming sooner."
