Don Simons And Moses Smith Capture A Third Place Podium Finish

Buttonwillow Raceway -- November 23, 2003 - The Pacific Nights Enduro race was a schedule ninety minute race with two mandatory five-minute pit stops. The weekend started out well. After some quick but beneficial testing, Moses and Don were able to place the Telesoft Solution #66 car off-pole in a grid of seven Formula Mazda racers. After two pace laps, the green flag flew and everyone maneuvered through turn one cleanly.

Racing to the first scheduled pit stop, Moses would secure a solid second place. During the pit stop, the Tom Moore Motorsports crew would refuel, while Don Simons was being belted into the vehicle to take over the driving duties. The operation went flawless and with time to spare. Simons would head back out on track in fourth position. During his session, Don passed two cars reclaiming second place.

After the second and last scheduled pit stop Moses would jump back into the car in hopes of claiming a victory for the Telesoft Team. Unfortunately, during this stop, a small amount of fuel was spilt in pit lane, a violation of the rules, which resulted in a one minute "stop and go" penalty.

After serving the penalty, Moses would reenter the race in fifth place with less then ten minutes remaining. With an exciting pass on the white flag lap, Moses managed to move up for a third place finish.

"I would like to give a special thanks to Don Simons and the Telesoft Solution/Tom Moore Motorsports crew for this exciting opportunity." Moses stated after the race. "What a great and fun experience!" Moses also wished to extend his appreciation to his other sponsors, who include Team Tomlin, HASA Pool Products, RLV Tuned Exhaust, Justice Brothers, and Mother's Car Polishes.
