RESULTS FROM THE BIG E ,19 APRIL 2014

We always look forward to going back to one of our favorite tracks, Eldora Speedway.  We have had much success over the years there.  Brady pulled an early pill, number 3.  We were fast in hot lap session 1, the car looked very stable and launched off the corners and roared down the straight aways.  The track got faster as the hot lap sessions progressed.  Going out third to qualify, Brady ran a 15.069, a good 0.2 seconds faster than Mr. Clauson, who ended up 2nd quick. 

The track crew reworked the track , watered it after qualifying and the car that qualified 17th ran away with the race on a tough to pass track.  We had to settle for 5th in the heat race and did not transfer.  Brady started on the pole for the B main and ran away from the remainder of the pack for an easy win.

We started 7th in the A Main on another tough to pass surface and ended up 5th.  Rolled in back in the trailer, which is always a good thing.  Hoped for more, but a good finish none the less.  two big races this weekend.  See you there !!!
RESULTS FROM "THE BURG" USAC RACE # 3 FOR 2014, 5 APRIL
First of all a big thank you to everyone at Lawrenceburg that made this race happen in very difficult conditions. The heavy rains we had was a big challenge in track prep, they did a great job. We drew a pill which put us in the middle of the qualifying order. We were fast in hot laps and that carried over to a 6th quick time, 0.2 off the quick time.

A big opportunity to start in the front row went away in the heat race when an issue in the motor would not allow Brady to attain full throttle and we finished one spot out of a transfer. We led every lap of the B Main to earn our 7th starting spot on the grid for the 30 LAP A Main.

The racing was hot and heavy in the A Main. We dropped to 8th early on and then Brady began his charge. Jon had us all covered until a very late yellow allowed for a wild restart which saw Brady move up to 4th when the checkered flew.

The good news, we had a very fast car again. Looking forward to returning to one of our favorite tracks, The Big E in a couple of weeks.

THE SEASON STARTS IN OCALA WITH  A BIG WIN, OUR 83RD USAC NATIONAL WIN
Wednesday was practice night and we took advantage of the allotted time. We took the primary car out 8 times and the back up car 1 time.  I am sure we put in more laps than any other Team there.  We learned a lot , especially that we had a fast car.  
Thursday was the season opener.  It is hard to believe that there could have been a better way to start the year. We drew pill 2 and we were out first to qualify.  Normally that would make us nervous, but Brady blistered the track turning a fast time of 14.564, good enough for fast time. Brady fought a blocked track most of the heat race , but was able to transfer for the feature by finishing 4th.  The A Main was a good one.  Brady fought his way from the 6th starting spot, battling the best in the business.  He earned the victory by passing , among others, Darland and Hines. Brady got the lead on lap 18 and put considerable distance between himself and the rest of the field.  The historic win was #83 for the Hoffman Team. A very proud moment.  
Friday was a rain out. The younger folks went out.  The more experienced crew members watched the truck race with pizza, wings , wine and beer. 
Saturday brought clearing weather and plenty of sun for night 2 of the Winter Nationals.  Bubba and his crew did a good job preparing the track after heavy rains Friday. After drawing pill #17 , a tough two qualifying laps sealed our fate for the night.  To be clear , we had a fast car , as shown in the heat race.  By feature time the track got narrow and basically one lane.  Starting 13th , Brady was able to work his way to 10th.  There was little passing in the A main.
We left Florida confident that we have the pieces in place to have another championship year.
Hoffman Racing Makes the January 2014 Cover of National Speed Sport News

With a heading reading "What is Good Racing" National Speed Sport News picked the Hoffman Mean Green #69 Sprint Car as a example. But I guess I am preaching to the Choir. If you are here you already know that the non-wing traditional Sprint Car racing delivers some of the most exciting side by side action in motor sports.
