The long winter appears to be over in central Pa. and it’s time to go racing. Cory and the Mike Barshinger 11c team have been hard at work getting things ready for the upcoming season. The team will start the season in the same car that won the final race of 2014 at Williams Grove Speedway. A new Triple X car is assembled and ready to make its debut as well. A final schedule is being put together but the team will again concentrate on the full seasons at Lincoln and Williams Grove. All three races at Path Valley are being strongly considered as well as a couple speed week shows.
On Sunday the team traveled to Lincoln Speedway where their opening race was finally held after three straight snow outs. The race track was very soft and it was an extreme challenge for all involved. The team drew a high number and Cory started 9th in his heat and finished 7th. That put him in the 3rd starting spot in the B main and he finished there.
Cory lined up 21st to start the feature. It was a long caution filled event but the car was good and he kept out of trouble most of the race. At the checkered flag Cory had advance very nicely and finished 5th.
This coming weekend the team will return to Lincoln for their first Saturday night race of the season before heading to Williams Grove on Sunday to shake down the new car at the test and tune day.
