A few words from John, Melissa & the Hellion Team
With the end of the season here, I wanted to write one last summary letter to sum up the race weekend in Bowling Green, KY and to take a moment to express my gratitude for all the sponsorship you have given me.
Going into Bowling Green, KY, our team sat 2nd in points, trailing closely behind John MacDonald. We knew that in order to win this race, we needed to maintain our consistent runs and do our best. First round eliminations saw some exciting racing as one of the top 3 contenders was taken out, followed by round 2 where we saw some cars have mechanical failure. Third round eliminations came and we found out that due to engine problems, John MacDonald was unable to race Chip Havemann. MacDonald’s inability to make that round left the door open for us to win the championship. We entered the final round down by 90 points, if we win; we knew we would clinch the championship. The tree fell and our competition got loose mid-track and we have had a solid 7.41 to take the win!
Winning our sixth championship was not only incredibly exciting but also extremely rewarding. After all the seasons’ ups and downs, we were able to win our 6th for not only team Hellion, but for all our sponsors as well. Without your support we could not have won this year. We look forward to defending our championship next year!
