Ultra4 Glen Helen Raceway - by Wayland Campbell

June 11th, 2016 - Glen Helen 

Well I learned a very valuable lesson Saturday, the race isn't over until you cross the finish line. I started 19th in the main and pushed my car to the limit the whole race and eventually found my way to 1st place with an incredible lead. In my mind I had already won. I was wrong, I let the track get the best of me and ended up rolling on the last lap with less then half the track to go. The recovery team got me back on my wheels but sadly I couldn't get my car started because my alternator had gone bad and drained the battery. Luckily my sisters co-driver ran out to where I rolled and used a jump pack to start my car and I was able to finish 5th. This was not the weekend i was hoping for but I had some really good battles trying to fight to the top and had a blast doing it. Congrats to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd and thank you everyone who helped my family and I out this weekend.
