Adam Dobbs Wins F2 Feature at Western Springs

11 February 2013 - 10:40 PM

Adam Dobbs, Saturday 2/9/13. Western Springs Speedway, NZ


“Great Night ..Had some luck fall our way tonight. And when you get a chance like that you just gota take it.


Good thing about tonight is we made some changes, learnt a ton and get a feature win. We have been chipping away at all season. It has been a major undertaking to get back into racing after destroying my circuit racing car 5 years ago. I started of with $7000 and have put my nuts on the line brought and sold a few times and really stretched myself to the limit in terms of $$$ getting this up and running. But I have done it!!!

Now with the 2012/Spike/PBH Honda doing the job and a spare Spike in the workshop we have really taken a huge step in terms of making sure we have a good strong base to work from for next season. The last 5 nights we have been one of the strongest cars out there not finishing lower than 5th in the feature race and after a bad start to the season we are marching up the points table. The result is Fantastic but to never give up of the dream of getting the helmet back on is what I'm super stoked about..

I'm racing ...everything else is a BONUS !!!..” Adam Dobbs, #92A, Spike / PBH Honda.


PBH Indy congratulates Adam, his sponsors; Narellan Pools, Filtermaster NZ, KBL Earthmovers, SSL, Takanini Custom Fabrication, Eastside Concrete Pumps, OCL Communications, Loughdowney Enginneers, along with his crew; Adrian Homewood, Kevin Nicol, Khan Hema plus Grady and Bob Homewood, Lynn Rodgers for there skills in there raceshops, his friends, and everyone else who has helped for all their hard work and perseverance.  It's really cool to have played a part in Adam's first feature win with his PBH Indy Honda powered Spike in his first season of racing in the 2-Liter, F2 Midget Class at Western Springs Speedway, NZ. As Adam says, "Everything else is a bonus!!!"


Jake Swanson Finishes 2nd to Brad Kuhn at Santa Maria

Santa Maria Speedway 5/12/12

By Jake Swanson

I've always had a love for the banked third mile oval, but even more so after our run there last Saturday night. It was a strong showing of 20 midgets for the USAC Western States event.

The night began with hotlaps on an already dry racetrack. From hotlaps we tightened the car up a ton but it wasn't quite enough. My Q effort put us p8. Again we went even more drastic on the Stealth chassis to find bite.

My heat had cousin Cody on the pole, myself starting 4th, and Kruser behind me. Cody jumped to an early lead as I tried to make my way through traffic as quick as I could. By the time I got to 2nd Cody was long gone. I had to settle for second.

My 8th place qualifying effort landed us on the pole for the feature because of the 8-car invert. I had a great start and set the pace for the early laps of the race. I had a good sized lead before the first yellow (of many) came out. On the restart national driver Brad Kuhn and the Kruser jumped to 2nd and 3rd behind me. I gave my best to hold them off, but we were no match for those two. I fell to third ran there by myself. The car was pretty fast though, I had a good buffer distance between myself and the rest of the field.

On another restart the 2nd place car of Kruseman began to stumble and slow which gave us back the 2nd spot. I ran there for the remainder of the race.

It was a good night for us. I love being able to put this #05 Honda on the podium for HPD, Skeet at PBH Indy, and DC at Crower Performance. With each race we continue to learn more and become even stronger.

Thank you to everybody helping us with this program; Lucas Oil, Goodwine Glass, Honda Racing, PBH Indy, Crower Performance, One Day Signs, Ego Tactics, K&N Filters, and Oakley.

This weekend it's on to Hanford for the next round of the USAC Western Midget Series Schedule.

I've also got the onboard video of the race posted, check it out!
