Power Pays Tribute to Gould at Brockville Opener

Written by  on Thursday, 16 May 2013 10:38

May 15, 2013 - Although Jessica Power has a few races in already in 2013, the opener at Brockville Speedway was circled on the calendar ever since the schedule had been released.  Not only was Saturday night the season opener at their home track, it was also Glen Gould Memorial Night.  Glen was a great supporter of Jessica and her team, and when he passed away last fall, it left a huge hole in the hearts of the entire racing community.

Power arrived at Brockville Speedway with a tribute paint scheme, honoring Mr. Gould.  She started the night at the rear of her qualifying heat race and battled to a fifth place finish.  Once back in the pit area, the team made some changes to the car, looking to fine tune the setup going into the 25 lap main event.  She would start the feature from the 19th position and gradually moved forward as the race progressed.  By the halfway point, she had moved into the top ten, and continued to move towards the top five.  With three laps remaining she moved into sixth, and crossed the finish line in that position.

"The car worked really well tonight", said Power after the race.  "If we had started a little higher up we definitely could have been inside the top five.  It was a good start to our season and we will build on this next week".

This coming weekend will be a busy one for Jessica and the team as they celebrate the Victoria Day Holiday beginning with a Friday night trip to Can Am Motorsports Park in Lafargeville, New York.  They will be back at Brockville Speedway on Saturday night for the first race in the Seaway Sportsman Series.  On Sunday, they will travel to Cornwall Speedway for their opening night of 2013.

Jessica Power and the Power Racing team would like to invite all young fans to check out the kids club section of our website.  Download and print the cartoon racecar and submit to Jessica after the races each night.  The last Saturday of every month during the season, Jessica will pick a random winner among the entries received, and that young fan will win a photo of Jessica's car and another prize that has yet to be determined.  Depending on number of entries received, Jessica would like to hang the photos up inside the trailer throughout the month preceding the draw.  So get out your crayons and markers, download the photo on the website, print it off and get coloring.  You could be a winner.  The first draw will take place on Saturday, May 25th at Brockville Speedway.
