Posted on October 23, 2017Comments are off

The Coy Racing season has come to a close this past weekend at the Waterford Speedbowl with a non-points race. This race was only added a week or so ago and the team decided they would go, but they were not going to buy any new tires for this race. So, needless to say it was a tough day of racing.

The feature line-up would be set… Read More »

We’ve got a plan to try and close the gap over… Read More »

Coy Racing snags first Top 5 of the Season

Posted on July 31, 2017Comments are off

The guys had a 6.5 hour ride to Speedway 51 this past weekend, so they left on Friday night. They drove about 4 hours and stayed in Springfield, VT. This left them 2.5 hours on Saturday morning. In true racer fashion, they left at 9 am to head to the track. The gates opened at 2 pm, so they got there a bit early and were the first hauler in line. No one on the team had been to the track before, so they used the time to walk the property and the track. The track is a high banked… Read More »
