Saturday was a busy day for Jessica Power and the Power Racing team. First up was a trip to Brockville for the 1st annual Brockville Ontario Speedway Fan Fair held at Home Hardware. After a couple hours, the team then packed up and headed for Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park for a practice session in preparation for the season opener this coming weekend.
The BOS Fan Fair turned out to be a great success for everyone, as many local race fans came out to get a glimpse of the new cars for the upcoming season. Drivers were on hand to sign autographs and talk with local race fans that came out. The event was also a fundraiser for the local Big Brothers and Big Sisters clubs.
The second stop of the day was at Can Am, as they hosted a practice session leading up to their season opener this coming weekend. Power ran several laps and experimented with different shocks and set-ups on the car.
“We really learned a lot here today”, says Power. “We have been working hard on our shock program for this year, and we tried some new shocks and really liked what we found. I am anxious to get back on the track here Saturday night and see where we are at against the rest of the division”.
Power will race at Can Am this Saturday night, and will hit the road to Merrittville Speedway on April 28th for their season opener. The Power Racing team will race at Mohawk International Raceway and Brockville Speedway weekly in 2012, as well as the full Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman Series. Mohawk and Brockville open on May 11th and 12th respectively.
There is no debate that Jessica has improved as a driver over the last couple years. Her accomplishments in 2011 did not go unnoticed, as she recently won the Dirt Track Digest Most Improved Driver Award for 2011. The award was voted on by an online vote at Dirt Track Digest, and was also voted on by a panel of 11 respected motorsports personalities in this area. She received top votes from both.
