Mid America Motorsports - Dave Didero, President
August 22, 2005. The #42 LE Walker Transport Chevrolet team returned to competition at Peterborough Speedway this past weekend hoping to gain some momentum in the final four events of the season.
The team set up at the fast and furious 1/3 mile oval in Ontario’s cottage country and began practice with a well prepared car. Practice and qualifying times were a little disappointing as the team worked to shake off the rust of being away from competition for several weeks.
Starting the race 19th Sean approached with the idea of making the best possible finish in the LE Walker Transport Chevy on a track that’s very tough to pass. Sadly their day would end before the halfway mark of the 200 lap main event due to engine failure.
“This is not the return we hoped for” said team President Dave Didero. “We went all season last year without one failure, this is our third motor to go away this year. I’m not knocking our engine builder, there is obviously a problem that we haven’t diagnosed, we’re going to work together and go through everything piece by piece”.
“I feel so bad for these guys” said driver Sean Stafford. “I see how hard they work to prepare the LE Walker Transport cars and get them ready for race day. We’ll get this problem fixed and then I want to get out there and reward them with a good performance on the track”.
The CASCAR Super Series returns to action on the Labour Day weekend with one of the series Signature events, The Great Canadian 300 at Delaware Speedway.
