Wasmund Racing - Preparing for the Knoxville Natls

This past Saturday, Matt Wasmund of Jackson, MN, took the Keizer Wheels XXX Chassis to Knoxville Raceway to make a few laps before the upcoming 49th Annual Super Clean Knoxville Nationals presented by Lucas Oil. With the good motor waiting in line at the dyno, the Wasmund team went to Knoxville with the short track motor and knew that they would be behind the eight ball due to the lack of power.

“We came down here tonight to test our car and give us some laps before the nationals,” explains Wasmund. “We broke the crank in our big motor last June up in Fargo (Red River Valley Speedway, West Fargo, ND 6/20) and we are still waiting for that to come back from the engine dyno… so we are here tonight with our short track motor.”

The Wasmund team qualified towards the rear of the 34 car lineup with the underpowered engine which put the Keizer Wheels XXX Chassis on the outside of the fourth row in the heat race.

Matt finished 8th in the ten lap heat, which put the 4w on the fifth row for the start of the “B-Main.”

He climbed up to 8th in the “B-Main” missing the transfer spot, but had a very good night with the car. “The car was fantastic,” says Matt. “I don’t feel bad at all about where we finished tonight because we came here on the notion for a test night. I think our Keizer Wheels XXX Chassis is good to go for the nationals and when we get our motor back we’ll have one more practice night during the 360 Nationals and we will be ready to rock for the 410 Nationals on the 12th.”

Next up for the Wasmund Racing team will be this Friday at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, IA. Rock Rapids will be having a special 410 winged sprint show and will also have the “Traditional HRA Wingless Sprints” to add to the program.

Matt’s limited ’09 schedule of 6 races thus far has brought the team three top ten finishes including a 9th place finish at Deer Creek Speedway with the IRA Sprints, a 7th at I-90 Speedway and a 5th place finish at the high-banked Huset’s Speedway.
