Tough Luck for Wasmund Racing in Fargo

Matt Wasmund out of Jackson, MN took the Keizer Wheels XXX Chassis up to Fargo, North Dakota to race with the World of Outlaws this past Saturday night to make the second appearance of the season for the team. He qualified with a time of 17.2 which would have been good enough to sit him 20th out of the 32 cars entered, but was disqualified due to the nose wing being too far forward on the chassis. He then had to start 8th in the heat and attempt to make the top five to guarantee a starting position in the main event. Wasmund powered to 6th by the time the checkered flag was thrown but was just one spot out of the transfer. With the DQ for qualifying, the 4w had to start at the tail end of the 12 car B-main and would have to finish in the top four to make the main. The Jackson native drove the Keizer Wheels XXX Chassis up to 6th, but with only a few laps remaining the crankshaft broke going down the long backstretch of Red River Valley Speedway and caused a very disappointing end to the evening.

“I was very happy with the car all night,” explains Matt, “The guys’ had the car working great and we had plenty of power, but when the vibrations started on the backstretch I knew it wasn’t going to be good. This is not a good start to the season, but we will get back to the shop and go over a few things and be back on the track very shortly!”

The team was going to swing down to Huset’s Speedway for Sunday night weekly 410 Outlaw Sprint event, but it was cancelled due to rain.
