The schedule for the second day of the Midwest Junior Super Series consisted of the Quick !6, the age group classes followed by the Sportsman race. The Sportsman race consisted of all the cars running in their age groups through a series of elimination rounds. When the groups reached eight, they were put into a Ladder system with all the cars running against each other, regardless of group/class.
In the Quick 16, it was Jesse Lasik against Madison Drafke, with Jesse taking the win light.
In the 6-9 age group, it was Nash Rachford taking the win light over Griffin Kroening.
In the 10-12 age group, Gavin Adams defeated Lane Fisher.
In the 13 and over group, it was Jordan Ancel over Caleb Burns.
After the age groups completed their competition, the Sportsman Race began it's eliminations.
In the finals, it was Sarah Bazell against Alyssa Marten. Sarah is 16 years old and comes from Lancaster, Oh. If Alyssa's name sounds familiar, she won Friday night's $500 Gambler race. She was going for a double.
With Alyssa in the far lane and Sarah, the near, it was a close race, however Alyssa took the win light to complete the double!
During the event, I was trying to think of something a little different to shoot that I don't normally do. It dawned on me that shooting the cars and documenting the races didn't tell the whole story. So I thought I would photograph the Mom's and Dad's as they prepped the cars to run. Without them, the kids wouldn't have the fun of racing.
