|Wednesdays with Wayne – Jackson and Knoxville Next for the WoO and Wayne! (Bill W) June 12, 2014 – It will be another weekend with the World of Outlaws for the Wayne Johnson Racing #77x team. The team heads to Jackson, Minnesota on Friday and Knoxville, Iowa on Saturday this weekend. Last weekend, Wayne suffered a pair of DNF’s racing with the WoO at I-80 Speedway near Greenwood, Nebraska on Friday and the Lakeside Speedway near Kansas City, Kansas Saturday. Wayne would time in 23rd quick at I-80. “We didn’t qualify well,” he admits. “We had a motor issue. It was just getting tired. We were trying to squeak another night out of it. So we changed motors before the heat race.” After finishing seventh in his heat with the new power plant, Wayne started third in the B and won going away. That set him up for a starting spot in row ten for the feature. “The car felt about as good as I’ve felt in a while in the B,” he says. “In the feature, we were decent. I think we were up to fourteenth or so from nineteenth. With two to go, the car blew the U-joint out of it.” The Knoxville, Iowa driver and the team headed for Kansas City, where the race was run despite heavy morning rainfall. “We were able to get everything fixed for Lakeside,” says Wayne. “We didn’t do much better in qualifying (18th) though.” He would finish sixth in the heat, while battling a tight racecar. “We weren’t able to get the car freed up all night long,” says Wayne. “The track was really sticky and we were really tight. Hot lapping before the heat race, I got into the corner and about tipped it over the right front.” Starting 18th, Wayne would officially register a 16th place finish in the main event. “We freed it up even more for the feature, but it still wasn’t enough,” he says. “I made six or seven laps and pulled it in.” Wayne has experienced success at both of last weekend’s tracks, but conditions were different this time around. “When we won there a couple of years ago (Lakeside), it was slicker than slick,” he says. “When we got there Saturday, it had dried up. But after they put water on it, it took a long time to get rolled in.” Take Advantage of Wayne’s Deals on Apparel! New Wayne Johnson Racing #77x t-shirts and sweatshirts are in!
