2016 Statistics

26 Races : 13 Top 5's, 10 Top 10's and 3 Top 24...

November 5 2016: Final race of the year was at Susquehanna Speedway for a daylight show.

We started p3 in the heat and finished p4.  Not a very clean race and bad calls by the starter of the race.

I don't remember where we started but we had a bleeder stick, right rear went down and had to change it. And another bleeder stuck and tried to change it again buy officials gave a bad call and wouldn't let us back out, we finished p21. Few that was a rough one...


Lincoln Notes: All told, Chandler scored eight top-fives and a division leading 14 top-ten finishes in 18 events, which gave him a slim 35 point lead over Matt Campbell and 45 point lead over Adrian Shaffer, who were all vying for the track title entering the final points race of the year. 



 October 8 2016: Last race of the year at Lincoln Speedway.  

We started p2 in the heat and finished p2.  We pulled #8 for the feature start and drove another great race and finished p4. 


October 3 2016 :  It is with great sadness that we inform all our followers and fans that we lost our #1 supporter

of the 119. Chandler's grandfather, Greg's Dad and my father in law Clarence (Bob) Leiby  aka "PAP" has passed away.  We all adored "Pap" and he will be dearly missed by all his family and the racing community.


September 23 2016 :  Last race at Williams Grove for the year. We started p4 in the heat and finished p3.

We started p8 in the feature due to our points.  We had a great run as Chandler drove the wheels off to a fine 4th place finish.  That was enough to clinch our second place finish in the points and was awarded most improved driver for 2016.  


September 10 2016:  Lincoln Speedway With this being our final point race we went into tonight 55 points ahead of 2 and 3 place.  We needed to finish 10th  if the 2nd or 3rd place in points would win.  Once again we drew a bad number. Starting p8 we had to make the top 4 to transfer to the front, we finished p4.  Since we won last week we were almost guaranteed to start p12 and we did.  It was quite nerve racking watching and waiting in anticipation of what was to come.... the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.  We finished p8 clinching the title for the 2016 358 Lincoln Speedway Championship.  What an emotional race as Pap Leiby was in attendance and was able to celebrate our accomplishment.


September 3, 2016 :  Lincoln Speedway  Going into tonight we were 15 points ahead of 2nd place

in the points chase.  We started p3 in the first heat and finished p3. That started us p7.  With the pole sitter  sitter stopping on the track that moved us up to p5.  Seven laps in Chandler took the lead from Matt Finley

and  battled with Kyle Denmyer on laps 13 and 14 with Denmyer taking the lead.  Chandler took the lead back and went on to win his first win of 2016 and giving us some breathing room going into the final points race.

 Also, a special very big Thank You to Lincoln Speedway for donating the 50/50 portion to our cause.

AUTISM AWARENESS!  We were able to send $2064.00 to The Autism Society of the greater Harrisburg Area in honor of Team 119  and crew member Todd Thomas Jr.
