LEARNING EXPERIENCE: Just listened to the excellent interview with Sarah Cornett-Ching on last night’s edition of Race Time Radio! Joe and Co-host Jason Thom discussed the Speedway Homes 150 with Sarah and her plans to run the full PASS South series in 2017 along with several North shows. The girl remains upbeat at all times; she knew yesterday would be a challenge. Hell, I know guys who’ve run Oxford for YEARS and still struggle.

Last night at Hickory Motor Speedway

HICKORY, NC (April 16, 2017) – Had a really good car at Hickory yesterday, had a mix up with tires before qualifying which landed us in the consolation race, made it through to the main event but had to start at the back of the field. Started working the high side and was moving forward but unfortunately we got clobbered in the LR and broke the track bar and drive shaft which ultimately ended our night.

Headed to Maine this week to race at Oxford and then Beechridge the following week! Looking forward to it, lots of work to do in the meantime though!

Had a Blast at Thompson Speedway

Thompson CT (April 9 2017) – Had a blast at Thompson yesterday, unfortunately during the heat race the motor stumbled and wasn’t running properly. Problems in the valve train took us out for today’s race, but Dan Collins did a great job spotting for me and I am so looking forward to the upcoming Pro All Stars Series races at Oxford Plains Speedway and Beech Ridge Motor Speedway


It’s refreshing to have competitors willing to help you and do whatever you need to make things happen. Feeling blessed for all the opportunities I’ve had and feeling grateful to be racing where I am now.

CORNETT-CHING SET TO MAKE ICEBREAKER DEBUT AT THOMPSON SPEEDWAY

Location: On the way to Connecticut

Written by:  RACE 101

Denver NC (April 5 2017) – The opening race of the Pro All Star Series North was set to take place last weekend, but instead the race track was blasted with 8″ of snow.

Appropriately named, the annual Icebreaker race was rescheduled for this weekend at Thompson Speedway in Connecticut. Race 101 will field a car for Sarah to compete in the National Championship race this Sunday.The team had to change a few things about their car to meet the rules for the Icebreaker said Sarah.

“We had to change around the exhaust and run it out underneath the car instead of out the side along with installing a muffler. The track also mandates a 2 barrel carburetor instead of the 4 barrel we usually use.”

It will be a first for Sarah in many ways, not only her first trip to Thompson Speedway but first time to the state of Connecticut as well.

“I enjoy getting to see new places through racing and I’m looking forward to trying to see as much as I can while I’m there. The track itself looks like it will be a lot of fun. Ive been told it’s a very fast 5/8 with banking, so I’m excited.”

There is also a change in the procedure of race day in these North races that Sarah thinks will suit her driving well.

“They don’t do single car qualifying like we do down here.” She explained “It’s a heat race that determines where you start in the race. You draw a number for where you start in the heat race and then race for your starting spot in the main event.”

Follow along throughout the Icebreaker weekend with updates from the PASS Facebook page and as always with Sarah’s social media.
