Hodge, Tim





            When you see Tim's 'Lil Deuce' mixed in with other cars in the Fast Four Division, he sure looks out of place.  Sure it's a Mustang GT....but it doesn't look much like any other Mustang at Bear Ridge.  And this Mustang flies!  Watch for him in Victory Lane soon....and often!

WEEK 1 - KDD NAPA OF BRADFORD NIGHT
MAY 7, 2011

Ready to get the season started!!

Definitely a favorite at the car show

Tim's night started off well

Never want to see a smoke trail like that behind a car!


WEEK 2 - WELLS RIVER CHEVROLET
MAY 14, 2011

POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN


WEEK 3 - VALLEY FLOORS
MAY 21, 2011

Tim's night almost ended before it started when he spun in practice

Hodge threw everything he could at Bobby Bell, hoping to grab a spot on the podium.  He fell one position short....
but a 4th Place finish sure beats going up in smoke last week!

Hodge tries to make it three wide down the back stretch

Tim couldn't quite break into the top five for the week

By the second Feature he was ready to mix it up a little and came away with a 10th place finish
 

WEEK 10 - DENNIS PRESTON BUILDER
JULY 9, 2011

Tim looked pretty comfortable in the heat race

Hodges car left on a hook after a scrap in Turn Two....looked like maybe a broken tie rod?

Not sure who.....

WEEK 14 - JTB TOWING & RECOVERY -
INTERSTATE BATTERY SYSTEM OF NEW-MONT
AUGUST 6, 2011

Tim was back behind the wheel of his Little Deuce Coupe.....cast on his broken arm and all

Hodge didn't look to be bothered by his cast at all....he ran a smart race and had control of
his car all the way through.  Not sure how sore he was Sunday morning though!

AUGUST 20, 2011

A closer look at Tim during qualifying

Trying to hold off Terry Williams and Buster Kathan in the Feature

WEEK 17 - SABIL & SONS
AUGUST 27, 2011

This week the coupes ran time trials.....Tim came out but before his session was scheduled to
finish he left that track and did not return.  It looked to me like his car hit a rut and jerked to the right...
Hodge has been in a cast for the last month after breaking his wrist and I would not be
surprised to hear that he re-injured his arm.  I hope that I'm wrong.

WEEK 18 - DEAD RIVER COMPANY
SEPTEMBER 3, 2011

Thankfully I was wrong last week.....Tim didn't re-injure his arm, he broke an axle.  Much easier to fix!

Hodge looked like he has been in a coupe for years the way he ran the Feature!

Tim's first podium finish in the Coupes!  Great 2nd place run!

WEEK 19 - MEKKELSEN RV

Hodge had a great heat race battle with Jason Colbeth

Tim got a little crossed up in the Feature and landed outside the top ten
