Reynolds, Don



            Don returns to the track this season with renewed energy and high hopes.  He finished 2010 just outside the Top 10 in points....but look for some improvement this season.  At the season ending banquet, Don was presented with the Raymond Brown Memorial Award in the KDD NAPA Ridge Runner Hornets....an honor that he doesn't take lightly.  Look for that to add some confidence as he battles toward the front!

WEEK 16 - SWENSON'S INSURANCE CO.
AUGUST 20, 2011

I write down the finishes of each race....even qualifying.  I had Don winning this heat...transponders
said that he was second to Eric Lang.  It's all about angles and inches!!

Two members of Team 87 (Don's girlfriend Dawn and son Brenden) during Kids Rides.....why is he riding
with someone else?!? haha

 I thought this was the end of a good run for King....after getting slammed in the side a few laps earlier
suddenly the 7 car just turned sideways in front of him.  A yellow came out, he was given his spot back,
and continued on his way

Big D must be thrilled with how this season is going!  Another 3rd place trophy to go on the mantle
