Emerson, Chris



                Chris enters the 2011 season in the Junkyard Warrior Division, perfect for a newcomer to the high banks of Thunder Road.  His only prior experience on the oval was in a Run-What-U-Brung Spectator race....and apparently he liked it!  There are some quality cars in this class so Emerson should focus on gaining seat-time and learning all that he can.  This is the last season for the Warriors....if he has aspirations to move up to Street Stocks next year any laps he runs now will pay off big time!

EVENT 1 - MERCHANTS BANK 150
MAY 1, 2011

Participating in the Annual Car Show

Chris looked respectable in his first race in the Junkyard Warriors

Emerson is helped to the ambulance after his debut is cut short in the Reserve Feature when another
car slid directly in front of him and he had no where to go.  Although sore, Chris wasn't injured.

EVENT 2 - MEKKELSEN RV MEMORIAL DAY CLASSIC
MAY 29, 2011

Chris did not compete in this event

EVENT 3 - FERGUSON WATERWORKS
JUNE 16, 2011

Battling Brock Parrott

Action from the Reserve Feature....Chris's ankle seems to be healing well from surgery just a few weeks ago...
and as he gets more experienced watch for him to show up in the big show!


EVENT 4 - HERITAGE EQUIPMENT
JUNE 19, 2011

Three wide and on the outside...Chris did a great job holding his line and not getting loose

Emerson fought his way through the Reserve Feature to earn his way into the Feature....just as I predicted last week!

Good to see Chris racing under the lights in the Main Event....where he picked up a 5th place finish among the Warriors

EVENT 5 - GOVERNOR'S CUP
JUNE 26, 2011

Emerson looked great in his heat race...thought he might grab the win!

Nice job holding onto it as Brock Parrott lifts the left rear off the track going through turn four

EVENT 6 - FAIRPOINT COMMUNICATIONS
JUNE 30, 2011

Emerson had a pretty good battle with perennial front-runner Brock Parrott

This didn't end up nearly as bad as it looked like it would as Chris turned sideways in front of Lyndsay Christman,
making her debut at Thunder Road.  She locked up the breaks and saved them both a lot of headaches


Chris did a good job keeping up with Street Stock Keith Fortier in the Reserve Feature...but missed moving on by one spot

EVENT 7 - PEPSI HOLIDAY EVENT
JULY 4, 2011

Chris did not compete in this event

EVENT 8 - CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS
JULY 7, 2011

Emerson is getting more and more competitive in the tough Junkyard Warrior division

Chris has finished just outside the qualified spots numerous times....he'll be grabbing a trophy soon!

EVENT 9 - TIMES ARGUS MID-SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS
JULY 14, 2011

Chris seemed to be having some mechanical issues most of the day....not sure what was going on

Emerson finally had to pull off the track during the Reserve Feature.  Bummer!
