Lord, Keith



            Keith came on board as a decal carrying member of the CreativeOutbursts.com team for the Father's Day race.  Well....not entirely true....I didn't hook up with him in the pits to make the decal hand off so he didn't technically have the logo on his Mustang,...but close enough.

EVENT 4 - HERITAGE EQUIPMENT
JUNE 19, 2011

Keith and Joe Fecteau driving through smoke left by Gary Mullens

Battling with Amanda Habel in the Reserve Feature

This bounce off the Widow Maker cost a couple right side tires....but could have been a lot worse!


EVENT 5 - GOVERNOR'S CUP
JUNE 26, 2011

I had a chance to chat with Keith (and both of his parents) for a little bit before the day got started...nice kid from a nice family. 
That's what short track racing is about! 


Lord spun into the infield during the Reserve Feature and parked not far from me...love the intensity even sitting still! 
Just hope that he doesn't get to discouraged and forget to have fun!


EVENT 6 - FAIRPOINT COMMUNICATIONS
JUNE 30, 2011

Keith had a good fight with Kingsbury in the heat race...unfortunately it was in the back of the pack

Lord ran well enough in the Reserve to make it to the Big Show

Thankfully Keith wasn't injured in this hard wreck with Tim Campbell...his car however was beaten up pretty good

On his way to a 16th place Feature finish

EVENT 13 - M&M BEVERAGE ENDURO &
STREET STOCK SPECIAL
AUGUST 7, 2011

Keith looked pretty good early on

Somehow Lord got turned back around by Joe Fecteau and hardly even slowed down!

I'm not sure what happened but Keith watched much of the Feature from the infield,
before being awarded a 25th place finish

EVENT 14 - TRIPLE 50'S SPECIAL EVENT

AUGUST 26, 2011

Trying to get by Joe Blais in qualifying

Keith battling Gary Bashaw in the Feature....Lord would end up in 14th....and a confrontation of some
sort between the two apparently occurred in the pits after.  Since I did not see it myself, I won't speculate.

EVENT 17 - BOND AUTO LABOR DAY CLASSIC
SEPTEMBER 3-4, 2011

Lord had a terrible weekend.  First, he was DQ'd for dumping another driver in Time Trials
which put him at the tail end of the 'B' Feature.  And damage from the dumping cost him
a chance to get on the track to conclude the Riverside Feature.  Here, he is battling
Jeffrey Martin in the 'B'

before retiring to the pits and failing to make the show
