MacAskill, Mike



            Mike and I were chatting on Facebook one night about some of my photos of him carrying a Checkered Flag following his first Heat Race win in the Tiger Division.  I said something like "the first one with a Feature Event win will be even sweeter.....only thing missing is a CreativeOutbursts.com decal!"  Mike replied with something like "You can have my whole trunk if you get a decal printed!"  Well......it sure didn't take me long to contact my printer (A-1 Graphics) and put in my order.  This guy is battling every week in this, his rookie season, after claiming the Street Stock Championship last year.  He is in a close race for Rookie of the Year...and he WILL win a couple Features this year.  So....thank you for supporting me Mike....and I look forward to seeing you in Victory Lane soon!

MacAskill gets wrecked in the Feature

Mike made it back on the track and into the fight thanks to some quick work by his team

EVENT 10 - CASELLA WASTE MANAGEMENT
JULY 21, 2011

Mike just couldn't get things going in the heat race

MacAskill had the misfortune of being behind Joe Steffen early in the Consi....
he almost had to come to a stop to avoid destroying both cars

Not sure what position Mike was credited with finishing...but his car was in one piece
for a change!

Action from the heat race

Mike took this ride off the backstretch on his way to a 22nd place finish in the Feature

EVENT 12 - SAFELITE AUTO GLASS
AUGUST 4, 2011

Mike put together a great race to pick up the win in his heat

 Even though it looked to me like MacAskill had help dumping the 94, the driver didn't think so and came
back and dumped Mike under Yellow.  He was shown the door, and thankfully didn't damage the car.
Mike went on to a 10th place finish

EVENT 15 - VERMONT ACE HARDWARE STORES
AUGUST 18, 2011

After the heat race, fellow rookie Dylan Payea decided that he should ram Mike....I was
happy to see Mike slam on the brakes.  Dylan did similar after the Feature to the winner, Jason Allen.
I guess he doesn't care that he is destroying any chance to gain the other drivers' respect.  Moron.

MacAskill left the Feature on a hook after being spun out.  He was credited with a 21st place finish

EVENT 16 - AUBUCHON HARDWARE - BENJAMIN MOORE PAINT
