Sanders, George




        George comes into 2011 with the right attitude - he's here to have fun and do his best to compete.  He doesn't have the best equipment, even for the Junkyard Warrior Division.  But this years' car is much faster and looks to handle better than the ride he was in last season....and I'm hopeful that will lead to a few Feature Event starts and a podium or two.

EVENT 1 - MERCHANTS BANK 150
MAY 1, 2011

 George held his own through the Reserve Feature


For some reason, Sanders was sent to the back of the field following this caution.  No idea why.

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


Sanders leads the field down the front stretch

George returns to the track after a little sight-seeing over Turn Three

EVENT 6 - FAIRPOINT COMMUNICATIONS
JUNE 30, 2011

George is getting faster every week....he just lacks a bit of aggression and gets shuffled around. 

No luck getting in through the Reserve Feature

EVENT 7 - PEPSI HOLIDAY EVENT
JULY 4, 2011

George looked pretty fast in his heat race

Unfortunately, he has to continue to deal with aggressive driving like this when there's really no need for it.
This guy pushed Sanders into the corner and George had to slow down to avoid being wrecked

EVENT 8 - CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS
JULY 7, 2011

Sanders did his best to hold onto a qualifying spot in his heat race....but some of the other Warriors
are just too fast!

George did a great job here locking up the brakes to avoid the 'Widow Maker'

Reserve Feature action

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

George took the white flag (one lap left) in the lead in the Warriors heat race

Entering the last turn of the Heat, George was holding off the two top runners.  While Kevin Wheatley held back
and played clean, Jason Woodard and his little red battering ram spun him out and cost him the win. 

After being spun by Woodard, Sanders was drilled by Brock Parrott who had no where to go.
Is this stuff really necessary?  Someone is going to get hurt.

EVENT 10 - CASELLA WASTE MANAGEMENT
JULY 21, 2011

George did not compete at this event

EVENT 11 - WDEV & CALKINS PORTABLE TOILETS
