Week of Prep Nets SCSCS Veteran Kevin Kromer Second Career Win with Motordrome
Kromer won the Ansel's Tire Outlet Super 50 at Motor Drome Speedway
and notched his second career win in Super Cup competition.
Motorsports decided to send two cars to MDS, one for Kevin and one
for son Kyle. The plan was to finish Kyle's #52 car on Tuesday
night and then put the final touch to the # 77 car on Wednesday
evening. As plans go, this was a good one, no rushing, no panic,
plenty of time to check everything, Kevin knows that preparation is
the key to success.
night was coming along right on schedule, all that needed to be
checked was the engine in Kevin's #77 before loading up for Motor

Although separated by only four points n the standings,
following J.J. Pack's engine failure at Ona, KMS
had offered to postpone Kyle's debut to permit Pack to start the car
for points. Kyle would be making his first start and points
weren't near as important as seat time.
Now KMS was down
a powerplant however without hesitation, Peck
Motorsports, offered Kromer the use of one of their engines.
Now race prep included a trip half way across the state and back on
Thursday so the engine could be installed that night. Some time well
after midnight the car was ready to be put in the trailer for the
five hour drive to MDS. A
week of drama and an early start for race day, Kromer ended with a
well deserved victory.
champion Jody Harrison would capture the pole award but Kromer lined
his # 77 from the outside of the front row. Once the green
dropped Kromer never gave up the top spot, leading every lap in route to
his first win of the year and the second in the series.
just great when a plan comes together. Another example of "Racin'
the way it used be".
