Donny Andrews has raced many races with the KMSA but none will hold the same meaning as the one he raced Saturday night in The Battle of the States at Whynot Motorsports Park. This race was special because this race would mark Donny's first KMSA win. The race unfolded with Donny turning in the fastest lap time during qualifying which locked him in the race sitting pretty on the pole. With time to make his last tweaks, and settle his nerves, Donny made his decision on suspension set up and tires before the feature. The whole race was a battle between Donny in his Little 17, Elvis Turberville in the number 5, Brannon Knight in the number 21, Holdbrooks in the 73, Justin Lott in the number 30 and Bo Minor in the famous Rat Rod number 0. All of them waiting on the other to make a mistake and open up a chance to pass. There were mistakes, Brannon broke a rocker arm that put him out for the night but Donny ran a near flawless race that put him on top of the podium. As far as I am concerned nobody deserved it more than Donny Andrews. Congratulations Donny looking forward to the next race with you.
Thanks to everyone that came out to the Battle of the States. A special thanks to Rodney and his crew for making the event a great one. There were a lot of cars and they made sure the event went smoothly. Rodney had a lot of obstacles to overcome in order to pull it off. With all the rain that fell they had their hands full with the track and pits. Their crew worked the track before the event and between races all night. We had a great time and a good car count and look forward to the next time we can bring our toys and play in their dirt.
