Race 13 - 2021

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: After a slipup over sponsorships last week, Fireplug Fitzpatrick put in a visit to Aunt Vida's Pasty Emporium to make up for it. Fireplug took orders behind the counter and helped prepare pasties in the kitchen. "It was a simple mistake, but I wanted to show that I truly care about my sponsors and want to represent them in the best manner possible." Fitzpatrick said. Aunt Vida herself was asked about Fitzpatrick and remarked, "He was very nice and really wanted to make amends for what happened last week. I hope he continues to well this season, and if he decides to come back, the Pasty Emporium will have his back."
  • PRESS RELEASE: Gunther Heindrickson was asked if proclaiming himself ready to join the main series next season has sidetracked him from contending for the Aeon Seires title. "Well, we've had a couple of bad races, but I don't see that as being sidetracked," said Heindrickson. "I know (Marthis) Fiino has been generally more consistent this season, and has a good-sized lead. But anything can happen, and the last three weeks will show just what Yooperland Speedtraps is made of."
  • Adam James is mildly injured in a high speed crash during a practise lap, but heroically continues to try to get the job done.
  • Robert Hicks has a poor week but remains upbeat. "Every driver on this track has had a week like this at some point. It's part of racin'"
  • Andy McEvoy's sponsor is in the news for running a 24 hour charity drive, giving a positive vibe to his entire team.
  • Ivan Bender makes a cameo appearance in a movie, released coinciding with race week. It gives him a boost.
  • Conor Westfall has a fair to middling week as talk begins to pick up about his predicted impending retirement.
