Race 3 - 2021

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: Fireplug Fitzpatrick addressed the incident with a fan from last week's race. "I was leaving the track after qualifying, when this 'spirited' individual gets in my face," Fitzpatrick said. "He starts yelling about how I was a terrible driver and should've retired years ago. I tried my best to blow him off, but he kept badgering me and swung his right hand wildly at me. Well, I ducked his punch and landed a right hook of my own, and it was caught on video and went viral. I apologize that it had to come to that, but I'm not sorry for defending myself." Yooperland officials said that no disciplinary actions would be taken.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Gunther Heindrickson had mixed feelings about last week's performance. On the one hand, a 12th place finish after spinning out of the lead pack about midway through the race was a positive. But the fact that the near accident happened was cause for concern. "There was nothing on the track that looked out of the ordinary," Gunther said. "The car was feeling fine coming out of the turn, and then, WHAMMO, we start spinning. Fortunately, there was no real damage, but it did kill any chance we had of winning that race."
  • Tamauria Spiders sets a record-breaking qualifying time. That's pole position for the sole Spider, plus a boost to start the race!
  • Kiki Roseburg is equally fired up - "There's just nothin' like the smell, the sounds, the whole atmosphere, to get you fired up for a big race." An 8th place qualifying seals the deal for him.
  • Race Practise was successful for Valkyr Slipper, Al Houns and Fireplug Fitzpatrick, who all gain temporary boosts this week.
