Snowflake 100 12/5/2020 ends the season with a flaky wreck in the LCQ race at 5FlagsSpeedway.
No where for #55 Charlie Keeven to go during the crash on lap 30 of the Last Chance Qualifying (LCQ) 50 lap race when a car in the rubble pivots and crashes straight into passenger door ripping off the sides and damaging the frame of Charlie's car. It was a hard hit. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Both drivers were able to walk away from the scene while both cars were too damaged to finish the LCQ race for a last chance position in the Snowflake 100 feature race. A total disappointment for Missouri driver with big hopes of making the feature race in Pensacola Florida.
I thought he won it until...Bristol Motor Speedway CRA chase race #3 9/26/2020. I'll let you decide.
We started 11th out of 16 cars in the Pro late model series race. Charlie moved to #1 on lap 81 of 100 laps and pulled away from other racers making it look like the win was his and we would be 1 of 4 making it to the champion race playoffs. #55 Charlie Keeven, who turned 14 on 6/30/2020, lost the sword on the 8th restart of race after final caution with only 2 laps remaining of the race. 27 year old Brock won race as Charlie pushed his car through the smoke filled finish line almost recapturing the lead he had prior to the 8th caution with only 6 cars standing in the original 16 cars lined up at the start of the race. It was a battle Charlie did not know existed as the desire for the sword has been a long standing goal of the veteran drivers who have chased it's ownership for many years. Charlie held on and pushed his way to 2nd place. First time visitor and racer at Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlie took to the track immediately calling it one of his most favorite tracks as he specializes in high bank bull tracks throughout his racing history.
Lucas Oil Raceway Fall Brawl 9/20/20 lives up to it's name and Charlie scores 4th in CRA All Stars.
Charlie starts 4th and finishes 4th. I think he could have got 3rd but had to race against lap car for numerous laps for some reason. He needs at least 3 more points to make the Championship race at Nashville. There was a fight, my umbrella broke due to wind and multiple umbrellas landed on the track during a caution. I had to make a decision whether to post the 1st or 2nd part of race and earlier day pictures due to technical difficulties. Speed 51 has a recording of entire race from leader point of view. Will post group picture upon receipt.
