Colt James has Bad Luck at Hawkeye Downs-

Looking Ahead to Iowa Speedway

(For Immediate Release)


Buda, TX (May 15, 2007)- The true test of a champion is not how they handle the good times but how they come back from adversity. Until the Barron Motor Supply/Crate Motor Classic 200 Presented by Cassill Motors last Saturday night, the 2007 season was off to a great start for Colt James. He was leading the point’s standings, brought consistently fast cars to the track, and had been on the right side of the luck factor too. But last Saturday night is a race Colt would like to forget. “We qualified really bad and that buried us in a big hole,” said Colt James. “The car was actually running great in the race but I got around one of the local guys. I gave him half of the race track but he wanted more.” Colt drops out of the top spot in the standings for the first time all season and is headed to Iowa Speedway this weekend to bounce back. “We got behind the eight ball here but that is going to happen with our little family team. We head to Iowa Speedway and know we can get things turned around and gain on these guys again.” Next up for the cars and stars of the ASA Late Model Series is the Make-a-Wish 150 Presented by TMC Transportation and Northland Oil. The race will be presented in a unique three-part format of fifty laps each and will take the green flag at 7:30 pm Saturday night at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa.
