(Bill W) June 1, 2017 – It was a mixed bag of results for the Deuce Motorsports #49 team and driver Josh Schneiderman last weekend. He had high hopes heading into a pair of Iowa Sprint Invaders dates in Donnellson and West Burlington, but they both ended with a bit of disappointment. The West Burlington driver would drive from row eight to register another top ten finish in 410 competition at the Knoxville Raceway Saturday. The team will have a breather this weekend before taking on the World of Outlaws for two nights at Knoxville and the All Stars in West Burlington the following week.
Last Friday at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Josh finished fourth in his heat, then drove from tenth to finish seventh in the feature at a track he has tasted victory at. “We were struggling with a couple of gremlins on the motor,” he says. “We got that figured out. We just weren’t as good as we needed to be with the racecar. We just didn’t get the car tight enough. We weren’t as good as we had been in the past.”
He timed in 13th quick at Knoxville with his 410 Saturday. “I didn’t think our qualifying effort was bad,” says Josh. “It just wasn’t as good as it needed to be for us to start up front. We have done really well compared to where we were a year ago.”
After running third in his heat, Josh charged from row eight to checker tenth in the main event. “I think we were a little better than tenth, but we’re not disappointed,” he says. “The track was a little heavier with all the moisture last week. It was heavier than we’ve seen, but they did what they had to do to get the show in. We were happy running up to tenth.”
He ran second in his heat Sunday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, qualifying him for the Dash. After finishing third in that, he started outside row one of the feature, and was running third late in the race when disaster struck. “We were really good at Burlington,” says Josh. “It ended in an unfortunate way. I saw Jamie Ball out of the corner of my eye above turn two, and what I saw was him trying to drive back on the racetrack. I was intending to move down off the cushion, and when I did at that speed on the slick, I spun sideways. Jarrod (Schneicderman) had nowhere to go and got into the side of me. It stinks regardless, but screwing up your brother’s race too was bad.”
Any rumors of Josh taking the wings off and running with USAC this Saturday at Knoxville are false. “Brittany and I have a scheduled baby class,” he says. “Next week will be busy with three 410 shows, and we’ll have the engine we dyno-ed last week ready for that. I tweaked a frame rail on Sunday, so that needs fixed too. It’s a good time for a little break to get re-energized.”
