(Bill W) June 12, 2017 – Josh Schneiderman and the Deuce Motorsports #49 team certainly got some seat time in last weekend in events at Knoxville Raceway with the World of Outlaws, and Sunday with the All Stars at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. Josh would not only qualify, run his heats and all the features, but he had to go through the B main each night as well. The busy weekend has the team recuperating and preparing for just one race this week. That will be Saturday night at Knoxville.
Josh would struggle in qualifying a bit both nights at Knoxville for different reasons. “Friday and Saturday, we were really pretty nice with the Outlaws,” he says. “We’re trying to figure out some gear ratios with the motor we’ve put in. We went the wrong way in qualifying on Saturday, but you need to keep trying until you get it where you need to be”
The draw bit him a bit the first night. “Friday, we weren’t really that bad,” says Josh. “We just went out extremely late in our session. We would have been sixth quick in the other session. Sometimes, you’re just a product of the draw.”
In Friday’s B, Josh would surge from the fifth row to grab the final transfer back from Logan Schuchart late. Schuchart would make the Dash Saturday night. “We definitely gave people their money’s worth there,” he says. “If we can get this qualifying going, we’ll have something for them. We can race with all of them when the feature rolls around.”
On Saturday, he would finish second in the B and 20th in the feature. “We’ve got good racecars, and our engine program is there,” says Josh. “We just need to fine-tune it, and we’ll be there. We’re not far off at all.”
Josh drew a tough group in the All Stars qualifying system on Sunday at his hometown 34 Raceway. “I was halfway excited about how the All Stars drew, but ultimately, it kicked our butts,” he says. “Saying that, we should have been better. We weren’t even close on setup for qualifying. We played catch-up from there.”
Finishing seventh in his heat, he would drive from eighth to third to lock into the final feature of the weekend. Unfortunately, a first lap melee collected him. “There really was nowhere to go in the heat,” says Josh. “We were really good in the B. Then you have people trying to win the feature from 16th on the first lap of the feature. We bent the right front corner of the axle back, and that’s the second axle with that car in two weeks. Financially, it probably would have been better not make the feature.”
