13th at PASS South Orange County
At the first 2014 race for the Super Late Model, the #35 was strong right from unloading from the trailer for Friday practice. With just a few changes Derek was able to run in the top five on the time sheets.

During the last practice session the panhard bar broke. That causied the drive shaft to snap in half, which crushed an oil line by the drive shaft hoop. Luckily Jay Folgeman (who ran the #35 to third in the Oxford 250 in 2013) let the team use his race shop in Durham, NC to insure the repairs were complete and the setup was perfect. The work went well, but it was a 2 AM finish time.

Next day at the track car felt good, ended up timing 4th place. After the Top 10 redraw, Derek started in fifth.

The #35 ran well for the first 60 laps. But then the motor started to skip consistanly with a possible ignition issue. Derek dropped back to about 10th at one point in a tough race where half of the 28 starters had retired by the 100 lap mark.

On lap 119 the motor first loaded up coming out of turn two  and then cleared out, causing the car to get sideways and hit the outside the wall. A 13th place finish was the result.
THE 2014 SEASON SHAPES UP
Derek plans on putting most of the focus in 2014 on the PASS Super Late Model program. The team will head down to Rougemont, NC for a PASS South 150 lap event at Orange County Speedway for Derek's first race of the season.

Highlights of the PASS SLM season will be the Oxford 250 and the Southern Maine Motors 300.

Derek has had only one test ride in a Tour Type Modified before this year. So a limited Modified schedule is planned to
start slow and shake out the cob webs. The first events will be two races that are part of the new Tri-Track Open Modified Series -  May 11th at Lee and June 14th at Star. The third race will be at Seekonk on Open Wheel Wednesday on July 23rd.

The first NASCAR Whelen Modified Series race with the big boys will be June 21st at the Waterford Speedbowl. Two Thompson (including the World Series) and one Stafford Whelen races will follow later.

October 4th will see Derek at the DAV Fall Classic SLM open race where Derek posted a Win in 2012 and a 2nd in 2013.

Derek is shooting for a couple of PASS wins in 2014 after mechanical failures and some bad luck marked the 2013 PASS effort.

The Ramstrom Racing Team has been working hard all winter to better prepare the #35 SLMs and MOD for an exciting race season.

Our thanks go out to Matthews Truck Service and Towing of Sterling, MA for their support.  The help preparing the cars and the continued funding of expenses makes it possible for Ramstrom Racing to compete this season.
