We are working on the race car during our summer break,
we have the engine out and are waiting on the parts to freshen it up for another 20 races.
Late last season I won a product certificate from The Racers resource and Competition Products, so with new rings, bearings, timing chain and oil pump from

DURICA RUNNING WELL EARLY IN THE 2012 SEASON
Las Vegas, NV (JUNE 2012) –
After missing a the first few early season events, Rick has done well
since his return to action in late April. Starting last in the April 21st main
event Rick had worked his way through the field to the fourth position until a
last lap incident put him back to a 10th place finish. The next race of May 5th
Rick won his heat race and led the first half of the feature, but after a
thrilling battle with Jeff Sheppard for the lead and a late race pass by Bill
Myer ,Rick finished in the 3rd position. May 19th was the next race at the
Mohave Valley raceway.
Starting from the third position Rick quickly moved into the lead on the first
lap and was never challenged for the rest of the race for his second heat race
win of the season. Rick lined up 5th for the nights main event. An
early race collision with a spinning car ripped the right door half off the car
and bent the rub rail and interior bodywork Rick slipped into the second spot.
From there it was a great race for the lead with Mohave Valley, AZ
driver Joe Cross. Rick tried putting the pressure on the leader, working to the
low side of the track, sliding into the high groove, each time almost getting
an advantage, but the leader stayed tough. A few lapped cars made things even
more exciting late in the race and allowed Rick a couple more opportunities to
challenge for the lead. However a last lap turn four pass by Bill Myer dropped
Rick back to 3rd in the final lap.
Rick would like to thank his sponsors, Cole Kepro International from Las Vegas, NV. Hasting Piston Rings, Hasting, Mich. Silver Dollar Recycling, North Las Vegas, NV, Jerry’s Extreme Machine, Pahrump NV California Tool and Supply, Riverside CA and Durica racing.com for their support during the 2012 racing season.

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
