The 2011/12 season came to an end for Danny Reidy in last Saturday night’s 13th round of the KRE Sprintcar Series at Archerfield Speedway and he celebrated the occasion with a podium result.
Third place, behind winner Andrew Scheuerle and second placed James McFadden, was a satisfying result for the NT # 5 Desert Palms Resort – Alice Springs supported J&J driver. However, this result quite possibly could’ve been better.
“I was running second during the middles stages of the feature race but made some wrong decisions in lapped traffic and James [McFadden] got by me, and was unable to get him back,” explained Reidy. “We’ve had a strong finish to the season and anytime that you can come away with a podium finish is a pleasing result.”
Reidy, who had earlier in the night showed strong speed by posting the fourth fastest lap in time trials followed by podium finishes in both of his heat races from the rear of the field and then placed third in the dash, was helped on the night by V8 Supercar legend Glenn Seton.
“We decided to get Glenn [Seton] on board to help us with a few areas, mainly in the shock department,” commented Reidy. “During the night we tried a number of things with Glenn and made a couple of gains in the process.”
With the 2011/12 season over, Reidy is now headed back to his home state, Northern Territory, to prepare his off-road truck for next month’s annual Finke Desert Race which is held in his home town, Alice Springs.
