– Nathan Washam and his Washam Racing team are set to hit the Petaluma Speedway in with the King of the West Series on Saturday night.
“We have been at two KWS races so far this year, and we have had nothing but gremlins that really haven’t let us race,” Washam said. “Everyone has worked so hard on this 410ci car all winter and all year, we are all hoping for a gremlin-free night.”
Making his KWS debut at the Thunderbowl in Tulare, CA in the middle of April, Washam and his team fought a fuel issue all night, and they were never able to get going, and ended up making some under powered laps in the B main, as they continued to chase their issues.
At the Placerville Speedway a week later, the team got their Tulare issues figured out, but on this night they couldn’t get the engine to fire.
“It was a rough two weeks,” Washam said. “We’ve never worked so hard on a car to get ready for the season, and then to have issues like we did was really gut wrenching, but nobody quit.”
Leaving the 410ci engine behind for a couple weeks, Washam and his team went to the Ocean Speedway with their 360ci power-plant for a few weeks to try some things, and use the two night’s like a test.
“It was nice to get back racing,” Washam said. “One night the track was way slick, and we tried some things that felt good, but passing was tough.”
With all of that behind him, Washam and his team will solely be in action with the 410ci engine this weekend, as Washam hopes to truly make his KWS debut.
“We are really hoping all goes well, and we can actually make some competitive laps with the KWS boys,” he added. “They are a great bunch of guys, and I’m eager to learn the 410 stuff with them.”
