What do you call a transmission full of gremlins and a lapped-contact rollover? Bad weekend! It's been an up and down year for 2009 Winged Outlaw Warriors champ Josh Fisher, and that bad weekend came on the heels of victorious back-to-back performances at the Lake (Missouri's Lake Ozark Speedway, where Fisher leads points in the 360s).
2009 Winged Outlaw Warriors champ Josh Fisher
Fisher wrestled with a failing shifter (which ultimately took the trans with it) in the Northrop #83 at Illinois' Jacksonville Speedway on a hot July Friday evening, and didn't quite master the dark art of moving through lapped traffic (with a #86-demolishing wall climber as a result) at Lake Ozark the following Saturday. Not good, but only a dent in an otherwise strong season.
Fisher's 2010 points total is still building, with three K&N-fed wins and 10 top-fives out of 18 events so far (his wins all coming at Lake Ozark Speedway). His varying fortune on-track has not kept him out of the title hunt for the 2010 Winged Outlaw Warriors season, and he's currently ranked 17 of more than 100 drivers as he chases a repeat of his 2009 WOW championship.
You might pause to wonder if Fisher would like a couple days of his own to get Jacksonville Speedway under control - it's been his Achilles heel in 2010. Tough crowd or tough track?
"I like the Lake a lot more - Jacksonville is a different kind of animal. It's got a really high bank and a lot of big walls, and it's a little shorter than a quarter-mile so I can't stretch the 410 out as much as I want. It's a tough track."
The second-half of the 2010 WOW season is where Fisher expects folks to feel the weight of his championship 2009 season. "I would really like to thank Rick and Ricky for the opportunity to run their 410 car. I'd also like to thank all my supporters on my 360 car: Ozark Barge & Dock Services Inc., ASAP Properties, Impact Wraps, Impact Sign & Lighting, Fischer's Concrete, Champion Brands, Bill Ferguson Livestock Trucking, K&N Filters, Butler Built Seats, Maxim Racing Chassis, Winters Performance, Bell Helmets, Hoosier Tires, Ramey Dirtworks, TCI Tire Centers and Brian's Gym."
