APRIL 16TH UPDATE
“ALAN SAGI NAMED NEW PILOT OF THE NINE”
Opening night throws the Leinbach Motorsports team a curve. The new black “NINE” appeared to be on a successful maiden voyage as driver Randy Stoudt drove to the lead in the feature at Baps Speedway. A late race caution brought Bobby Beard to do battle with the “NINE”. Bobby eventually took the lead and we appeared to have a 2nd place finish locked up. A vibration caused Randy to slow after the white flag and drop from contention.
It is with sad news that we must announce the retirement of driver Randy Stoudt due to recurring symptoms from a crash In early 2017. The entire Leinbach Motorsports wish Randy all the best in his future endeavors. Randy, while not the longest tenured driver in the “NINE” cars, was certainly the most successful. Randy won races at every track we competed regularly and brought home runner up point finishes on 3 occasions. In 2016, Randy won an amazing 6 of 13 races at Susky and the only race at the Grove that year. He will be missed.
The ever popular and accomplished driver Alan Sagi has been named to replace Randy. Alan brings with him a wealth of experience and success. Alan has met with the entire team and seems to be a good fit. We will begin our season together at Lincoln on April 21st.
Leinbach Motorsports will again use the family plan as Ross Leinbach has assumed the driving duties of the red “NINE” as he competes for the rookie of the year title at Baps Speedway for 2018. Ross joins his father Ronnie, uncle Russ, and cousin Russ Jr. as a driver in the family owned cars
While difficult, the crew has just gone through the toughest season any team could endure and appear to be even stronger and dedicated to give Alan and Ross the type of race cars they deserve.
