November 17, 2018 - Nick O'Neil Captures a Trio of Top-5 Finishes in Desert Thunder Natonals
1For the second weekend in a row, Nick was behind the wheel of a Shannon Motorsports ride at the Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande, Arizona for the annual Desert Thunder Nationals. Friday night, Nick won his heat race from the pole and then after redrawing 12th for the main event, he drove up to a solid third place finish. Saturday night, he started 7th and raced his way up to 2nd in his heat race before redrawing 8th for the main and again, charging up to a solid third place finish. Sunday's finale saw Nick win his heat from his fifth starting position and then race forward from his 10th starting spot to come home fourth when the final checkered flag of the season flew. All in all a great weekend with three top five finishes. Thanks to Chris, DJ and everyone with Shannon Motorsports for the help this weekend!

November 10, 2018 - O'Neil Competes in Duel in the Desert at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
1
Very happy with our performance at the Duel in the Desert at the dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this past weekend. After being out of the car for over a year and competing against 207 IMCA Modified drivers, we are happy with a 21st place finish in the Saturday main event. (Mike Spieker photo)

Thursday night, Nick ran up front, but eventually ran fourth in his heat and third in the b-main, missing the feature.
Friday night, he ran third in our heat, then came home second in his b, making the main and then moved forward from 27th to 21st in the feature. And Saturday, he won his b-main from 4th, locking him into the main event. From there we started 23rd and finished 21st on a hard to pass on racing surface.

A huge thanks to the Shannon family for all their help and efforts this weekend. We really appreciate it.
Thanks to all of our other sponsors and everyone else that helps as well!
