    Crimmins wins in Renmark
    Saturday January 4th Crimmins racing headed to Renmark Speedway to contest a round of the SALMA series.
    The weekend started on a bad note when getting the Ruston Engineering , Hytek Concrete Products Rocket ready to load up a bolt broke in the bell housing which intern bent a shaft and broke the starter motor . At this point we thought it was all over for the weekend but with Brian Raymond from Raymond motorsport keen to remove the bell housing and Bill Miller organizing Alan Letts to open his shed to get the part we needed it was looking possible that we might make it.
    After 4 hours with the help of Crew Craig and Steve and Brian the team loaded the Australian Multiskill s10 just in time to make the 3 hour trip to the Riverland.
    Starting the first heat on a very dry and dusty track out of p4 Mat dropped one spot to finish fifth in what was a difficult track to do any passing with very low vision due to the dust.
    The second heat the Auto pro Murray Bridge , Fuchs s10 had a p2 starting position and got the jump to lead the whole heat and take the win the first win for 2014 for Crimmins racing. That put us out of p2 for the feature with the s67 of Steve Vaughan from p1 it was going to be a tough race with the size of the track making passing hard.
    The start of the feature the s67 got the jump and lead into the first turn and pulled a couple of car lengths from the s10 of Mat Crimmins so it was time to knuckle down and put the pressure on the s67. With the s10 getting plenty of drive on the freshly prepared track and an shock setting change by crew chief Craig Mat was getting awesome drive off turn four and put the move on the s67 down the front straight into turn one and took the lead only to have the s5 of Luke Raymond come to a stop and bring the yellows on, so it was back to p2. On the restart Mat was putting the pressure on Steve again and made almost the identical pass to take the lead again and hold onto the win. The first feature win for the new S10 RACIN Tyres & Acc, Genesis Race Shocks Rocket.
    Crimmins Racing would like to thank it's hard working crew Craig , Steve & Lisa all the competitors Riverland speedway and All of our sponsors and supporters.
