H7 Racing Team Gearing Up For 2018
(April 19, 2018) The 2018 season is upon us and the H7 Racing Team is ready for another year racing under the IMCA banner throughout Illinois and Iowa. While continuing to utilize an LG2 by Jimmy Owens chassis and powered with a Friesen Performance 604 Crate Engine, the team is looking at racing weekly in Donnellson, Iowa and Burlington, Iowa. After using the 2017 season to fine tune their LG2, the team has made some changes with the new car and are excited to finally get back on track and running up front for 2018.
McGee, entering his 46th year of racing and over half of those in the H7, has captured championships at both 34 Raceway and Knox County Speedway along with many other wins over the years. In 2018, The team is excited to welcome back some great sponsors and also adding some new sponsors for this upcoming season. One of the added sponsors for 2018 is Sam’s Body Shop of New London, IA, Specializing in Late Model HD Rebuilding as well as Auto Sales. Another Added sponsor for this year is Dirt Stars Racing Products of Taylor Ridge, IL. We would like to Thank the Smiths for helping us out at the end of 2017 and look forward to working with them more in 2018.
This weekend, The H7 Racing Team is planning on getting the season kicked off at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, IA; after last weekend was cancelled due to rain and cold weather. Although, with the temperature looking to be in the 40’s on Friday night, we might push our opening night back another week. On Saturday, The Annual Slocum 50 in Burlington is on the schedule, but we will be there spectating. Modifieds are not on the schedule and this is a race we like to attend and give our support.
