Courtney Crews visited a very familiar place this weekend for the first time of the 2017 season…. Victory Lane.  Courtney has won many races in her career , but this time she parked the Rice Builders #5 in victory lane at Caroga Creek Speedway for the first time.  It was a good night for the team shaking off some bad luck from the first few starts of the year, and getting back to winning, especially at a track that Courtney holds in high regard.

Caroga Creek is one of the best tracks that we have here in Upstate New York.  The track here is very fast and ran by a true racing family, and I am thankful for all the time and effort the Morans put into their facility for the racers.

While Courtney is a former track champion at Lebanon Valley Kart Speedway, she has been venturing out and racing at new tracks such as Caroga Creek, The Burris Money Series, and recently picked up a top 5 in the Wing Champ Racing Series. 

While the 2017 season is starting to shape up nicely with this week’s win at Caroga, there have been struggles and bad luck early that Courtney hopes she can leave behindas she continues on this season.

A sigh of relief came after crossing the line as the checkered flag dropped at Caroga.  After all the bad luck we have had  these first couple of weeks, it is finally turning around for us.  To win at Caroga means a lot to me because I am racing with very competitive people. This is my first career win at this track, and I cannot be any more proud of myself and my family.

Courtney hope that she can carry the momentum from this weekend’s win into next weekend’s packed schedule of racing. Courtney will be racing on Friday at Dodge City Speedway for The King of Karting Money Series event, and Saturday she will be back at Caroga Creek speedway for The Clash at the Creek.
