So hey there fellas! Welcome to the new year! We got a different team name this time around. But I feel confident that 2018 will be just as good, if not better than how 2017 turned out to be. We tied for the most team wins with 9, with everyone on the team going to victory lane at least once last season. Daytona testing went really good, with our Fords consistently posting top-10 speeds all day long. Stoked to get Daytona Speedweeks started in March, until then we'll prepare for it as much as we can and make sure the competition knows we mean business.

2018 TPR driver lineup:
#17: Jesse Turner - 8 career wins, 2015 champion
#27: Carson Scott - 1 career win (Chicagoland 2 2017)
#94: Caleb Hoffman (R) - 3 career starts (4th place in debut @ South Boston 2017)
#97: Jake Baskinger - 7 career wins, Season 15 champion

Yesterday we took a crack at the Sony Shootout. My first ever time getting to be a part of the action in this race thanks to my pole at Texas World. Overall I'm pleased with how we ran. Jake and I stayed in the top half of the pack all race long, and if only I would've been able to help Jake on the last lap he definitely would've gotten by Dajon one way or another. Btw what a sick save by Luke in turn 3! Glad he carried on after that.

Baskinger - 3rd
Turner - 5th
Martin (affiliate) - 11th

Pole qualifying is complete, and three out of us are locked into the show via speed! Carson's gonna have his work cut out for him unfortunately, though I feel comfortable enough for him to slice his way through the field and get it done. Duel updates coming soon.

Turner - Q5
Hoffman - Q7
Baskinger - Q8
C. Scott - Q26 (?)

The Twin 125's are complete! Now only one more objective to go. Very pleased with how the first duel went for Caleb and myself (checkered flag baby!!!). My respect for Caleb increased with each lap, we communicated really well and it all paid off as a result of it. Duel 2 was a mixed bag of feelings. Carson was in the lead pack all day and ended up 4th. Very smooth race for him! And the one sour moment for both races was Jake being in the wrong place at the wrong time in turns 3 & 4, so he'll need a backup car. Otherwise, get pumped guys. The 22nd annual Great American Race is on the horizon!

Turner: winner of duel 1, starting 3rd (10th Daytona 500 appearance)
C. Scott: 4th in duel 2, starting 10th (2nd Daytona 500 appearance)
Hoffman: 5th in duel 1, starting 11th (1st Daytona 500 appearance)
Baskinger: crashed in duel 2, starting 31st (12th Daytona 500 appearance)

Our Daytona 500 adventure is finally over. Time to recap!
Everyone seemed to get in line really well early in the race, until the first big crash of the day happened in turns 1 & 2. Carson looked like he would make it through unscathed until Josh Crash spun to the bottom of the track and they both made contact. His day would end early. We carried on after that, hanging just fine in the pack, then Sean Perkins and Eric Demax gave each other no room in turn 1 and put Caleb and myself into the wall, giving us damage that would make our cars not be competitive for the rest of the race. Later on, Ryan Acosta got pushed down to the apron going into turn 3 and he didn't blend back in with the pack and caused another crash. This time, Caleb would be knocked out of the race for good. Jake was also involved but received minor damage. Fortunately Jake would still be able to run with the lead draft, keep up with pit stops, and he ended the day with the best finish among us. Rockingham is up next guys!

Baskinger: 4th
Turner: 20th
Hoffman: 28th

Round 2 of Rockingham is in the books! Started off kinda slow at the start of the weekend, but we all eventually got our ground towards the end and it wasn't all that bad of a day for each of us. At least we all raced a clean race and didn't come away with any kind of damage (phew!). I got fortunate to stay on the lead lap during that ill-timed caution, but sadly my car was tougher to handle during that last run and faded to 6th. Heading off to the west coast for California next weekend! Get ready guys!

Turner - 6th
C. Scott - 11th

Just finished racing at California Speedway for the 3rd race of the year. This track demands power and speed, as well as good car control in tight packs. Fortunately for a certain someone on the team, everything fell his way. Jake qualified 3rd and spent much of the first half of the race in the top-3. Although his crew had a bad pit stop late in the going, even that couldn't stop how good his car was, and he steadily moved his way through traffic until he got to DJ to overtake him for the lead. At the end, Jake gets his 8th career win in the SCS! Me and the Aflac team put together a 4th place run. Unfortunately Caleb and Carson got involved in the same crash off turn 2, eliminating Carson and hindering Caleb's car for the day.
Btw my prayers are with Charles Sandfer and Hayden Kline, after their horrible crash on the front-stretch. They're good guys, but they're tough as nails and I wish them well on their recoveries and getting back in a race car as soon as possible.

Baskinger - WIN
Turner - 4th
Hoffman - 30th
C. Scott - 34th

"The series went down to Georgia, lookin' for a checkered flag to steal..."
Yes, our 4th race of the season, as well as my milestone 200th career start, would be at the legendary Atlanta Motor Speedway for some quick speeds and tire wear that's like no other track. Jake got an amazing jump at the start, and was in his own zip code for the first few runs of the race. But he would soon be faced with a swarm of fellow Fords after a yellow before the halfway mark. Dom Caps, Matthew Rodriguez, Cody Llamas, Steven Jenkins, and myself would each take turns leading the race up until the final green flag run. But when Jenkins unexpectedly came down pit road with 3 to go, that took us all by surprise. Caps would get the win, with Jake following close behind. Nice job by Caleb taking his first Rookie of the Race award away from Dylan Schwallenberg in the final laps! Carson would quietly crack into the top-15 at the end, being the second car one lap down after Jenkins' troubles.
Glad that all of us finished inside the top-15 with barely any scratches on our rides. This race weekend turned out okay! Going to the Volunteer State next for some short track thrills! Smile

Baskinger - 2nd
Turner - 7th
Hoffman - 12th

Our 5th race of the year brings us to a track some of us haven't been to in a while, and that a couple of us have never seen before. It's Baer Field baby! Me lapping everyone but DJ Kurtis in the first segment was the good moment of the night for me. But we all advanced through our segments and made the final segment. I immediately took off, but I couldn't find anywhere to hide as Jeffery Finguy ended up passing me. Carson sadly got spun by him as well and couldn't bounce back from that. I managed to work my way back by Finguy again. Then... came the moment I hate to recall lol. Chris Dodd and Jake were playing rough coming out of turn 4. Dodd ended up getting turned around, and I was the unfortunate soul who ran into him first. Still earned my best finish at this track, but it sucks to think of what could've been. Great job by Caleb getting a top-10 run and winning ROTR for the second straight race.

Btw kudos to Silverfox being able to drive away after barrel rolling 7 times in the first segment Shocked Thumbs up

We're back from racing on the dirt at the Springfield mile in Illinois! Things got off to a great start early, with Jake swinging it three wide to move by Jeffery Lynn and me for the lead. He slayed the field, trapping most drivers a lap down, when an untimely caution hit the track. Carson was one of the beneficiaries of the yellow so that gave him a good chance as well. Sadly, Lynn's car turned out to be stronger when it counted and passed Jake with a handful of laps to go. But it was nice that a few of us ended up with strong finishes despite all the craziness that happened out there on the dirt.

Baskinger - 2nd
