June 19, 2006: A more detailed write up and pictures will follow shortly. Here's a quick re-cap of the 47 Racing Team Weekend at Oswego Speedway in Oswego, NY. The team had a great weekend up north as they had a top five finish in both of the feature events. During the make-up feature event that was rained out on May 13th...Sean started the race in 6th place and brought the #47 Lentini Auto Salvage/Pleasure Pools Stealth Midget in 4th place. To start out the "regular" events for the evening...Sean started in the last row of the first heat race. As the green flag dropped Sean took the lead on the first lap and led the entire 10-Lap Heat race to take the win. Starting 8th in the 14-Car field for the second feature event, Sean brought the car home in 3rd place. The car was a good enough car to win, but the tires went away about 10 laps into the race.
June 10, 2006: Sean and the team did not have the type of trip to North Carolina that they wanted to. Out of the trailer the car was not handling as Sean wanted it to. He time trialed 9th fastest. On the 9th lap of the feature, two cars ahead of Sean got together. Sean locked up the brakes trying to stop in time. Rick Fedrizzi started to flip and flipped into the side of the #47 Stealth Midget. Although Sean was unhurt, the car was. Sean had to park the car for the rest of the night.
June 7, 2006: Sean and the team are ready to go for this weekend! Just a reminder...They will be racing at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory NC this weekend for a 35-Lap Main Event.

Seekonk Speedway: From 9th to 5th in Heat Race & 8th to 3rd in Feature
May 27, 2006 - Northeast Ford Focus Midgets - Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk, MA:
Sean Carman Motorsports had a great weekend at the 1/3 Mile Seekonk Speedway. Although being held up a rain delay all of the events were run. Sean started 9th in the second heat race. As the green flag dropped, he moved the #47 Lentini Auto Salvage, Pleasure Pools Stealth directly to the top of the Speedway. The car worked great and finished 5th. As feature time came, the Team debated on making a few changes as the Sun went down and the temperature got cooler. Sean started 8th in the 19-Car field and that's exactly what he wanted....the outside row. Again, as the green flag dropped and everyone moved to the bottom of the speedway, they left the high-line clean and clear the the #47 car. Sean ran the outside of the speedway for about the first 5 laps and saw himself in 3rd position and climbing. All of a sudden....Sean moved off the bottom of the speedway. The motor starting to spit and sputter, Sean thought he had a fuel pickup problem. On the bottom of the speedway...Sean held the 3rd position directly on the 2nd place runner, Ryan Osborne's bumper. A few laps later....the motor again started to spit and sputter. Sean finished the 25-Lap Main event in the 3rd Position.

Concord Motorsports Park: "Stars of Short Track Shootout"
With the weather not looking good for the Northeast race at Adirondack Speedway in Lowville, NY.....Sean made the decision to head down to Concord Motorsports Park for the "Starts of Short Track Shootout" 50Lap Race. And what a good decision it was.....as on the way to North Carolina, Sean got a call from a fellow competitor in the Northeast and was told the race has been cancelled do to bad weather.
3 Sessions of practice was not enough.....at least for Sean. The car was not working the way he needed it to. Sean ended up time trialing 7th. Starting the feature event in 7th position, Sean ran in 6th position about the entire race. A late caution put Sean in 3rd position. On Lap 47 there was a restart....only 3-Laps to go. Going into turn one with only 3 laps left, everyone wanted to win.....Sean got hit in the left rear tire and it was taken off the car. Luckily, Sean did not Flip, but his night was done.

The cars were held in the staging lane, hoping the rain would stop, but that wasn't the case and the feature event was cancelled.

Bridgeport, NJ (July 23,2005)
Weekend of Bad Luck: Sean started off the night by starting 8th in the 3rd Sportsman Heat. The heat was a good race between Sean and Mark Forte Jr. and by the last lap coming out of turn four, Sean was side by side with Mark, only to be beaten by half a car length. Starting 14th in the feature, Sean fell back 2 spots on the initial green. By lap 10 Sean was in the 5th position racing with Richie Pratt Jr. for the 4th place spot. Going down the backstretch, Sean was burnt with Oil and was told over the radio to pull off the track. Unfortunately, Sean was done for the night, although he had a very fast car.
The entire crew thought they lost the motor, but come to find out the Oil Filter adapter came loose and the Oil filter seal was blown off the filter, which let the oil come pouring out. The car is already fixed and ready to go for the "Walt Chernokal Memorial" this Wed, July 27. Also in store for this Wed, will be Sean's first Modified Start where he will try to qualify with the "Big-Boys". See everyone at the track!
