The McKenna Motorsports team was ultra-busy from June 13-18 in lucrative events across the states of Kansas and Iowa. Things kicked off out at Belleville High Banks in Belleville, Kansas where Charlie McKenna pulled double duty with both the XR Super Series and the Malvern Bank Series in the 'Belleville Dirt Nationals.' In XR action, Charlie finished fifth in his heat race and seventeenth in Monday's $20,000 to win feature on the monstrous 1/2-mile speedplant, while he ran second in his heat race and eighteenth in Tuesday's $40,000 to win main event on the tiny 1/4-mile infield oval.

Behind the wheel of his familiar #22 entry with the Malvern Bank Series at Belleville, Charlie placed fifth in his heat race on Monday evening prior to claiming an eleventh place effort in the A-Main, which shelled out a $5,000 payday. In a similar $5,000 to win SLMR battle on the 1/4-mile track on Tuesday night, the Ames, Iowa standout finished fourth in his heat race, led the first eight circuits of the feature, and eventually crossed underneath the checkers in the tenth finishing position.

Following a few days away from the racetrack, the team rolled into CJ Speedway in Columbus Junction, Iowa and Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa over the weekend for two additional SLMR showdowns. On Friday at CJ, Charlie placed third in his heat race prior to steering to a strong fifth place performance in the $3,000 to win headliner behind only victor Chad Holladay, Jason Hahne, Luke Goedert, and Justin Kay. At Corning on Saturday in the $3,500 to win weekend finale, Charlie wound up seventh in his stacked heat race before passing eight competitors during the 25-lapper en route to a steady eleventh place showing.

On Thursday night in the weekend lid lifter at Kossuth County Speedway in Alogna, Iowa, Charlie McKenna timed in second fastest overall during qualifying and ran third in his heat race prior to rolling off from the pole position in the 25-lap feature. Charlie was then running in the second position during the contest when a broken throttle linkage dropped him to a disappointing fourteenth place effort.

At Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa on Friday evening, Charlie placed second in his heat race and led most of the 25-lap main event before settling for a strong runner-up performance behind only victor Tad Pospisil. In the weekend finale on Saturday at Off Road Speedway in Norfolk, Nebraska, Charlie ran sixth in heat race action, but later blasted past seven competitors during the 30-lapper to salvage a hard-fought ninth place showing.
