Comments:Gorgeous day for racing today with crisp morning temps and mostly sunny conditions – 0% chance of rain! We’ll be looking for the absence of bad luck like we had last week. Practice rounds were marginal as track surface was not good. Car was not as good as we hoped so we’ll continue making adjustments through the heat race into the feature.

6:40pm – Heat race was mediocre. Car was tight and Rob just couldn’t make the outside groove work.

8:18pm – Feature started out OK and there was a lot of side-by-side racing up front. Rob was making headway in the inside row but then in turn 3 and 4 something happened with the 27 who spun sideways in the low groove and Rob just couldn’t get him cleared and there was contact with the right front tire. Rob pitted and we found right front damage (broken strut rod and sway bar link). By the time we changed the strut rod the race went green again and Rob was caught in the pits until the next caution came putting us about 6 laps down. Rob finished the race and there was 1 more caution I believe. At least the damage is just bolt on parts. We’ll be back next week for the double features event looking to perform at a higher level.
