The Infront motor sports #63 Late model sponsored by Specialty Paint Works, Bud and Tracy, and Fire snacks had a good start to the night. The car ran great in both practice sessions. we made little changes to get ready for Qualifying.
The track was fast Dan turned a 14.2 and was 6th out of 11 still making the A main.
In the A heat Dan started outside pole next to good friend Kane Thomasson #89. They had a good battle for 8 laps which ended with a photo finish of Dan taking the win by a nose. ( it was a nail bitter)
Dan and Kane both said it was the most fun they have had getting to battle each other for the win.
Once again there were little changes made to get ready for the 30 lap main event.
Dan started 2 row inside on the 2nd lap a car got lose and gathered it up but gave Dan a good opportunity to go high at the same time another car went low which made them 3 wide and didn't end well for Dan. He ended up in the wall and brought out the first yellow. Dan came into the pits to make sure the car was ok. It had little damage to the right front.
Once again the green flag came with Dan in last place Since he came in the pits. The car was fast Dan made his way to 4th place and was working hard on 3rd when the 2nd yellow came out. After the yellow the tires had heat cycled and the car was (JUNK).
Dan settled into 5th while under the yellow the car had started to get hot so with 3 laps to go the water temp got to 250 degrees and he had to pull off. We got the car cooled down in a hurry. Final finish was 8th
So once again we are baffled by the over heating but have 2 weeks to figure it out. The next race is May 30th we hope to see you all out there cheering on the Infront #63 team.
We would also like to give a special thanks to Bud he is one of our sponsors, we appreciate all the help.
See you in 2 weeks.
