“[The win] feels so good. The last [race] in Atlantic City was rough, less rough on me but more for [the crew]. Brett, Kyle, Pricey, Boomer – these guys are absolutely rebuilding this car every single time when you have a rough race like that. Here, to bring it home clean after two solid days of driving, it’s such a good thing especially with a double-header — it feels good. It’s pretty high speed here on the front straightaway and diving into this oval corner, there’s a real focus on the brake release in order to not upset the car and slide up hill. In the next one, there are little pot holes that you look out for. Then you come into the right-hander before the jump, and it feels like complete ice with one patch of grip you have to get that reminds me a lot like snow driving. In the last corner, it’s all about saving tires, so each section of the track there’s a critical thing you have to focus on.”
No. 41 OBERTO CIRCLE K BEETLE GRC
  • FINALS: Started 3 // Finished 2
  • SEMIFINAL A: Started 2 // Finished 2
  • Heat 3B: Started 3 // Finished 4
  • Heat 2B: Started 2 // Finished 2
  • Still solidly holds lead over the field for GRC Championship despite challenges in heat races
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 1 / 10 (687 pts.)
“The day’s done, and we were able to salvage second out of [the race]. We definitely didn’t start off the day very good. There was a lot of drama in between to keep it exciting, but we were able to gain lots of points and we still have a good lead [in the championship standings]. Tomorrow, we’re looking at the same plan – we’ll be safe and collect more points, and eat more Oberto Beef Jerky!”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
