The NASCAR Camping World Truck and Cup Series’ took on the Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track on Monday afternoon after both Saturday and Sunday’s events were postponed due to rain.
Anthony Alfredo and his No. 38 Dude Wipes Ford Mustang sustained heavy damage in an unavoidable on-track incident in Stage 1, to which the No. 38 would not be able to continue and finished 39th.
Anthony Alfredo took the green flag from the 29th position in Monday’s 250-lap event on the Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track.
On Lap 41 of Stage 1, just as Alfredo was beginning to get a handle on the ever-changing dirt track, an incident occurred in front of him to which the No. 38 Dude Wipes Ford Mustang was unable to avoid. Alfredo’s race car would sustain extensive damage that proved to be too much to overcome as Alfredo would be forced to retire his No. 38 Dude Wipes Ford Mustang early and would be listed in 39th at the end of the race.
ANTHONY ALFREDO. NO. 38 DUDE WIPES FORD MUSTANG. FINISHED 39.“I’m really disappointed that our day ended so early. I hate it for Dude Wipes, Front Row Motorsports, Ford Performance and everyone that supports us. I was feeling really optimistic about today – the guys did an awesome job and we had a solid car and I felt like racing on dirt was an opportunity to level the playing field for us to go out there and sneak a solid finish; but there was a huge wreck and I couldn’t turn right to avoid it on the dirt. The front tires just slid and went straight and I couldn’t drive around it. So, that was really frustrating and it stinks to end the day early, but we’ll just take an off-week, a deep breath and go on to Martinsville in a couple of weeks recharged.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
