The competition was tough on Saturday as 17 Super Trucks showed up to win on the hottest day of racing this season. The BlueDevil Products HMR Chevy was chasing a tight handling truck in first practice.
“We changed to a smaller sway bar, made several track bar adjustments and finally got the truck loosened up. unfortunately we were a little too loose in qualifying – earning an 11th place start on the grid – a far cry from our last qualifying effort in Dillon of 3rd” said Hambone
“It was tough trying to chase the setup down in the heat – we weren’t far off – Ryan was doing a good job adjusting. We just never quite nailed it.”
Ham picked up a couple spots only to give them back on the final restart when the 99 of Kevin Parsons almost got wrecked in front of him. ” We got lined up on the outside of the 45 when our spot should have been the inside – We earned that pass so I’m not sure how the speedway officials missed that one – I shouldn’t have been caught behind Kevin when he bobbled. And we couldnt come down on the 45 to get around Kevin (see video). We’ll have to do a better job of tracking our position if the track cant keep up with it. I feel good about the run but I’ll be frustrated until we can crack that top 5. That being said we were all happy to have finished a race thereby ending our string of bum luck finishes.” HMR would like to thank our sponsor Michael Schrecker, and the BluDevil Products Crew. “I feel confident now we can catch a wave of solid finishes. See you at the track!”
Or next race is next Thursday, June 12 at 530pm in Myrtle Beach. – HMR
