Cory Joyce Bounces Back in Double Header at Concord Speedway

Mooresville, NC --

First Trip of the Season to Concord produces Third and Fourth Place Finishes for Joyce

(August 2, 2011) -- Several previous attempts dating back to April of this year to race at Concord Speedway have ended in puddles of rain, but weather held off for Cory Joyce on Saturday night at the half-mile tri-oval. Crew chief Chuck Meyers, Joyce and his Cory Joyce Racing team prepped their No. 33 Chevy Impala for competition in the Wilburn Auto Body Late Model Stock division at Concord this week based on the quick setups they'd found during practice sessions at the track earlier this season. Though they'd never been able to race due to cancellations for weather, the team knew they would have a good piece to work with.
Qualifying mid-pack for the first of two 30-lap events, Joyce immediately found after the drop of the green flag that his Impala was really loose and fought to keep it off the wall. Struggling to make it to lap 30 with no incident, Joyce was able to finish in the fourth spot. For the second of the two feature events, the field was inverted for the start, putting Joyce on the outside of the front row. Meyers and his crew made adjustments to tighten up Joyce's Chevy during the intermission, and sent the 19-year-old back into battle.
The handling for the start of the second feature mirrored that of the first and Joyce held a steady wheel, aiming to steer clear of any trouble on the track. Mid-way through the race, Joyce couldn't hold on as the rear end of his machine stepped out in turn one and looped around, bringing out a caution that would allow the driver to bring his car to the attention of his crew and make a few final adjustments. This opportunity tightened up the car enough for Cory to click off times as fast as the leaders in the closing laps and boosted him into third place at the checkers.
"We've been trying to race at Concord for several months now and finally we weren't rained out. In the previous trips when we were able to practice the car was really fast, so we were hoping a similar setup would work this time around," Joyce analyzed following the twin-30 lap contests. "But we ended up bouncing between loose and tight during practice and then continued to be loose during both races. We just stuck with it and ended up closing with a fast car in the final race and took it home in one piece."
Joyce plans join competition once again in late August with his No. 33 Chevy Impala. Stay tuned to CoryJoyce.com
