Joyce Falls Victim to Early Incident at Dillon
Apr 9, 2012 - updated Apr 9th, 2012 10:53am
Web posted by

Mooresville, NC --

(April 9, 2012)
  A fierce battle early on in the UARA Eggs-traordinary 150 at Dillon Motor Speedway and a short-track tangle that soon followed in front of rookie contender Cory Joyce left him with an early exit from Saturday night's shootout. A multi-car incident in turn three just 22 laps into the event collected Joyce after he lost communications with his spotter. With no guidance and unable to see through the smoke, he suffered terminal damage to the front of the No. 20 LandAirSea Chevrolet and finished the night in the garage.
Promising practice times and a good racing setup on worn tires gave Joyce confidence heading into the qualifying session on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, his Impala did not handle as well on the sticker tires used for qualifying, and the 20-year-old driver wrestled a loose race car to the 23rd starting position. Hoping that the condition would soon remedy itself following changes made by Crew Chief Clay Rogers, Joyce settled in after the drop of the green flag to ride it out and put some laps on his tires.
Dodging the first caution within the first few laps of the race, Joyce continued to log laps and make a charge toward the front of the field. His progress came to a halt on Lap 22 when he attempted to steer his No. 20 machine around several cars spinning in front of him. Making an abrupt turn to his left knocked his radio onto the floorboard and Joyce lost all communications with his spotter. Going into the smoke blind, the nose of Joyce's car soon connected with another car. After pulling into the pits, the team determined they were unable to repair damage to the front end and radiator of the LandAirSea Impala, leaving Joyce with a 24th place finish.
Joyce on the UARA Eggs-traordinary 150 at Dillon Motor Speedway: "It was pretty obvious that patience was not used tonight by several of the competitors; I think everyone was trying to win the race on the first lap. Once they started wrecking in front of me, my radio fell down to the floor and I didn't have any help from the spotter without it. From there I couldn't see either and just ran right into someone. It's really unfortunate that we had to pack up so early. Next time we'll just have to work harder to avoid the trouble and the damage to our car."
Race Highlights:
  • Joyce made his third career UARA-STARS start on Saturday night at Dillon Motor Speedway; first at the .4-mile oval.
  • CJR welcomed interim crew chief Clay Rogers to the team, with Andy Loden returning to the lead role next weekend at Rockingham.
  • Fighting loose handling conditions on sticker tires, Joyce qualified 23rd.
  • Collected in a lap 22 accident in turn three, Joyce and his team were unable to repair front end damage to his No. 20 LandAirSea Impala, relegating him to a 24th place finish.
  • Ronnie Basset, Jr. claimed the Eggs-traordinary 150 victory. Dillon Bassett and Scott Turlington rounded out the top-three finishers.
  • Next on the schedule for Joyce and the rest of the UARA-STARS competitors will be 75 laps of racing at Rockingham Speedway on Saturday, April 14th.
