Tink Reedy Garners Top Twenty Finish at Martinsville..
Oct 2, 2007 - updated Oct 2nd, 2007 11:32am
Web posted by Kenny Lang

Making the field for the Bailey's 300 at Martinsville Speedway every year is a pretty great accomplishment. The best Late Model Stock Car racers in the nation make the trip to the beautiful .526-mile oval for the annual prestigious event. 108 cars took time trials on Saturday afternoon and only the top 22 were locked in after the session was over. Tink elated the Reedy Racing crew by placing the Rod Shop, The Lube Center, Pizza Den, Pro Image Graphics, Petroleum Marketers, Inc., Mobility Plus of VA Inc., RacersLounge.com, RC Restoration, UCFW Local 400, Clark's Automotive Racing Engines, HARCOR Racing Fabrication Chevrolet Monte Carlo 13th on the starting grid with a lap of 20.561 seconds.

Making the field through time trials allowed the crew to watch the four 25-lap qualifying races that fill out the rest of the 42 car starting field from the grandstands. Carnage usually prevails in the heats and it is reassuring knowing your car is solidly in the feature before they start.

Tink was very confident in his race set up heading into the 200-lap feature. The race started around 3:30pm on Sunday September 30th with Tink trying to avoid trouble and make it to the mandatory halfway break for adjustments. The car was very good during the first quarter of the race with Tink moving into the top ten. Patience was the plan for Tink but a car behind him was not on the same agenda.

Heading into turn one around lap 65, the 00 car plowed into the rear bumper of Tink's car, lifting the rear wheels off the ground and spinning the veteran driver. Tink lost a lap trying to get the car refired and rejoined the field.

The halfway break gave the crew a chance to adjust on the car for the second half of the event. Tink stayed out of trouble and gave the leaders the courtesy to race late in the going. Considering the spin and going a lap down, a strong 18th place finish was a decent result in the race. Tink was the first car one lap down at the end of the race.

"The team gave me a great car today". Tink explained. "We feel we had a definite top ten car and maybe a top five contender as well". "If we would not have been dumped going into turn one, we could have raced really hard for a great finishing position."

Definite plans for the remaining big money Late Model Stock Car races have not been finalized by the Reedy Racing Team. Keep checking www.tinkreedy.net for info on our next race in the 2007 season.
