Loftin Races to Honor Kenny Minter at 2nd Annual Memorial Race

Lexington, NC. --

Saturday marked the second ASA Southern Modified Tour Race as well as the 2nd Annual Kenny Minter Sr. Memorial 150 at Franklin County Motor Speedway, in Callaway, VA. Brian Loftin and the #23 QMF Solutions Chevrolet were ready to race, not just to win, but to honor Kenny Minter.

“This race meant a lot to us, Kenny meant a lot to us,” said Loftin. “We are glad that Kenny Jr. is a part of our team. He is an incredible crew member and we know that his dad would be very proud of him.”

Loftin started the day off fast. The car was tuned and ready to go. The team was very pleased with his qualifying run, just barely getting edged out of the pole position by .001 of a second to take the outside pole spot. Most of the field qualified within 3/10 of a second of each other. With times so close the fans in the stands knew they were in for a good race.

“The crew has worked hard making sure the car was ready to run this weekend,” said Loftin. “I could not run as well as I do week after week without all of their hard work.”

The top six qualifiers redrew for starting positions putting Loftin in the third spot. With only two cautions in the 150 lap race there was plenty of good racing action. With Jason Myers pulling ahead of the pack Loftin battled hard with LW Miller, Frank Fleming and Brian King throughout most of the race for the remaining top five spots. At the end of the race Loftin had to hold off Myers to finish 4th.

This race also marked the first race for the future, third generation, driver in the Loftin family. Loftin’s son, Carson, watched his dad race for the first time from the comforts of the team’s motor home. Carson thoroughly enjoyed himself watching all the fast cars zip down the back stretch.

“Racing is more than just a sport to us,” said Team Owner, and Loftin’s father, Bobby Loftin. “It is about spending time with our family doing something we all love.”

Loftin is currently 10th after two races in the ASA and is still holding on to the 3rd spot in the Whelen Southern Modified Tour. His next race will be on July 19th at Dillon Motor Speedway in Dillon, SC. This is a make-up race for the last race that was rained out there in June.

Loftin is currently sponsored by QMF Solutions and L & R Transmissions
