Friday Night Rough Night for Team Crum Racing

Altamahaw, NC. --

Jake Crum and the #1 Chevrolet ended the night where they started, in 12th, which was good considering the day they had in the 10th UARA race of the season at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC.

During the first practice of the afternoon, Jake was 14th fastest out of the 25 cars. The crew worked on the car in between sessions and had him running second during the second practice. After qualifying was delayed for an hour waiting for emergency vehicles then a rain delay during the middle of qualifying, Crum turned the 12th fastest time.

“Jake was quick all day in turns one and two but had trouble getting the line in turns three and four,” said Nick Hutchins, Crew Chief. “We were hoping to have it figured out by the time qualifying started.”

Crum did not stay in 12th very long. By the first caution of the race on lap 23 he was running 9th. On lap 29 he passed the #31 car and was running 8th. On the restart on lap 39 Crum was spun out causing minor damage to the front of the car. Crum headed to the pits to make sure there was no serious damage to the car. He restarted in the back of the pack.

By lap 60 Crum had broken back into the top 15. He continued to move forward in the field but the engine was running hotter than normal and he could not get all the horsepower needed out of his car.

“The engine was running between 250 to 260 during the long runs,” said David Laws, the team’s tire specialist. “We were praying for cautions to give his engine a chance to cool down, so we could last the entire race.”

On lap 127 the #3 car, a lapped car, started to get loose coming out of turn four. The #32 car could not get around him and left Crum nowhere to go. The three cars were caught up together. More damage was done to the front of Crum’s #1 Chevrolet. Again, Crum headed to the pits. The crew removed the hood and made sure the rest of the front of the car was still intact. He made it back out before the pace car putting him in the 19th position.

Crum charged hard for the remainder of the race and was able to make it back up to 12th before the green-white-checkered flag waved.

Crum is still first in points in the UARA with 1 pole, 2 wins, and 7 top five finishes. His next race will be on August 16th at Franklin County Speedway in Callaway, VA.
