Bad Luck Plagues Ransone: Accident Ends Promising Night Early

Asheboro, NC: --

After a good day of testing on Friday and solid practice times on Saturday Lucas Ransone driver of the #00 KRG Chevrolet was ready to get to racing. Unfortunately he would not be able to finish the race at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, NC.

Ransone began the night with a tight car after the team put new tires on for qualifying. Despite the problem Ransone was still able to pull off the 7th fastest time. The crew immediately went to work to fix the problem.

When it came time for the race to start the car was running better and everyone on the team was looking forward to a good race.

Ransone got stuck behind a slow car when the green flag waved and was forced back to 10th. He did not stay there for long. By lap 9 of the 100 lap race he had already gained two spots. By lap 25 he was up two more.

At just over a third of the way into the race Ransone was spun out coming out of turn two when another car tried to pass him. With the cars running so close together coming out of the turn, two more cars hit Ransone with one of them coming to a stop on top of Ransone’s hood.

Despite the large amount of damage sustained to the car, Ransone was able to walk away unharmed.

“It is frustrating having things like this, that are out of my control, continue to happen week after week,” said Ransone. “We won’t let it discourage us. The crew has been great making sure we always have a good car to run in. We will be back here again next weekend hopefully our luck will turn by then.”

Ransone will be racing in the Mason Dixon 250 at South Boston Speedway on Saturday, October 25. He is currently sponsored by KRG.
