Cold Track and Cold Tires End Robertson’s Night Early

Winston-Salem, NC. --

Heading into Ryan Robertson and the #31 Savage Energy Chevrolet’s seventh start in the UARA Stars, Robertson Motorsports was confident in the car and the driver. Unfavorable track conditions at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, NC caused their day to end early.

Robertson was 16th fastest during the first of the day’s two practices. As the sun hid behind the clouds the track was unable to warm up as the second practice began. The Savage Energy car was running fast times on old tires so they decided to bring the car in to put sticker tires on it to make a qualifying run.

With the outside temperature being so cold it took longer than expected for the tires to warm up. After scuffing the tires on his first lap back out on the track Robertson began to make a qualifying run. When he headed into turn one the rear end snapped. Robertson pressed the brake down to the fire wall but the car continued to gain speed.

The car began to spin and the back left side went into the outside wall compressing the whole section of the car. The impact caused the car to go airborne, once the car landed it continued to spin hitting the front of the car.

“It was one of the worst hits I have ever had,” said Robertson. “When I was hitting the brakes and not slowing down it was like I was sliding on ice. We will get to work on the car so we will be ready to go next weekend.”

Saturday, October 25 is the UARA Stars last race for the 2008 season at Concord Motorsports Park in Concord, NC. Robertson Motorsports is currently sponsored by Savage Energy, Carolina Wood Floors, WSSU Motorsport Management, WCWG CW 20 and WSJS 600/1200AM.
