Speedweeks Updates

Friday, February 6th - The Enlyten Vision Racing Team was again in the top three in practice times all day with solid long runs showing a good stable race car for the evening race at hand. Tanner Berryhill started in his fourth qualifying position with strong possibilities of taking the win. Upon the drop of the green flag the Enlyten number 17 passed the third place car around the top in turns one and two. The second place car of Jerrick Johnson and full time NASCAR Nationwide Hendricks' driver Landon Cassill took off to a two car advantage. The number 17 charged hard and made the quick inside move on Jerrick Johnson to take the 2nd position on lap number two. It was clear that Tanner Berryhill had the his car on the mark and was closing Landon Cassill quickly to take the top spot away. After the pass on Johnson the yellow flag flew for a hard multi car crash in turns three and four. Heavy damage and debris scattered the corner as workers worked hard to clean the wreck. Upon the lap three restart Berryhill made a hard charge upon Cassill and looked hard inside Cassill coming out of turn two. As Berryhill made the move the car went out of control and spun to the inside retaining wall out of turn two bringing out caution number two. It appeared the car spun for no real reason until learning the car had a mechanical clutch failure causing it to spin and the Enlyten number 17 was finished for the night.

Saturday, February 7th - Upon repairing the clutch the Vision Racing team worked hard to get the hard charging Ford Fusion number 17 of Tanner Berryhill back on top of the speed charts. It was a successful test session prior to Saturday nights race with the Enlyten speed machine at the top of the charts in speeds. The field will be set by previous nights finishing position putting the number 17 deep in the field of tonight's race starting in the 23 position. Upon the green flag the team agreed to have a strong finish and try to avoid any problems coming through the field from deep back. Berryhill charged forward passing a car with every lap. upon lap 10 the second caution flag fell after a hard impact with the back straightaway inside retaining wall by previous nights winner, Jimmy Warren. Upon the restart the number 17 was in the 16 position advancing seven positions. On lap 22 with three to go the Enlyten back Ford Fusion was charging and finished a strong 14th.

Sunday - Testing only no races. Fastest car in practice by 1/10th of a second.

Monday, February 9th - With a good strong performance Saturday night, the Enlyten Vision Racing team was certain to find its way back to a solid starting position for with a top ten finish in Mondays race. The Number 17 will start the field in the 14th position and was looking to a strong top five finish. Upon the drop of the green flag Berryhill took his machine to the high side in turns one and two and completed an impressive pass coming out of two passing the 12th and 13th place cars and holding the 12th position. As the field charged down the back straightaway car number 47 cut a right front tire as the number 17 was passing around the high side going into turn three. Number 47 drove straight into the turn four wall collecting Berryhill in the incident destroying the nose of the number 17. The hard working Vision Racing pit crew was able to remove the remaining body and get Berryhill back on the track prior to going green again. The Vision Racing Ford Fusion returned to the race track with no visible body from the windshield forward and restarted the race in the 27th position. Upon a crash filled race Berryhill steadily and cautiously raced his ill, aero, damaged machine through the field and salvaged a 17th finishing position for the hard working team of Vision Racing.

Tuesday, February 10th - Working to build a new front end for the Ford Fusion Enlyten backed Number 17. We will overcome and success will be so much sweeter! updates of tonight's action coming soon.
