Driver & Team Press Releases News
John Bolen Ready for ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour Doubleheader
Mar 23, 2009 - updated Mar 23rd, 2009 7:14pm
Web posted by

Jasper, AL. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 23, 2009

Jasper, Alabama, Driver Gears Up for 200 Laps of Late Model Action

Saying that John Bolen is a little anxious to run his first ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour event of the season would definitely be an understatement. With the amount of experience he has at Five Flags Speedway (FL) and Mobile Int’l Speedway (AL), he will definitely be a top contender for the weekend’s doubleheader on Friday, March 27th, and Saturday, March 28th.

Five Flags Speedway will be the backdrop on the opening night of racing, as the buzz around the Southeast is about the recent track grinding surface project that was done in order to minimize tire wear.

“We actually plan on going down there and running what we have before,” said Bolen. “The few people I’ve talked to say they haven’t done too much to the track, and it still knocks these tires up pretty bad. Augie (Grill) and the people that do all of my cars said that everyone who has tested down there hasn’t really changed their setups much. We have enough laps down there, so we will be in the ballpark from the get-go.”

Bolen is more motivated than normal this year going into Pensacola. After missing the prestigious Pro Late Model Snowflake 100 last year at the same track, he will be out to set the record straight in Pensacola.

“Last year we didn’t really give the two-barrel car a lot of attention,” explained Bolen. “We really focused on the Snowball car down there and it kind of bit us. We know next time what to do and what not to do. I think going in this weekend we should be a real contender for the win.”

In the past, Bolen has run great at the half-mile track in Mobile. He had his best career ASA SAT finish, a third-place run, back in 2008. With past success, Bolen is anxious to get back behind the wheel.

“I am leaps and bounds better this year,” Bolen said. “This time last year we were still trying to figure out where we ranked and what we had. We were coming off two years of not racing. We raced all season last year and learned a lot. Altogether we are a much better team going into Pensacola and Mobile.”

Bolen is also excited to get behind the wheel in good health. He was suffering from a brutal sinus infection and dehydration during the Rattler 250 in early March. He was also still a little tender from a past toothache.

“The week before (the Rattler) I had a sinus infection and I got a shot and some antibiotics,” said Bolen. “The weekend before that I had a toothache, so I was being medicated for two different things. I felt fine during practice, but once we started the race I could feel it. Heat usually doesn’t bother me, but it did at the Rattler. I never really lost control or anything. I just had a real bad headache.”

Bolen will be back at 100 percent, as his team is preparing for the grueling two nights of racing. For more information on John Bolen, please contact Elgin Traylor at (704) 788-2134 x4, or visit his website at johnbolen.net.
