The start of the 2009 season for DHR (Dwight Huffman Racing) was on Saturday, March 21 at the famed Hickory Motor Speedway. The team started out with a fast race car on Friday for practice and made some small adjustments. We ran fast lap times throughout the day in practice on Saturday and made some changes for qualifying. Ashley went on to the track and, unlike the day, as the evening wore on it became very cold. So as we all know, new tires and a cold race track do not make for a good combination, so he was able to qualify seventh in the tight field of competition.
As the race began, Ashley very quickly advanced to fifth place. While he was battling for fourth, the car behind made contact with Ashley while entering turn one. Therefore, he spun out and another car collected into him coming off the backstretch. So Ashley finished 14th for the night. Even though the weekend was tough, the team learned many things that can help them in the future. The car had mainly body damage and the DHR race team has spent all week preparing the car and getting it fixed back for the next week.
We would like to thank our sponsors who make it possible to race each and every weekend: Smokies Inc, Pepsi Cola of Hickory, Battery King of Hickory, and Accent Signs of Hildebran. We would also like to thank our fans for their support and hope to see you all at the track in the near future.
