Car Problems Cannot Stop Robertson Motorsports

Winston-Salem, NC. --

Robertson Motorsports was out in full force at Caraway Speedway on Saturday night. Ryan Robertson, driver of the #31 Carolina Wood Floors Chevrolet qualified 9th for the nights 200 lap race while teammate Justin Hoyle driving the #29 Carolina Wood Floors/WSSU Motorsport Management Chevrolet qualified 21st in the 24 car field.

Robertson was hoping to bring home another top ten finish on Saturday and looked poised to do so during the beginning of the race. Robertson fought hard against several cars for the first 50 laps taking as much as he was giving away.

On lap 61 a lapped car cut down into Robertson sending him into the wall breaking the front suspension.

“With the race being 200 laps we knew we had some time to get the car back running again,” said team owner Mike Robertson. “The crew worked extremely hard and extremely quick to get the car back out on the track.”

Robertson made it back out on lap 137, missing a hood and the front left fender. Unfortunately his bad luck was not over yet. On lap 159 a tire went flat forcing him to make a green flag pit stop to replace it. Eight laps later Robertson ventured back onto the track. Due to the teams perseverance Robertson was able to bring home a 17th place finish and is currently 12th in points.

Robertson Motorsports is testing the #29 Chevrolet trying to get it up to speed with their other late model cars and giving Hoyle valuable seat time. He ran a limited number of laps before bringing the car in before it sustained any damage.

“Justin is giving us valuable feedback on how the car is running,” said Mike. “This is also giving him some seat time to help him get used to driving in these bigger races.”

Robertson Motorsports other teammate Scott Hall tested on Thursday night at Bowman Gray Stadium in the #23 Carolina Wood Floors/WSSU Motorsport Management Chevrolet. Just a couple laps into practice the throttle stuck in the car sending Hall into two walls on the quarter mile track. The car sustained substantial damage but luckily Hall was able to walk away without any major problems.

Hall plans to run at Bowman Gray this weekend in the season opener. Robertson and Hoyle will be heading back out to Caraway Speedway the following weekend.

Robertson Motorsports is currently sponsored by Carolina Wood Floors, WSSU Motorsport Management and WCWG CW20.
