Winston-Salem, NC. --
The clouds could not hold out forever over Bowman Gray Stadium, but they were but luckily they were able to hold out long enough to get one of the two 20 lap Sportsman races in before the rain came. Scott Hall, driver of the #23 Carolina Wood Floors/WSSU Motorsport Management Chevrolet was able to bring home a 6th place finish.
After several weeks of drawing a back of the field starting position, Hall had a little bit better luck this week drawing 10th. Knowing he had a limited amount of time he worked his way through the field.
“We really wanted to bring home a top ten finish this week,” said Hall. “After being involved in some pretty bad wrecks while starting in the back the last few races we knew we had to keep our heads focused and try to bring it home in one piece.”
The sportsman class only made it two laps into their second race when the skies opened up on the track and the races were ended for the night.
Hall will be racing again next week in the 100 lap main event at Bowman Gray. Unlike the rest of the season this race will consist of double file restarts for all cautions.
“We know we have to play it smart next week,” said team owner Mike Robertson. “This is a long race and there are a lot of potential for accidents with the restart. The key to this race is patience and racing smart.”
Hall’s teammate Ryan Robertson made history on Friday night when he was the first late model to driver at North Wilkesboro Speedway since the early 1990’s.
“The track is in really good condition,” said Robertson. “It is in better shape than other weekly tracks. It would be great if they could get a series started here.”
Robertson is planning on running in the inaugural event on Saturday, May 30. Practice and qualifying will take place on Friday.
Robertson Motorsports is sponsored by Carolina Wood Floors, WSSU Motorsport Management and the WCWG CW20.
