Continuing his assault on the pavement in 2016, Robbie Price picked up a win on Friday night during the opening night of the Daffodil Cup before finishing third in the Saturday night feature event and finishing second in Daffodil Cup Standings.
“It was a good weekend for us, but just a little frustrating to come up short of the Daffodil Cup win,” Robbie Price said.
Kicking the two-day show off on Friday night, Price would time his machine in sixth quickest, which would line him up on the front row of his heat race. From the outside front row starting position, the Cobble Hill, BC driver did what he had to do and picked up the win.
Pulling the eighth pill for the feature event, Price would grid the field form the fourth row for the opening night feature event. Getting a few cars in the early laps of the race, Price would continue to pick up positions as he raced through the Top-Five.
Getting into the second spot late in the race, Price would make his move with seven laps to go as he took over the race lead. Out in front, Price would be unchallenged in the final laps as he picked up the race win, marking his third of the 2016 season.
Returning to action on Saturday night, Price would get off to a quick start as he would time in second fastest and would finish fourth in the Trophy Dash.
Picking up a third place finish in his heat race, Price would pull the five pill in the redraw, which would place him in the third row for the Daffodil Cup finale.
Getting into the fourth spot as the race came to life Price would settle in as passing was at a premium up front. Continuing to run in the fourth spot, Price would close in on the final spot on the podium as the came to a close.
Making a big pass on the race’s final lap, Price would capture the third spot on the line, and make the race for the Daffodil Cup a close one. When points were tallied up, Price would come up just four points short and end up second in overall standings.
“It was disappointing to come up four points short, but that is part of racing,” Price said. “We had a rough patch there for a while so to come home with a win and a third place finish is huge. I want to thank everyone on this team for all of their continued support.”
Price and his team would like to thank Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal, Tiger Towing, Rod End Supply, Wildlight Photography, Shark Racing Engines, and Speedmart for their support during the 2016 season.
