Reidy Struggles during WSS Weekend at PCR

From Redline Media

A bad time trial earlier in the two night show has resulted in Danny Reidy struggling throughout last weekend’s 11th round of the World Series Sprintcar (WSS) Championship at Parramatta City Raceway (Sydney, NSW).

Qualifying 23rd in time trials on the Friday night, Reidy had mid pack starts in all of his heat races that night and finished fourth and fifth respectively and this wasn’t enough to earn him a start in the preliminary feature race field.

The following night Reidy started from position four in his third and final heat race and due to mud getting jammed in the right rear tyre of his NT # 5 Desert Palms Resort supported J&J it caused a massive vibration. As a result Reidy fell back down the field and finished in a disappointing 11th place.

Due to the dramas during his final heat, Reidy missed out on a mid pack start in the B-main and started in the C-main. Reidy came out of position three in the C-main and was unable to advance any higher than that. Reidy finished third and consequently missed out on a transfer into the B-main by a single spot.

“We were chasing our tails after we time trialled poorly and our weekend ended in the C-main, which is a perfect example of why time trials and moving forward in each of your heat races is important,” remarked Reidy, who at the previous PCR WSS round back in December finished the feature race in second place behind American Jason Johnson.

Reidy currently sits 12th in the overall WSS point standings with three rounds remaining.

Reidy will miss this Wednesday night’s Presidents Cup at Avalon Raceway (Geelong, VIC) and focus his attention on Friday night’s Kings Challenge at Borderline Speedway (Mt. Gambier, SA) and then Saturday and Sunday night’s Grand Annual Classic at Premier Speedway (Warrnambool, VIC).
