From Peterson Media
A bad weather system, and a wet track were not a winning combination over the weekend, as Tony Bruce, Jr scored a 13th place finish on Friday night, before Saturday’s event was rained out.
“It was a terrible night of racing,” Bruce said. “With the weather, the track was greasy the first few laps during every race, and just made it difficult, and frustrating.”
Starting 7th in his heat, TBJ was able to work his Hinchman Indy/Eagle Motorsports/Oil Medics entry up to a fifth place finish, however, it was not enough to put him in the feature.
Starting third in the B, TBJ was able to work his SWE/Maxwell/FK Rod Ends machine up to a second place finish, where he would transfer to the feature event, but would be marred at the back of the pack.
Tightening his car up for the track, Bruce’s car was simply too tight, for the A, and he held on as he slid around the track, and pushed up through the grease.
Though he was able to stay wreck free, TBJ ended his night with a 13th place finish.
“I think I had 45 tear-offs on before the feature, and there’s not many left,” he said. “We were too tight in the feature, I think we over compensated for the track.”
Bruce would like to thank Hinchman Racewear, Eagle Motorsports, The Oil Medics, Smileys, SWE, Maxwell Industries, FK Rod Ends, Butlerbuilt, Factory Kahne Shocks, DriversWebsites.com, Racinboys.com, Wilwood, Schoenfield Headers, Hoosier Tires, HRP, Kaeding Performance, Schaefer Oil, Fuel Safe, Bell helmets, Four Seasons Radiator, Southern Trailer Works, KSE, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Weld Wheels, and ISC Racer’s Tape for their support.
