MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 14) Blount Motorsports continues to whittle down the list of drivers they are considering to replace Casey Roberts for the 2019 season.
“We had a short list and now that list is even shorter as we get close to figuring out who will drive the Blount Motorsports/Stowers Cat/ Rocket next year,’ said Larry. “We would like to have it done by the PRI show, but that is not a deadline that we have to meet.”
Although no driver has been chosen to replace Roberts the team continues to work on the cars and are looking at running the Leftover race at 411 on Saturday November 24.
“The season might be over, but you never quit working on the cars. You never quit trying to figure out how to make them better,” said David. ‘With that in mind we need to try out a few of the changes we have made and the Leftover is a good place to do it.
The track is close, we run good there and it will give us an idea if we are going in the right direction. We haven’t figured out who will do the driving at 411 yet, but we know it won’t be me or Larry.”
