MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 17) Being spun out passing for sixth led to Casey and the Blount Motorsports Team heading to the pits and a 20th place finish in the SAS Dirt Slinger Classic at I-75 Speedway on Saturday night.
After a less than stellar qualifying setup Roberts made the feature by winning the B Main and lined up eleventh on the starting field.
“We went with the same setup Kerr won here with and it didn’t work this time around so we didn’t qualify well. The car was a whole lot better in the B Main with Casey running some laps that were faster than what Vic (Hill) had turned to set fast time,” said David.
Casey, who started eleventh was moving up through the field. He was in seventh making the pass for sixth when he was spun out. Roberts drove the car to the pits and called it an afternoon.
“We figured that it was better to park it than end up tearing the car all to pieces and that’s what we did,” concluded David.
BMS will take this coming weekend off and get ready for a triple header on the following weekend. The Friday 9/28 SNBS race at Tri-County Race Track will be followed by Lucas Oil events at Dixie and Rome Speedways.
