MARYVILLE, Tenn. (June 6) For Casey and the Blount Motorsports Team the WoO Tennessee double header had a rough start at 411 Motor Speedway followed by promising results at Volunteer Speedway.
On Friday night at 411 they were able to get the car better for the feature, but it was too little too late. That combined with a late race wall test, the wall won again, put them watching the end of the race from the pits.
“We weren’t much good to start, so we started way back in the feature. We got the car better in the feature, but weren’t really going anywhere when Casey got into the wall and that was that,” said David.
On Saturday night for round two at Volunteer they made some changes and by the time the feature rolled out they had a car that for the first time suited both Casey and David.
“Car was better to start, but still not where it needed to be in qualifying and the heats. We made some more changes and had a good car in the feature. A car that for the first time that both Casey and I liked. Casey could and did run the car anywhere he wanted on the track,” concluded a smiling David.
“The car in the feature was great. I could drive it anywhere on the track I wanted to and it felt good,” said Casey. “If we would have had a caution or two we might have come away with a better finish, but that didn’t happen. What’s important is David and I were both smiling after the race.”
This weekend Tommy will be running the Iron Man event at I-75 with Casey taking the weekend off.
