MARYVILLE, Tenn. (July 23) Casey finished fourth at Rome Speedway rebounding after finishing 12th the night before in the second of two Southern National races at Swainsboro Raceway.
At Rome Casey started eighth and finished fourth.
“Moving up from eighth to finish fourth doesn’t sound like much, but when you have a really good field of cars it’s more than you think,” said David. Casey had a good qualifying run and ran a good race. It was our fifth top five in the first six Southern Nationals races and that speaks well for Casey and the BMS team.”
On Saturday night at Swainsboro things did not go as well with Roberts starting 18th and finishing 12th in the feature. With three laps to go Roberts was running in front of the leaders, the last car on the lead lap, when the right rear went flat.
“Casey drew a bad number. We were the first car out and you wanted to go out late like Overton,” said David. “Can’t put it all on Casey’s draw though as we just were not much good and that flat with three to go was a fitting end to a forgettable night.”
There are four races left in this years 10 race Southern Nationals Series and coming out of Rome Casey and the BMS team has the series point lead. Tuesday night Boyd’s Speedway will host race seven, eight is at Crossville, nine at Smoky Mountain and the finale is at Tazewell on Saturday night.
“We have definitely made some strides and things are starting to fall into place. All we need to do is keep everything in perspective and keep on digging,” concluded David.
