MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 2) Donald and the boys, who have been struggling the last month, posted a fourth place finish in the Tarheel 53 at Tri-County Race Track.
Although there was not a lot of passing with the top four finishing almost as they started and McIntosh and BMS being the highest finishing non Longhorn Chassis they know they have a long way to go to get things back.
“Right now with the Rocket Chassis are we a little behind, yes we are, but it is not all on Rocket. It is a combination of things. Rocket has had some good results with a new car they are testing and we have been digging and finding ways that we can get better,” Said David Bryant. “I have never had a job outside of racing and it has always been a battle. A battle to get to that winning place and when it comes you take advantage of it and when it goes you work your butt off trying to get it back. Then you take advantage of it until it goes again.
We are in the trying to get it back mode right now and we all know we will get it back, but ……………”
The team has decided that running no better than they are going to Charlotte for the WoO World Finals would be a waste of time effort and money. All of which would be better spent racing locally and concentrating on getting it back. Next Saturday they will be racing the Winterfest event at Winchester Speedway.
