MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Apr. 2) The Spring Nationals doubleheader at Senoia Raceway over the Easter weekend proved to be another long one as Blount Motorsports and driver Casey Roberts continue to search for the winning combination.
In the Friday night opener Roberts finished third in the second heat, started 15th and finished ninth. On Saturday night they had to take a provisional. Started 22nd and had passed their way to 11th just past the halfway point of the race. Running 11th he was caught up in a wreck, knocked the nose off the car and did other body damage. He was scored 20th in the final rundown.
“We were never really good anytime during the weekend,” said David Bryant. “We have been trying to find a good balance for the car and driver. So far we haven’t been successful in being able to find it.”
“The BMS team is a successful team and I have been a successful driver with my own team and we are both used to winning. It is not a question of if we are going to be successful, but when we will be successful,” said Roberts. “Meanwhile we are doing everything we can to figure it out.”
Another Spring Nationals doubleheader is coming up this weekend. On Friday night the action will be at Crossville Speedway and Saturday night at Tazewell Speedway.
