MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Mar. 26) When you are struggling everything seems to go wrong that can go wrong and that’s what happened during Friday night’s Lucas Oil Shamrock at Boyd’s Speedway when the Blount Motorsports Team didn’t make the show.
“We weren’t great, but we weren’t as bad as we looked either,” said David Bryant. “I made bad decisions all night long and Casey (Roberts) and the team paid the price.”
After starting seventh and finishing sixth in the first heat they lined up third in the B-Main.
“Casey got crossed up and the right side of the car got tore up when the two ahead of him in the B-Main wrecked and he was collected,” continued Bryant. “We knew we didn’t have a chance to win it, but we should have made the race. Somebody said if racing was easy everyone would be doing it. When you get in one of these rough patches I guarantee you it ain’t easy.”
The Team, hoping to turn things around, will head to Senoia Speedway for a Thursday night practice before the weekend’s two races that will kick off this years Spring Nationals.
