TAZEWELL, Tenn. (March 18) After starting 14th Tommy drove the Blount Motorsports GTO to a ninth place finish in the Advance Thunder Series event at Tazewell Speedway Sunday evening. It was the second Thunder race of the season and the second ninth place finish for the BMS team.

After qualifying the Blount Excavating/Stowers Caterpillar GTO 18th, Tommy won his B-Main, which put him starting 14th on the 24 car grid. Being patient and taking what he could get from a one-groove track he moved up five positions to post a ninth place finish.

“With all the cars so even we need to do a better job with our qualifying,” said Tommy. “We had a good car, but qualifying 18th put us mid-pack on the starting-grid. If the track isn't perfect that makes for a long afternoon.”

Kerr and BMS will be racing the Late Model Special at Volunteer Speedway this Friday night. Check the schedule for all race dates.
