Texas Nationwide Post Race Recap
After a well needed rest and 2 weeks off, the Rick Ware Racing Team headed to Texas Motor Speedway with 2 well prepared cars and a eye on the ultimate prize. Unfortunately luck would not be on their side this go around. Early on their team was tested with a broken shock and cut tire in the first practice for the #15 Poynt.com car driven by Timmy Hill. “Timmy did an amazing job keeping the car out of the wall and minimizing the damage. These cars are close to 170 mph in the middle of the corner where the failure occurred so I honestly don't know how he didn't wreck. We are very fortunate to have Timmy behind the wheel and keeping the 15 out of trouble.”, stated Rick Ware.
The remainder of practice would be uneventful along with qualifying but there would be no rest for this team during the main event at Texas Motor Speedway. Early in the race Timmy ran over debris in the racetrack and cut another tire, forcing the team to make repairs under green and causing the Poynt.com car to go multiple laps down. The #41 car driven by Blake Koch stayed out of trouble and ran super competitive times while working his way into the top 15. However, during a restart, Cup Champion Kurt Busch hit Blake Koch in the left rear sending his car into the inside fence and ending his night.
The team will focus on fixing damage from Texas and preparing for next race on the schedule, the tricky .75 mile Richmond International Raceway race. Stay tuned for more action and behind the scenes action!
