Hot Day Of Racing In CharlotteWith the big NASCAR show in Charlotte, Rick Ware Racing and the #41 Poynt team looked to continue their run towards weekly top 15 finishes and ultimately, the first win of the season. With Charlotte as a home town track for RWR and a personal favorite of Timmy Hill, the timing couldn’t have been better.
Crew Chief George Church
During the two practice sessions the team focused on race runs with old tires, with a goal to have the car as fast as possible late in a run. “This race typically has a long green flag feel. You will get some cautions through the race but normally you have to be strong on the long run and make tires last until you stop for fuel”, stated crew chief George Church.
This approach proved to be the right one as the team qualified a respectable 24th but immediately ran into the top 20 and stayed there all race long. While others struggled with old tires and extremely hot track conditions, the #41 Poynt.com car rose through the field, running as high as 10th through the race. With late race pit stops and a run to the checkered flag, the RWR team finished 19th on the lead lap and continued their run of solid lead lap finishes.
“Our #41 Poynt.com car was really fun to drive today. George gave me a really stable car that was flat out awesome on old tires. We had great strategy all day long and finished out a solid day. I think we could have been top 15 easily but at the end of the race, 19th on the lead lap with zero damage is just fine.”, stated Timmy Hill.
