Updates will be posted throughout the weekend.
Thursday - promoter test day
Friday - two official practice sessions and qualifying - Qualified P5, will start on the inside of row 3. Hoping the weather holds.
Saturday - 40-lap race (101.6 miles) at 11:30 a.m. The rain held off and the morning fog lifted for the TA2 field. Came home with a P3 finished in a race that had two full course cautions.
Dillon Machavern, in the No. 24 Heritage Motorsports Ford Mustang also out of the Mike Cope tent, would complete the TA2 podium—also his third podium of the year, and fifth consecutive dating into 2016. The finishing position sees Machavern retain his lead atop the points standings.
