Race 8 of the Bojangles Summer Shootout: Great Racing By Blake Despite Engine Failure

Blake went into Race Eight of the summer shootout very confident after clocking some great lap times during Monday night’s practice session. Blake has now got his lap time into the 17.6’s. On Tuesday’s race he took the checkered flag in P1 for his Heat Race. That gave Blake a starting position of P14 in the 20-plus driver Feature race. Blake made steady progress through the feature race passing car after car until he reached the P7 position with only 7 laps to go in the race. That’s when his engine blew a rod and he lost total power in his car. But that’s all part of racing!!!! Blake was disappointed because it was clear he was well on his way to hitting his top five goal on this night. But he’s taking it all in stride and remains focused on that goal for next week.
