Winter Heat Round 5 – Jan. 12, 2013

The 5th round of the Winter Heat Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway was held Saturday, 1/12 on the Road Course. There was supposed to be a full day of practice on Friday; however, rain and fog kept the cars off the track. With limited practice, Justin was able to make some good runs through the course on Saturday, but couldn’t find the speed necessary to run in the top 5 in the Pro class. For the start of the feature, Justin lined up in the 12th position out of 13 Pro drivers. By the halfway point, Justin was running ninth. During the second half of the race, Justin had to hold off the #54 of Gregory Lang for the 8th spot. Even though it wasn’t for the lead, both drivers did a great job racing each other clean and hard for several laps. Altogether a respectable run for the #99 in his second race in the Pro Division. Starting out the 2013 season, Justin is running with the best to be the best. We will be traveling down next weekend for practice on Friday, 1/18, and Round 6 of the Winter Heat Series on Saturday, 1/19.
