Austin took it and started 14th made it to 7th again no cautions which he needed. Still a solid run. Drove straight to Del Mar afterwards got there 4:30 Saturday morning. Got a few hours sleep, washed car and headed to the track at 1 just for them to cancel. Mother nature won again.

Austin will be racing at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night if it doesn’t rain. However, he won’t be in his car as he’s driving for someone else. It’s not a points race and they wanted to save the motor.

         


 

About Austin:

2018 was Austin’s 2nd year driving in the 305 Sprint division, and he was voted one of five most popular 305 Sprint Cars drivers in Pennsylvania. Austin is stepping up to the 360 Class (700HP!) in 2019.

From Austin: “I have a great team behind me and I think that is the most important part of this sport. I bring a determined attitude, giving it my all every time I hit the race track, learning setup and the track each time. At the age of 20, I strive to learn and put myself into contention to be the best. No matter who for, or what I am driving, I will give them 100% and be as competitive as I possibly can.”

A winning attitude from an up-and-coming driver!
