PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting his feet wet at Silver Dollar Speedway in the two races prior to the 66thAnnual Gold Cup Race of Champions, Ben Worth was happy to put the Tiner Hirst Development entry in the show on Thursday night against a stout field of cars.
“It was a fun week to get up to Gold Cup and be able to race on Wednesday and Thursday night,” Ben Worth said. “I felt really comfortable both nights and it was great to make the show on Thursday.”
Wednesday night, Worth opened his two-night stint up by timing the THE/Larry Davis Farms/GP Development machine in 14thin his qualifying group.
From the fourth row of his heat race, Worth would race to a seventh place finish and find himself in the night’s ‘B’ Main event. Lining up eighth in the ‘B’, issues on the start would see Worth get knocked out of shape and then contact would ensue and it would end his night.
Back in action on Thursday night after the trash was on to get his machine put back together, Worth would time in sixth fastest on the extremely slick Silver Dollar Speedway surface.
Picking up a fifth place finish in his heat race, the Coalinga, CA driver would punch his ticket into the feature event after picking up a win in the semi. Picking up a couple of positions early in the race, contact would get Worth into the wall on the race’s sixth lap and it would bring his night to an early end.
“I have to thank everyone at THE for their continued work on the car, and to help me out as a driver,” Worth said. “Always a lot of fun, and I can’t wait until the next one.”
