PETERSEN MEDIA- Venturing to Cottage Grove Speedway for two events with the Summer Thunder Sprint Series over the weekend, Robbie Price would pick up eighth and 10th place finishes.
“We kind of struggled both nights, but still managed to hang around inside the Top-10,” Robbie Price said. “Friday night we were in a really good spot and couldn’t capitalize and on Saturday night we just couldn’t get going.”
Timing the Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal/Wheeler Paint Works/Rod End Supply third fastest in qualifications on Friday night, the Cobble Hill, BC driver would advance to third in his heat race after lining up in the fourth spot.
Pulling the two in the redraw, Price would line up on the front row of the 30-lap STSS feature event. When the race came to life, Price just seemed to struggle as he lost a few spots early in the race.
Trying to right the ship and move around the ¼ mile bullring, Price would fall back a few more positions as he came home with an eighth place finish.
Hoping for a better night on Saturday, Price would time in ninth fastest in time trials and find himself on the front row of his heat race. Finishing second, Price would move into the feature event where he gridded the field from the ninth starting spot.
Battling inside the Top-10 all race long, Price just couldn’t make a big run like he had hoped to do, and wound up actually losing a position when it was all said and done as he finished 10th.
“You hate to say it was a bad weekend, but it wasn’t what we were hoping for,” Price added. “We will work at it this week, and try again at Skagit on Saturday.”
Price and his team would like to thank Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal, Wheeler Paint Works, Rod End Supply, Wildlight Photography, Tru Square, and Shark Racing Engines for their support during the 2017 season.
