Bloomington, Indiana (04/09/12) – Kent Robinson took his #7r JB’s Salvage/Mastersbilt/Jay Dickens Racing Super Late Model into a pair of events over the course of last weekend and came away with two, top five finishes to show for his efforts.
Kent entered a Weekly Racing Series Event at Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Illinois) on Friday night as a strong field of twenty, UMP Super Late Models registered for action. In qualifications, Kent recorded the third fastest time, which locked him into the dash. A fifth place finish in the dash earned him the fifth starting spot for the feature. He would battle in the top five during the duration of the feature before crossing the finish line in the fourth position behind race winner, Jason Feger, Ryan Unzicker, and Bobby Pierce Jr.
Saturday night found the team at Brownstown Speedway for a Weekly Racing Series Event as a solid field of 27 cars registered for battle. Heat race action saw Robinson storming from the eighth starting position to a second place finish to lock into the sixth starting spot for the feature event. In the main event he would mount another great charge through the pack as he staged a late race shootout with Chad Stapleton for the lead. Unfortunately lap cars would not work in Kent’s favor as he had to settle for a second place finish behind race winner, Stapleton. Full results are available at www.BrownstownSpeedway.com.
“We would’ve loved to get a feature win this weekend, but as much bad luck and struggles that we’ve had to start the year, a pair of top five finishes feel real good right now. Hopefully we can take this momentum into Eldora this Saturday and pick up the first win of the year,” commented Robinson.
Next on the docket for Kent is a $2,000-to-win, Sunoco American Late Model Series (ALMS) event at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) this Saturday. The event opens the 59th season of racing at the famed, 1/2 mile oval. For more information on the event, please visit www.EldoraSpeedway.com .
