“It was a long hard year, but you can’t focus on that,” said Hahn when asked about his rookie season. “You just need to keep your head up and focus on what’s ahead because really, it’ll all work out in the end. We had some great finishes and learned a lot so there were more positives than anything last year.”
Finishing tenth in tour standings, the 2014 Brodix Rookie of the Year rolled out 10 top-ten finishes as well as four top-fives in 32 feature starts.
Reassessing his program during the off-season, one aspect that will not change is personnel as father, Tom Hahn, and crew member, Dalton Seigler, will again accompany Blake on the road this season. Equipment on the other hand will see several changes.
“We had been running an ’06 Big Max, and it’s a great car, but we made the decision to switch to JR1 Chassis this season. Jerry [Russell] came to us with an offer that we really couldn’t pass up and with the way his cars have performed, I feel good about the change.”
Moving to Penske shocks on the Speedway Vending / CSR Garage No. 52 as well, Hahn is looking at the big picture and putting together a full season, keeping the idea of consistency at the forefront of his team, “We’re just looking to make good laps every time we hit the track and above all, have fun. A top-five in points would be nice, but we are focused on putting an entire season together.”
Keeping with Wesmar power for the 2015 season, Hahn will take in as many races as the team can handle with a schedule of nearly 65 dates between ASCS National and Regional competition.
Overall, Blake Hahn has competed in 47 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature events with six top-fives’ and 16 top-tens’ to his credit. Starting in ASCS regional competition in 2012, Hahn has earned four regional victories.
