Double Header at Lucas Oil Speedway Up Next
MULINO, Ore. (07/09/20) – Justin Duty bounced back from bad luck at the start of the weekend to stand on the podium at The Bullring at Rock Island County Fairground in East Moline, Ill.
Duty drove his Don Frank Floors No. 15 Rocket Chassis/ Pro Power Racing Engines Super Late Model to a second place finish in Sunday’s Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA), Bullring Bullseye 40.
“I was super happy with our run on Sunday,” Justin commented. “We had a really rough start to our weekend with some bad luck, so it was good to turn things around and end on a positive note. I feel like we have a really balanced race car right now, which makes me excited for the upcoming races on our schedule!”
Friday night saw Justin Duty in action at 34 Raceway (West Burlington, Iowa) for the 12th annual Slocum 50. With 35 MLRA entries on hand, Duty followed up a seventh-place finish in his heat with a seventh-place finish in his B-Main. Relying on a provisional to start the $10,555-to-win A-Main, Justin retired from the 50-lapper on lap 22.
The following night at 300 Raceway (Farley, Iowa) for the Independence Day Shootout, Justin ran into battery issues in time trials that prevented him for making it out for his B-Main. Starting on the tail of the feature, Duty suffered radiator issues that forced him to retire early. He was credited with a 12th place outing.
On Sunday afternoon at The Bullring at RICo Fairgrounds, Duty timed in seventh fastest overall before coming in sixth in his heat. With $6,000 on the line in the feature, Justin charged all the way from 16th on the grid to register a runner-up finish behind Payton Looney. Jeremiah Hurst, Tony Toste, and Garrett Alberson rounded out the Top-5.
