Weller Battles to a 9th Place Finish

Josh Weller and the Schearers VW & Audi Specialists 63 team headed to the Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night to compete with the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club. 

With 42 cars signed into the pit area and 5 heat races to determine the feature line up, Weller started in the 5th position in heat race 2.  With only 4 cars advancing, Weller was looking to advance into a qualified position and possibly into the redraw.  Unfortunately, as Weller was running in the position 4, Weller made contact causing damage to the 63, sending the team scrambling to get the car back together for the B-Main.

Starting 5th in the B-Main 2, Weller advanced up to the 4th position but was unable to advance to the feature event.  Weller used a URC provisional and started shotgun on the field in the 26th position. 

After starting last on the field, Weller was on the move from the drop of the green flag.  The 63 car was shown in the top 20 by the end of lap 1.  Weller continued to advance and was up to 17th by lap 3 and cracked into the top 10 by lap 4.  Weller continued his march and was up to 9th by lap 6 and into the 8th position by lap 8.  Weller continued to ride in the 8th position and was pressuring 7th at times looking to continue his march towards the front.  Weller finally fell to the 9th position on lap 24 as Curt Michael took the spot coming out of turn 4.
