Justin Whittall and the Atlantic Utility Trailers, Pioneer Auto Body, World Wide Bearings, 67w team made the 6-hour tow north to the Outlaw Speedway located in Dundee, NY to compete in the 2nd Annual Fall Nationals. The Annual Fall Nationals is a combined event bringing all three 360 sanctions bodies for one race. The United Racing Club, Empire Super Sprints, and Patriot Sprints Series brought a combined 38 cars into the pit area for Friday night’s action.

Whittall started in the 6th position in heat race 3 and brought home a 4th place finish advancing into the feature event and avoiding one of the two B-Mains.

By virtue of his 4th place finish, Whittall started in the 16th position for the 30 lap feature event. The team set up the car for the bottom at the drop of the green, Whittall was at a disadvantage as all the front runners went to the top side of the racetrack. By lap 10, Whittall had slipped to 20th and by lap 19, Whittall was into the 19th running position. Whittall then brought out a lap 23 caution as the left rear tire was flat on the 67w machine. Whittall was able to make changes, and restart in the 20th position with 6 laps remaining. Whittall was able to pick off multiple cars bringing home a 16th place finish.

Whittall will now have some time off from the United Racing Club, as the Club will return to action on Saturday October 21st at the Port Royal Speedway.
