PETERSEN MEDIA: Making the business decision to not compete on Friday night at US-36 Raceway due to track conditions, Austin O’Neal and the Austin O’Neal Racing team are poised for tomorrow night’s Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway after picking up fourth place finishes at the track during their last two visits.
“We are all excited to get back to I-80 Speedway on Wednesday night,” Austin O’Neal said. “We have been pretty good there the last two times, and with us essentially sitting out last Friday’s event, we are eager to get back racing.”
With extremely rough and tumble track conditions, O’Neal made the decision to park his Marmon/Keystone/Weld Racing/River Valley Ag No. 11 entry on Friday night after timing in second fastest in his qualifying group.
As the night continued on, and several cars got upside down with the tricky conditions, O’Neal felt better about his decision, but it has left him chomping at the bit to get back in the seat.
On the schedule this week for O’Neal is a return trip to I-80 Speedway on Wednesday night for the Silver Dollar Nationals, and after his last two visits to the track O’Neal is eager to see how he and his team can stack up.
Finishing fourth back on June 3rd, O’Neal’s most recent visit on July 8th was his most impressive run of the season as he charged from 14th to finish fourth.
Having a pair of Top-5’s to his credit, O’Neal has some confidence heading into Wednesday’s event.
“I was happy with the speed we had on Friday night when we were competing, and to mix that with the success we have had at I-80 the last two times we have ran there has me excited to get back in the seat on Wednesday and see if we can contend for a win.”
