PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting the 2021 season kicked off on Saturday night in Hanford, CA, Blake Carrick would overcome a slow start in the feature event to record an eighth-place finish.
“We had a lot of speed on Saturday night, we just ran into a little bad luck in the Dash and got off to a slow start in the ‘A’,” Blake Carrick said. “It was great to get back racing, and I am looking forward to Marysville this weekend.”
Carrick’s night got off to a quick start on Saturday night as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B entry fastest in his qualifying group with a total of 41 cars checked in for action.
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Carrick would simply need to finish inside the Top-5 to net a spot in the Dash and he would do just that as he finished in the third position.
A little contact during the Dash, would relegate Carrick to an eighth-place finish which would then line him up in the eighth position on the starting grid for the 30-lap feature event.
On a very fast Keller Auto Speedway racing surface, Carrick would shuffle back as far as 12th in the early stanzas of the race. Numerous cautions in the early goings would prevent the Lincoln, CA driver from settling into a rhythm, but once the race got into a green flag run he would slowly begin to work his way forward.
Looking to make up the lost ground from the start of the race, Carrick would find himself back in the Top-10 by lap the sixth lap. Working into the ninth spot just before the race’s halfway point, Carrick would take the eighth spot, where he would finish, with just a couple of laps left the race.
“Thanks to all of the guys on our team for their hard work and helping get a really good car get put together,” Carrick said. “Really excited for the season ahead.”
Blake Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support
