Late Race Struggles for Dakota Hendrickson


PETERSEN MEDIA: Hoping to ride a wave of momentum into the Park Jefferson International Speedway with the NSL on Friday night, Dakota Hendrickson would struggle towards the end of the feature event as he fell to a 16th place finish.

“We were pretty good the first half of the race, but I fell off towards the end,” Dakota Hendrickson said. “We found a hole in the right-rear, so that might of hurt us a little too.”

Timing the Van Dyke Motorsports/Lucas Oil/K&N Products No. 5h machine in eighth fastest on this night, Hendrickson would then finish fifth during heat race action.

Moving into the night’s 25-lap A Main event, Hendrickson would line the JRI Shocks/NAAKE Suspension/FSR Radiators entry up in the fifth row of the feature event. A racy Park Jefferson International Speedway saw Hendrickson hang inside the Top-10 during much of the race as he battled with some of the best drivers in the business.

As the laps clicked on, Hendrickson looked to be on his way to a Top-10 with the NSL as he continued to hit his marks. With the race coming to a close, Hendrickson’s promising night would go south a bit as he began losing positions. Unable to stay in the Top-10, Hendrickson would drift back to finish in the 16th spot.

‘The car went away over the last 11 laps or so, and it really became tough to hit my marks,” he added. “Carson McCarl and Harley Van Dyke continue to work hard and give me a strong car, and I was really hoping for another Top-10.”

The Van Dyke Motorsports team would like to thank Lucas Oil,  K&N Products, JRI Shocks, NAAKE Suspension, FSR Radiators, for their support during the year.

2015 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 30, Wins-0, Top-5’s-1, Top-10’s-4
