PETERSEN MEDIA-Robbie Price resumed his 2015 season on Friday night at the Marysville Raceway in Marysville, CA on Friday night as he took on the Civil War Sprint Car Series. Fighting some fuel issues most of the night, Price would ultimately cross the stripe with a 12th place finish.
“It was not the finish we were looking for, but for our first visit to the Marysville Raceway, and having some bugs hinder us, it is something to definitely build off of,” Robbie Price said.
Timing his Raylle Auto Sales/Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal/Tiger Towing No. 21 machine in 16th fastest out of the 27 cars checked into the pit area, Price would work his way forward to finish third in his heat race.
Transferring directly into the 30-lap feature event, the Cobble Hill, British Columbia driver would line up in the sixth row. As the race got underway, an immediate caution flag brought on the race’s first double-file restart of the race, before the race’s final caution flew on the eighth circuit.
Restarting in the 14th position, Price hand his hands full as he continued to acclimate to a new track, and also continued to fight with gremlins that plagued his machine during the night.
Focusing on making clean laps during the race’s final 22-lap green flag run, Price was able to work his way forward and finish in the 12th spot, and continue to get more laps in his machine as he continues to transition to the 360ci car in 2015.
“The theme of the early part of the year is to continue to get laps and get comfortable, and we are doing that,” Price said. “I have to thank everyone that continues to help us get this car dialed in, and I am looking forward to the weekend ahead.”
Price and his team would like to thank Raylle Auto Sales, Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal, Tiger Towing, Rod End Supply, Northwest School of Martial Arts, Shark Racing Engines, and Speedmart for their support during the 2015 season.
