PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting off to a less than desirable start at the 2nd Annual Winter Heat Showdown, Robbie Price on focused on making consistent laps, and getting his confidence back up with two races still to go.
“The first three races have really been a learning curve,” Price said. “We struggled the first night, and then I feel like we got better Saturday and Wednesday and that is helping me build some confidence up.”
Though he has struggled to make a feature in the first three events Price and company have seemingly got their new car better each night.
Finishing seventh in both of his Friday night heat races, Price would pick up a 10th place finish in the second of two B Main events.
Saturday night would see the Cobble Hill, BC driver line up in the second row of his heat race and race his way to a third place finish, earning valuable points for the qualifier.
Lining up fourth in the qualifier, Price would get into some trouble that forced him to pull off the racing surface and head back to the pit areas and he would be scored in the eighth spot.
Finding himself in the fourth row of the B, Price would take his lumps as he would close his night out with an 11th place finish.
Regrouping, and returning to action on Wednesday night for the third night of racing, Price would find himself in the third row of his heat race. With the track narrow from weather in the heat, Price would hang on a finish where he started.
After some track work prior to the qualifiers, Price would run in the second spot, but it would not be good enough to get him into the A, as he found himself in the third row of one of the twin B-Mains.
Battling with drivers like Brian Brown, Danny Lasoski, and Danny Wood, Price would battle for a transfer spot early in the race, but we end up finishing in the eighth spot.
“We are definitely getting better, and I think if I can continue to make good laps we can get into the show this weekend,” Price added. “I have to thank everyone who has helped us, and who has kept me up when I want to get down.”
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 2016 season.
