PETERSEN MEDIA- Continuing a family tradition of competing at the Trophy Cup, Robbie Price would record a personal best finish during the Thursday night feature event before some issues plagued him on Friday and Saturday night.

“We had a really fast car all weekend long, and I felt pretty good at Tulare,” Robbie Price said. “Unfortunately we lost an engine charging through the B on Friday night, and on Saturday we got upside down on the first lap of the semi.”

The busy weekend got underway on Thursday night when price timed the Millstone Heating and Sheet Meal/Tiger Towing/Rod End Supply backed No. 21p machine in 18th fastest.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Cobble Hill, BC driver would pick up the heat race win, and transfer directly into the opening night feature event.

Gridding the field form the ninth row, Price would have a nice showing on an extremely slick and wide Thunderbowl Raceway. Battling with some drivers with a ton of laps at the

high-banked speedway, Price would pick up a personal best 16th place finish.

Looking to better himself on Friday night, Price would again time in 18th fastest in qualifying time trials. Finishing sixth in his heat race on this night, Price would have to make a stop in the ‘B’ main where he would grid the field from the 15th starting spot.

Needing to finish fourth to lock into the feature event, Price would have his work cut out for him. On another racy Thunderbowl Raceway surface, Price would have his elbows up as he sliced and diced his way through the field. Getting up to the fifth spot by the 15th lap, Price’s engine would let go and his night would come to an end.

With confidence that he had speed at the intimidating track, Price would sit 23rd in points heading into Saturday’s finale. Looking to make some good points in his heat race, Price would get turned on the last lap by a car that lost power and would be relegated to an eighth place finish.

Slipping to 27th in Trophy Cup points, Price would grid the field from the fourth row for the 25-lap B main event. On the opening lap of the semi, Price would bounce through a rut in turns one and two and his machine would get upside down, and his Trophy Cup would come to an end.

“It was definitely a disappointing way to end our Trophy Cup,” Robbie Price said. “It was good to have speed each time we hit the track, but we didn’t have any luck on Friday and Saturday. Thanks to everyone who helped us get our stuff back together and keep us on the track all weekend.”

Price and his team would like to thank Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal, Tiger Towing, Rod End Supply, Wildlight Photography, Shark Racing Engines, and Speedmart for their support during the 2016 season.
