PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking part in the World of Outlaws west coast swing, Robbie Price was pleased with the speed he made during racing action all week, but was quick to point out how qualifying hampered him and his team.
“I was pleased with the speed we had when we raced, but when you don’t qualify well with the World of Outlaws it makes for a long night, and I just couldn’t figure it out,” Robbie Price said.
Kicking things off over the Labor Day weekend at the Skagit Speedway in Alger, WA, Price would time his Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal/Tiger Towing/Rod End Supply machine in 17th quickest.
Moving from sixth to fifth in his heat race, Price would line up in the 14th spot of the feature event and finish in the 13th spot on a track that was quick due to earlier weather.
The second night at the Skagit Speedway saw Price improve a little during time trials as the 13th fastest lap of the night would put him in the third row of his heat race. Finishing in the seventh position, Price would line up in the 10th row of the feature event before bringing home a 17th place finish.
Following the series to the Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR, Price’s 18th quick effort in time trials would place him the last row of his heat race. Finishing ninth, Price would go on to finish 18th in the feature event.
Heading to the Silver Dollar Speedway for the Gold Cup, Price would time in 20th overall out of 38 cars checked into the pit area, but with split groups in place on this night, the Cobble Hill, BC driver would end up 10th fastest in his group before finishing sixth in his heat race.
Battling with some heavy hitters in the Friday night Last Chance Showdown, Price would fall out of a transfer spot as a fifth place finish would bring his night to an end.
Taking on the World of Outlaws for one final time on Saturday night, Price would overcome a 32nd quick effort in time trials and just narrowly miss out on coming through his heat race to transfer.
Lining up 11th in the LCS, Price would work his way forward but his eighth place finish would not be good enough to get him into the big show.
“Or results don’t show it, but I think we raced really well,” Price said. “I felt like we had speed, and sometimes it is hard to show it from the back. We didn’t race the leaders, but there was a few times I was able to pick up some things from them and we were able to get some good speed out of our car.”
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.
