PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing back aboard his Wright Process Systems/A.R.T./Wilwood backed No. 99 machine for the first time since the Gold Cup Race of Champions, Shawn Wright had a Trophy Cup he would like to forget as he brought his 2015 season to a close.
“It was a tough Friday for us, so we called it a weekend after the double header, and that brings our season to a close.”
Having issues in hot laps for the Thursday program, Wright and company would thrash for time trials, but would not get a time in and be forced to start in the back of his heat race.
Able to work his way forward a few positions, the Lodi, CA native turned Tulare, CA resident would finish fifth in his heat race and be bound for the Thursday ‘C’ Main event.
Lining up dead last in the C Main due to no qualifying, Wright would have his work cut out for him from the 20th starting position. With the track racy, Wright had his elbows up as he slowly worked his way forward around the slick Thunderbowl Raceway.
In the 12-lap race, Wright would do all he could as he worked his way up to finish in the 11th spot.
With the Friday program being ran immediately following the conclusion of the Thursday feature event, Wright would time in 26th fastest and finish fifth in his heat race.
Lining up 14th in the Friday C, Wright would again move forward as he did in the Thursday C Main, but his 10th place finish would not move him into the ‘B’ Main.
When the Friday night program came to a close, Wright and his team made the decision to not return to action on Saturday night.
“The weekend got off to a bad start, and it did not get any better,” Wright said. “It was a tough year, but I want to thank everyone who supported us all year long.”
Wright Motorsports would like to thank Wright Process Systems, A.R.T., Wilwood, Hixco, Wesmar Racing Engines, Super Shox, Larry Davis Farms, Kevin Sharrah Designs, DMI, HRP Racing Products, Viking Engineering, and Dan Olson Race Products for their support in 2015.
