PETERSEN MEDIA- Running the 2016 season in memory of his late Uncle, Shawn Wright got things started on Saturday night with a 9th place finish at the Marsyville Raceway during the Sherm and Loree Toller Memorial.

“I had some rust early in the night and that showed during time trials,” Wright said. “I was able to get comfortable as the night moved on, and was able to avoid the wrecks in the feature and finish with a Top-10.”

With 22 cars in the pit area on Saturday night, Wright timed the Wright Process Systems/A.R.T./Wilwood No. 99 machine in 16th fastest, putting him in the first heat race.

Lining up in the third row, the Tulare, CA driver would make some nice moves has he got into the third spot, where he would finish, putting him in the eighth row for the 25-lap Toller Memorial A-Main event.

Avoiding a couple of early wrecks aboard his Hixco/Wesmar Racing Engines/Super Shox entry, Wright was able to settle into the flow of the race and work is way forward.

On a track that yielded a ton of passing, Wright was able to make some timely moves as he closed his first night of the year out with a ninth place finish.

“I have to thank my family and our sponsors for their continued support,” Wright said. “It felt good to get back in the car, and hopefully we can improve nightly.”
