PETERSEN MEDIA: Hoping to leave his 2016 luck behind in Placerville, CA, Andy Gregg and his GUTS Racing team made the trip to the Silver Dollar Speedway on Wednesday night to open up the Gold Cup Race of Champions where he would just narrowly miss out on racing his way into the feature event.
“It was just a tough night overall,” Gregg said. “We didn’t time in well, we got caught up in an incident in our heat race, and then we missed transferring into the feature by one spot after starting last in the semi.”
Timing his GUTS/Mike’s Hard Lemonade/Angius and Terry LLP backed No. 16 in 16th fastest in his qualifying flight, Gregg would have no place to go as a car spun across the track in heat race action and be forced into one of the twin ‘C’ Main events.
Getting through the ‘C’, Gregg would start shotgun on the field in a wild 12-lap B Main. Able to work his way forward and avoid some of in the incidents, Gregg gunned for the seventh spot as an additional position was open with a feature event car scratching from the show.
Taking over the eighth spot Gregg would make a bid for the seventh spot, but would be unable to complete his pass coming to the line and his night would come to a close.
“I have to thank my guys for their continued support, and all of their help on Wednesday night,” Gregg said. “It has really been a tough season on everyone, but we are still working hard to end this thing on a high note.”
Andy would like to thank GUTS, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Angius and Terry LLP, ARP Enterprises, Capitol Ace Hardware, New Gen Landscape, Broadband Agreements, K&N, FK Rod Ends, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, FK Shocks, Wilwood, Arnold’s For Awards, CTL Forest Management, Empire Works, Ice House Resort, Ervin Sales, EMI, Watson Cattle, Wally’s Pizza Bar, Myers and Sons Dry Wall, K&T Custom Fab, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, and Nail It Roofing for their support in 2016.
