Tough Trip To Placerville For Andy Gregg


PETERSEN MEDIA: Just when it looked like Andy Gregg had shaken off the worst of his luck and he would start stringing together some nice finishes, Gregg’s luck returned on Saturday night as he would get upside down during the feature event.

“I don’t know that I have ever quite had a season like this,” Gregg said. “My crew has been working very hard, but if it wasn’t for bad luck we wouldn’t have any luck right now”

Getting his night off to a quick start at the Placerville Speedway, Gregg would time the Mike’s Hard Lemonade/GUTS/Angius and Terry LLP backed No. 16 machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials.

Finishing in the third spot of his heat race, Gregg would find himself in the redraw where the eight pill would place the ARP Enterprises/Ace Hardware/New Gen Landscape entry in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event.

In the early stages of the feature, Gregg would have his elbows up on the racy quarter mile as he quickly worked his way into the Top-Five. Taking over the fourth spot as another competitor had issues, Gregg would race his way into the third spot within the first eight laps of the feature event.

On lap nine, Gregg’s night would come to an end as his machine would get upside down. Gregg would thankfully walk away from the wreckage uninjured.

“We had a really fast car on Saturday night, and I had fun working my way forward in the first few laps,” Gregg said. “We will keep plugging away and hopefully good things start to happen for us.”

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.
