PETERSEN MEDIA- Looking for a nice weekend at the ultra tough Trophy Cup to close out his season over the weekend, Kyler Shaw ran into some bad luck on Thursday night, before a parts failure during time trials on Friday night brought his weekend to an early close.
“Overall it was a pretty good season for us, I feel,” Shaw said. “The end of the year was a little rough with some big crashes, but for the most part I feel like I got better as a driver, and we got pretty consistent at Placerville.”
Finding himself in the C Main on Thursday night, Shaw was looking to work his way through the field for a shot at the B Main, but on the sixth lap, cars started crashing in front of him in turns three and four, and with nowhere to go, Shaw’s Shaw Structures Unlimited/PM$ Investments/Stan Yockey Motorsports No. 92 machine made contact and ultiamately got upside down, bringing the 17-year-old driver’s night to an early end.
Looking to put a bad Thursday night behind him, Shaw was back in action on Friday night, as he looked to put up a good points night and head into Saturday night in a good position.
On his first lap of time trials, Shaw went into turn one, and a steering arm broke, and Shaw was unable to turn as he made contact with the wall, before riding the catch fence, causing his machine to tip over. His night was done before it ever really got stated.
“Man, Fall Nationals and Trophy Cup were really rough on us,” he said. “I have to thank my parents and all of our supporters for sticking behind me. It is tough to end the year like that but we had some positives. It is crazy the season is over, but I am already looking forward to 2015.”
Kyler would like to thank Shaw Structures Unlimited, PM$ Investments, Stan Yockey Motorsports, Pro Signs, 4FourGraphics, F4st Four Media, Borrelo Racing Engines, Uncle Dave’s Ranch, and Sid’s Smokehouse for their support.
