LaCross Motorsports Finds Success at Talladega

Brent Cross' Cortland based race team took their ARCA car to the Talladega Superspeedway against some of the best ARCA and NASCAR development drivers and came home with a 24th place finish. The small team of friends and family were very thrill to find that their car was able to run in the draft and stay on the lead lap.

Since the team qualified 33rd, it took awhile for Brent to get through the traffic and ended up loosing the lead draft on the original start. After get the "lucky dog" award on the first caution, he found the car would keep up in the draft on the restart. The team took advantage of a couple of cautions to take on fuel and right side tires, and by lap 50 they were ready to go the distance. At that point they had worked their way up to 15th position. Shortly after a caution for the big wreck, Brent radioed in that he thought there was a right front tire going flat. Forced to pit during a green flag, the team assessed the situation to actually be a siezed left front wheel bearing, ending the team's chance at a top 20 finish in their first restrictor plate race.

Even though the wheel bearing caused a DNF, the team spirits were not dampened because of the realization of countless hours of preparation resulted in a car that was good enough to get compliments from other competitors and ARCA officials. This was a huge accomplishment for the team of upstate NY racers. The crew consists of Chuck Miller, Crew Chief and the over-the-wall team of Aaron Cross, Eric Bomboy, Todd Caufield, John Traphagen, Bob Cincotta, Wade Camenga, and Matt Sheerin. Duane Canfield and Jim Caufield worked from the spotters stands. Team LaCross Motorsports is supported by Bestdeck Composite Decking, Quadraflex Labels, Cummings Auto Machine, D2K Graphics, Hedger Fabrications.

LaCross Motorsports is planning for the next ARCA event at Pocono Speedway on June 6, 2010. Anyone interested in participating, please contact Brent Cross at 607-591-5556.
