Another Strong Showing at Pocono

During the running of the Wies Markets 150 ARCA race at Pocono on August 6, 2011, The LaCross Motorsports team demonstrated why they can call Pocono their “home track”.  

The team struggled in practice to get the car to run as fast as they are used to running, they discovered a burned up left front wheel bearing right after a disappointing time trial of 59.9 seconds (normally in the 57 second range).  With ARCA’s permission to make the fix the problem, the team went to work on replacing the wheel bearing in time for the race on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, they discovered that the bearing had damaged the spindle and they had to replace the entire lf suspension. As the raced the clock to get ready for the starting grid, the weather complicated the process when rain interrupted the Camping World Truck race and postpone the racing action until Sunday morning before the Sprint Cup race. 

On Sunday, the early part of the race was spent battling for position with 3 other cars. Running second in the pack of 4 cars, Brent was able to make attempts to pass the Steve Fox car in an effort to be in position for the luck dog. After several attempts and a couple of cautions, the team was back on the lead lap and ready to secure the long awaited top 20 finish on the lead lap. This would prove the team as having the “home track” advantage. 

Unfortunately, with less than 10 laps to go, Brent brought the car down pit road with a flat left front tire. Although the team did a quick pit stop, the leaders put the number 69 car one lap down for a finish of 21st position. Although the team was disappointed by the late race trouble, they left their “home track” knowing that they had again put on a good showing by running competitively with some of the best teams that both ARCA and NASCAR have to offer.
