(Joliet, IL – July 21, 2014) In his Chicagoland Speedway ARCA Racing Series debut, Justin Allison earns his fourth consecutive top-10 finish in last weekend’s race.
“We struggled a bit during the weekend but we definitely bounced back and made the changes we needed to finish strong,” says 21-year-old Allison.
Justin Allison started the race from the 8th position and was running in 7th when the car was just too loose to handle for the rookie driver. Allison spun on the backstretch, causing the first caution of the race. No contact was made and the No. 88 HaVACo Ford Fusion would come in for a change of four Hoosier tires, Sunoco fuel and track bar adjustments.
Allison restarted 18th at the green flag, making up two spots in three laps. As the next caution came out on lap 21, Allison mentioned the car was still too loose to handle so Team BCR brought the No. 88 HaVACo Ford Fusion in for a track bar adjustment and fuel, sending Allison back out to 19th for the restart.
The changes to the Ford seemed to help, since Allison made up nine spots by lap 48, taking away the 10th position. A caution mid-way through the race gave the team another opportunity to pit considering the car was still too loose for Allison to finish strong. The team made a wedge and track bar adjustment, changed all four Hoosier tires and capped the No. 88 off with Sunoco fuel, sending him back out to 10th.
After making his way into the top-5 in the remainder of the race, Allison slipped back in the closing laps to hold on to the 8th position and earn another top-10 finish in his Chicagoland Speedway debut.
“We were loose all weekend, but we finally got the car right where we needed it during that last caution,” says Allison. “During the last few laps of the race, though, the car started to get really tight. The weekend could have gone better, but overall we did well and learned a lot this weekend. I have to thank HaVACo, Rush Racing Products and everyone at Team BCR for their commitment this weekend.”
