(Sparta, KY – September 21, 2014) After starting 9th in the ZLOOP 150 at Kentucky Speedway, Justin Allison fought hard throughout the 100 laps to capture his 6th top-10 finish of the season in 7th place.
“We were a little aero tight when we were running with traffic, but overall the car felt great,” says Justin Allison. “We lost track position on our pit stop, but we definitely made a ton of gains throughout the race, making our way up to 4th at one point.”
After qualifying for the ZLOOP 150 in the 9th position, Allison maintained his position in the top-10 through the first half of the race. On lap 25, the caution flag flew; giving Team BCR the option to come into pit, but the team chose to stay out. Some of the cars on the lead lap chose to pit, giving Allison the chance to start 5th at the restart. Once the green flag flew again, Allison, in the No. 88 HaVACo Ford Fusion made his way up to 4th during a few laps.
When the second caution flag flew for debris on lap 45, where Allison was 7th at the time, the car was still a little tight. Crew Chief, Teddy Brown and the crew serviced the car for a wedge adjustment, air pressure adjustment, a change of four Hoosier tires and Sunoco Fuel. When the pit crew went to change tires on the left side of the No. 88 HaVACo Ford, they had difficulties getting the car jacked up, which resulted in several lost positions.
Allison would be forced to restart 16th at the green flag on lap 52. During the last half of the race, Allison fought hard to gain back track position, finishing 7th.
“All in all, we were top-10 all day yesterday during practice and qualifying, but during the race I knew we would have easily been top-5,” says Allison. “Howard Bixman and the crew at Team BCR made sure I had one of the best cars out there as always and I can’t thank them for their commitment and hard work this week. I’d also like to thank HaVACo, Rush Racing Products, Casite, Stanley Industries and Tornado Alley Car Wash for their continued support.”
