The WP Truck series visited Kentucky Motor Speedway on Monday night. This mile and half tri oval proved to be very slick and tough during the green flag runs. Many of the drivers discovered that when the truck spun the race was over. At that point the handling just went away. Kyle Pilman and Steve Grooms had the handle on this track. Steve Grooms was quoted in the post race interview saying, “you had to drive with and egg under the gas pedal” . Kyle Pilman must have had two eggs because he drove away with the checkers for first. Steve Grooms came in second followed by Max Racing, Snook, and SRZ JB. Good racing fellows and looking forward to next week at Iowa for the Corn Huskers 200.
Due to technical difficulties with Memphis the truck series had to move its event to the Richmond Raceway. This was an exciting race due to having 5 to 6 drivers fighting for the lead at all times. This track was extremely hard on the the rear tires and about 20 laps into the run the grip got very slick and causing alot of self spins. Kriptnite managed to come back with an exciting finish over Parrot to take the victory. Parrot got second, Brian Kenney third, D-Viney in fourth and Mike Roland in fifth. While all this was happening Mr. Kyle Pilman cruised within the top 10 to bring home the championship for season 39. Max Racing finished a close 2nd but no trophy this season. Great Job Kyle Pilman on your Championship for Season 39.
Season 40 will start next Monday at Texas Motor Speedway.
