Sets Fast Time at North Georgia Speedway, but Collected in Feature
(March 7, 2018)
Next up on the racing calendar for the #53 team was a trip to
North Georgia Speedway in Chatsworth, Georgia on Saturday evening,
March 3 for the Ultimate Super Late Model Series lid lifter. A
31 car field assembled at the northern Georgia oval for the $4,000
to win shootout.
Ray Cook knocked down the quickest lap during the qualifying
session to earn Fast Time honors and the pole position for the
40-lap main event. After leading a couple of opening laps and
contending early in the distance, Ray was unfortunately collected
in a wreck with a spinning lapped car and retired from the contest
on lap seventeen. The Brasstown, North Carolina standout settled
for a disappointing twenty-fourth place effort following the incident.

"Just like at Bulls Gap the week prior, we qualified well
at North Georgia and ran up front early in the race," quoted
Cook this week via telephone. "Unfortunately, we just haven't
been able to close the deal and be around at the end of the race
when it pays the money. Our Capital racecar has been very good
and shown some speed, we just need a little luck to go with it."
The Wynn Motorsports team will take the upcoming March 9-10 weekend
off from racing action, but Ray will be busy with a couple of
different promoting duties. The Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown,
North Carolina will hold an open practice session on Friday evening
from 6:00pm-9:30pm to kick off their 2018 campaign. On Saturday
night, the Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Bonus Series will
preside over the $5,053 to win 'Southeastern Classic' at Dixie
Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia. This historical show will be the
first race of the 2018 season for both the track and the tour,
but will also mark the first event with the new "Droop Rule"
that Ray introduced in December of 2017.
