Wolfpack Racing Report – Alsco Uniforms 302 – Saturday September 25th, 2021
Race 27 of 33: Alsco Uniforms 302
Track Specs: Las Vegas Motor Speedway 1.5-mile Paved Tri-oval
Race Winner: Josh Berry
Weatherman’s Finish: 18th
After a disheartening 29th place finish due to a jack malfunction on pit road at Bristol Motor Speedway, the MHR team headed west to Las Vegas to test lady luck once again with PORAC on board. Earlier in the year Weatherman would get down early with not one but two cut tires to put him behind the eight ball at the highspeed 1.5-mile tri-oval. Although they did not have the finish to show it, they found speed throughout the race and were excited to get back.
Stage One Finish: 18th
Weatherman would roll off 26th ready to put what they learned earlier in the year to the test, and at the drop of the green flag, it was evident that they had found speed. Weatherman would pick his way all the way to 13th during the first stage but got shuffled back on the restart. Two laps after the green flag, Weatherman narrowly escaped a 12 car incident that saw several playoff drivers end their day. Weatherman would drive back up to 15th when he reported to Crew Chief Mike Tyska that the car was tightening up on the corner exit. Weatherman would wheel the #47 PORAC Chevrolet to an 18th place Stage One finish.
Stage Two Finish: 17th
After taking the PORAC Chevrolet to the service of the MHR crew, Weatherman would come out and restart 23rd. Weatherman would show great speed the remainder of the stage staying out of trouble and continuing to show the speed they found earlier in the year. Weatherman would again report a tightness off the corner. He would finish Stage Two in 17th position.
Final Stage Finish: 18th
Weatherman would restart 26th for the third and final stage. Weatherman would once again drive up inside the top 20. With a mostly uneventful final stage, Weatherman would bring the PORAC Chevrolet home to an 18th place finish.
“Today felt great,” said Weatherman, “we rolled off with speed and were able to maintain that speed all day. We would get a push coming off the corner that would hurt us on the long runs, but all in all, it was a great day for the PORAC Chevrolet. It was great to have representatives from PORAC there to cheer me on.”
Kyle and the MHR team heads to Talladega Superspeedway for this weekend’s Sparks 300.
