Race Winner: Kyle Bush
Weatherman’s Finish: 37th Curry’s Finish: 40th
The series rolled into Texas Motor Speedway this weekend for NASCAR’s All-Star Weekend! Wolfpack Racing held primary sponsorships for both the #47 Duke & Boone Chevrolet Camaro and the #74 Electric Fence Reel/ Vogeler Manufacturing Chevrolet Camaro. Unfortunately, the #74 car would not make it past the opening parade laps due to an electrical issue, having to be pulled off the track before the green flag waved.
STAGE ONE FINISH: 25TH
Rolling off 29th for the start of the Alsco Uniforms 250, Weatherman had his work cut out for him on a blistering sunny day in Texas. Weatherman took the green flag relaying a great handling race car to his team after a few laps. It showed, as he was able to take the Duke & Boone Chevrolet through the field and into 24th place when the competition caution came out on Lap 21. Weatherman reported again to the crew that the car was good but a little free getting into the corner but had good drive off. Losing spots on the restart, Weatherman was able to finish the remaining caution-free first stage in 25th.
STAGE TWO FINISH:24TH
After the Stage 1 completion, Weatherman brought the Duke & Boone Chevrolet to the service of Crew Chief Teddy Brown and the Mike Harmon Racing pit crew. With a quick stop, Weatherman would be lining up in 26th spot, but due to a tire getting away from the crew, he was assessed a penalty that put him in 39th starting position for the start of Stage 2. After relaying his disappointment to the crew, Weatherman marched his way through the field to 26th position. On lap 61, the #8 car got into the back of the #10 car bringing out the caution. On the restart, Weatherman held his ground and was able to take the Duke & Boone Chevrolet up to 24th at the end of the 2nd stage.
Final Stage Finish: 37th
Bringing the #47 down to the MHR crew, Weatherman came out to restart in 27th position. At the drop of the green flag, Weatherman marched forward getting up to 21st place. On lap 100, coming off turn 2, Weatherman pulled hard left to get out of the racing groove as he lost all power and coasted the #47 Duke & Boone Chevrolet to pit lane and behind the wall. The #47’s day was cut short due to a fuel pump failure. “We had good speed,” said Weatherman, “we just had a part failure. We have been plagued by issues this year and should have had several top 20 finishes and some top 15 we feel. The team is working hard, and we must find some luck. We feel good about going into Nashville and performing there like we did today, minus the mechanical issues.”
