Prelude to the 50th Annual Governor's Cup Pro Late Model

Stokes was back on asphalt with the Rocking Team of Racecar Solutions!

Carter had practice Friday night  and was top of the leader board. Everytime the American Auto Chevy hit the track he got faster and faster; by the 3rd round the crew was all smiles.

The Race Day started even better. Stokes and his crew improved their time and was P1 in final practice. Confidence is a necessity in this industry and the entire team was ready to prove it. With a technicality prior to qualifying Stokes had one lap to make it stick. Two laps would have helped but one lap put Stokes starting 13th for the100 lap Pro Late Model race.

Starting mid back was a game of keeping it clean and being 100% focused. Stokes clearly had a rocket ship but had to be patient as he worked his way through the field. Restarts are key and after several close calls resulting in cautions by others; Stokes manage to improve his positions throughout the first 75 laps. Once he got down to a 25 lap race he caught the P1 and P2 guys and hammered as much as time would allow. Starting 13 and getting to P3 was a pure dose of determination. Top 3 is great and even better than that; not a scratch!! Celebration for a smart wheelman!

Thanks to Altantis Contractors, American Auto Tire & Services, Mediamix365, and Richard Childress Racing. Racecar Solutions are awesome to work with! Thanks for the awesome car!
