Trey Mitchell Looks to Translate Past Success to the Present

 

Mooresville, NC (March 30, 2010) - Trey Mitchell and his #47 team are looking forward to returning to the track where they saw the bulk of their success during the 2009 season, Hickory Motor Speedway. Mitchell will hope to make a climb up the PASS South points standings. However, with the level of competition expected to be on hand this weekend the twenty year old Texas driver will have his work cut out for him. Forty-five plus cars are expected to attempt to make the twenty-eight car field making this year’s Easter Bunny 150 the best ever.

 

In last year’s version of the race, Mitchell won the last chance qualifying race and went on to finish fourth in the 150 lap feature. Later in the year, Mitchell had his best career finish in the Independence 150 with a second place effort. So far Mitchell’s average finish at the North Carolina track is 9.33 in three career races.

 

This year, Hickory is a welcome sight for Mitchell after a parts failure in the rear end of his car relegated him to a thirteenth place finish at Dillon Motor Speedway in the South Carolina Clash 150 just a few weeks ago in the series season opener.

 

A few pre race preparations like making the switch to a Ford crate motor this weekend to help conserve tire wear on the abrasive 3/8th mile oval along with the ability to share information with Canadian racer Lonnie Sommerville who also utilizes veteran crew chief Gary Crooks should put Mitchell in mix for a good weekend.

 

“Since we’ve raced Hickory in the past we know it’s a place that has an old abrasive surface that really eats tires. Having a crate motor in the car here last year really played to our favor in the final thirty laps. Guys with the bigger motors were slipping and sliding everywhere while I was able to feather the throttle a little bit more than they were throughout the race which is huge when it comes time to go at the end,” stated Mitchell.

 

Mitchell will be looking for a win at one of the most famous short tracks in the country this weekend and with most tracks and touring series being off for Easter it may be an opportunity to prove himself against some of the best in the business including NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers David Ragan, Max Papis, and Chase Elliott, the son of NASCAR legend Bill Elliott.

If Gary is his crew chief than he should fair pretty well. I knew Gary while working in NC. We went to Penske shock school together. Hes one of those crazy-smart guys. Good luck Trey.
