Trey Mitchell Has an Up and Down Day at Orange County

 

Mooresville, North Carolina (4/27/2010) - The last week for the Trey Mitchell Racing team hasn’t been the best. With race three of the 2010 PASS South schedule taking place this weekend at the Orange County Speedway, the team was hoping for a good run to replace the negativity that has seemed to hit the team over the recent weeks. Once again the promise of a good car in practice didn’t quite translate to a good finish at the end of the 125 laps.

 

“We had another good car this week at Orange County; we just didn’t leave with a good finish to prove that at the end of the night. I think we practiced within the top five or ten most every practice which had me pretty excited on what kind of car we had. When it came to qualifying, we stayed about the same as we mocked up during practice and everyone else seemed to pick up a tenth or so. That tells you right there on how tight these PASS South races are getting with the quality of racecars that are showing up,” said Mitchell.

 

The Texas driver qualified twenty-first, missing the top twenty and being locked into the feature by .003 seconds forcing him to race his way in through the last chance race. Mitchell started on the poll of the twenty lap last chance race and finished one spot back, easily finishing within the top six transfer spots securing the twenty-second starting position in the thirty-one car field.

 

By the two thirds point of the race Mitchell had battled his way up to the twelfth position. While Orange County has a multiple of grooves through the turns that allows drivers to fan out from top to bottom it is also a tough place to pass because of the same reason. It was this exact reason that made a chance at a good run go bad for the Mitchell camp when contact with the always aggressive Alex Fleming sent Mitchell wheel hopping over Fleming’s #08 machine resulting in a bent lower a-frame.

 

Over the closing laps, Trey did all he could to pick up several positions crossing the finish line in the fourteenth finishing position. While the exact race results weren’t ideal, the finish did help his climb up the PASS South championship points standings which is a major goal of the team as the top fifteen in PASS South standings will be locked into a guaranteed starting position in the $100,000 to win North Wilkesboro race in 2011.
