ARTS at THR results and recap, 7/3/04

Recommended Posts



After some mechanical problems in qualifying, Bryan Meredith rebounded to finish the night off with a victory in the AllStar Race Trucks - Lone Star Region feature at Thunder Hill Racway in Kyle on July 3rd. The #30 Austin Machine Shop, AMSOil Chevy started the feature in 8th position, after having rearend problems in qualifying.


Around the half way mark of the race, Bryan followed the #29 of Larry Latham to pass the ill-handling #99 of Jon Garrett. Jon, the 2002 ARTS-LS champion, was in a borrowed truck for the evening due to expiring an engine in practice. After a lap or two behind Latham, Bryan managed to stick his nose under the 29 coming out of turn 4, and hung on to the lead for the remainder of the feature. This was Bryan's 5th win of the season. His engine was sealed on June 19th in Houston, after his 4th win of the year, and then taken, inspected, and cleared after this win in Austin (Kyle).


The next stop for the Lone Star region is the 1/2 mile high banked track of San Antonio Speedway on August 14.
