Cory Roper – No. 04 Preferred Industrial Contractors, Inc./Carquest Ford F-150 Review

Toyota Care 250 at Richmond Raceway

No. 04 Preferred Industrial Contractors, Inc./Carquest News and Notes

·       Tough Break in Richmond: Cory Roper crossed the finish line with a 31st place finish in his Preferred Industrial Contractors, Inc./Carquest Ford F-150 for Roper Racing in the Toyota Care 250 at Richmond Raceway.

·       Throttle Problems: Roper started 21st but battled issues with his throttle early in the race which forced him to pit early to fix the problem and lost a lot of laps in the process.

·       Picking Up Spots: Despite the issues, Roper was able to pick up a few more spots with other drivers having issues during the race, which helped the team gain a few more points.

From the Driver’s Seat:

Cory Roper: “It was a frustrating day not being able to compete with a great truck.  Not happy with the finish but excited about the way the truck handled and the speed we had.  Shane, Chris and all the guys are building fast trucks and we will keep pushing.”

From the Pit Box:

Shane Whitbeck: “We had some issues right at the start of the race and it was just hard to overcome that. Cory did a good job and stayed with it all day. We learn a lot about the truck and what he needs on the short tracks. I feel good about going to more of them and I can’t wait to get to Kansas.”
