LEE, N.H. & SCARBOROUGH, Maine -- The entire Bobby Webber Racing team knew that three races in two days was going to be a difficult task, but the team completed a solid weekend with one victory, and a top-five finish.
Bryan Kruzcek wheeled the No. 19 Hawthorne Automotive, Vynorius Companies, Hedges Excavating Late Model Sportsman to a third victory in four starts on Friday night at Lee USA Speedway in the second of double feature races. During the first race, a crash sidelined Kruczek before the finish -- but in the second race -- he charged to the front and drove away with the victory behind the wheel. It was the third win in four starts over the last two weeks in Lee's Rodfather Late Model Sportsman class.
Kruczek also wheel the No. 19 Vynorius Super Late Model to a fifth-place effort with the Granite State Pro Stock Series at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Maine on Saturday, June 12. He qualified sixth in time trials, finished third in his heat race, and ran around the top five the entire race en route to a solid finish.
"One word sums up this weekend of racing for us and that is 'team'"," Kruczek said of Lee's Friday night event. "We hoped for another sweep at Lee, but the first incident out of our control put us in the pits. My crew got right to work and thrashed to rebuild the front of the body and repair the radiator and as always gave me a fast car to drive threw the field and take down win number three."
"Heading to Beech Ridge, being the place I got my first touring series win, I felt fairly optimistic about having a good run at Beech Ridge just knowing how the track can change over the day," he said of Beech Ridge's fifth-place finish. "We made minimal adjustments all day and just unloaded a comfortable car to drive and I was able to hang around the front all race and bring home a solid top-five for BWR to wrap our weekend."
The team will take a week off from the Granite State Pro Stock Series and focus on the next round of Rodfather Late Model Sportsman racing on Friday, June 18, back at Lee USA Speedway.
