JIMMY BLEWETT RETAINS POINT LEAD
WITH GUTSY PERFORMANCE AT STAFFORD
The T.S. Haulers / United Crane Rentals racing team
had a tough night at Stafford Motor Speedway Friday night. Jimmy Blewett
struggled with an ill handling car early and fought his way from a lap
in arrears to finish thirteenth. Blewett remains at the top of the
NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour point standings.
“We did the best with what we had,” said Jimmy, “the car was so loose in
the beginning that I had to short-pit. If the changes we made on that
pit stop had worked, we’d probably be talking in victory lane.” Blewett
inherited the lead on the track when the balance of the leaders stopped
for tires and fuel. “We were still too loose when we got the lead. We
were going to try to hold on for a top-ten finish until we got taken
out.” Jimmy had avoided an incident and was hit by another competitor
under caution. Blewett battled back from one lap down to finish on the
“We have to thank our sponsors for making this possible. We
have United Crane Rentals and Archer Steel from New Jersey they help us
out a lot. And of course Eddie Partridge with T.S. Haulers from out on
Long Island, he puts this all together.”
“I’d also like to personally thank the Arutes for their
support of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour here at Stafford Motor
Speedway. They host us for four events here each year. We hope we can
find victory lane here in one of the two remaining races here this
year.” Jimmy’s next Whelen Modified Tour race will be at the Thompson
International Speedway, in Thompson, Connecticut on June 21st.
