PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking in another night of action aboard the 3G Racing machine, Shane Stewart held on to a third place finish, after a dirt clod blew through the hood and his dash, making it tough to see the last few laps.
Starting seventh in his heat race, the Bixby, OK driver was his elbows up, as he raced his way up to a second place finish, putting him in the feature event, in the third row.
Starting in the fifth spot, Stewart flew around the speedway, as he marched is way up to the second spot on lap 10.
In the second spot, bad luck came at Stewart by way of a dirt clod. Busting through the dash, and breaking the hood, Stewart’s vision became impaired, as he also dealt with a throttle issue, due to the busted body panels.
Slipping back to the fourth spot, when his incident happened, Stewart was able to claw his way back forward, and scored a third place finish.
“It didn’t pay to be short on Friday,” Stewart said. “We had a great racecar, but kind of a freak deal with the hood and dash getting busted up. I have to thank Joe and the boys for all of their hard work.”
Though he wasn’t out west this weekend, Stewart had Peter Murphy on his mind, after learning of the injuries sustained to the driver competing with the King of the West Series.
“I just want to send my thoughts and prayers out to the Murphy family, and especially Peter,” Stewart said. “I have competed with him a bunch during my time out west, and he truly is a great guy. I hope he can recover to 100%.”
