DFR made the switch to Genral Tires just before the MINT 400. The Imperial 250 solidified the teams choice with zero flats after 250 miles. Coupled with the Method wheels we have a winning package.
Early in the race we suffered a set back after the jack popped out of the mount a punched a hole in the radiator. The 1025 pulled into pit 1 at RM20 and the team dove in to try and stop the leak. After pinching off the damaged water channels and refiling the car with a mix ice chest water and oatmeal we were back on the track. The crew at pit 1 really proved that the “Never Give Up Motto” pays off. Thanks to the crew at pit 1 without them our race would have been over.
We battled back the next 4 laps and crossed the finish line in 3rd place unofficially.
