Dailey Motorsports falls short at the Mint 400

Bad luck strikes again at the 2011 SNORE General Tire Mint 400. The crew was excited for the weekend but once again, bad luck and a few random parts failure causes the Camburg/Blanco Basura/Hostyle Racing Trophylite to DNF.

The truck started first off the line and set a good pace. The Dailey Motorsports Trophylite led the first lap and then as the truck started off on it’s 2nd lap, power steering gave out. The Dailey Motorsports crew quickly jumped into action and got the truck running again but after a lengthy repair, the team set off in survival mode and aimed at just finishing this grueling 400 mile race. Unfortunately, this would not be the case. The truck then experienced more issues and after all was said and done, the team was not able to complete it’s final lap in the allotted amount of time.

“We are extremely disappointed.” said team owner Patrick Dailey. “We felt very prepared for this race but unfortunately, we can’t prepare for the unforeseen. The truck worked flawlessly. The tune on the Fox Racing Shox was simply amazing. This is the best the truck has ever worked.” continued Dailey. “ I would like to thank the whole Dailey Motorsports crew and all our supporters. They stayed out there till the very end and we did everything in our power to finish this race for those guys, but unfortunately we fell short.”

Next up for Dailey Motorsports is the SNORE KC HiLites Midnight Special. This race will be held in the Primm, NV area in July. The team will use this break to to do a full ground up prep and make sure the truck is 100% ready to compete for a win at the next race.

Dailey Motorsports would like to thank all of its sponsors and supporters for the 2011 season which include, Camburg, Blanco Basura, Hostyle Racing, KC HiLites, DanZio Performance, Fox Racing Shox, Ringers Gloves, Currie Enterprises, Dailey Engineering, FAST-Aid, Johnny G Motorsports, Scosche, Desert Assassins, and Richer Racing,
