By Craig Revelle - Finish Line Web Design - After starting the 2012 racing season at Selinsgrove Speedway late last month with a 7th place finish, Kevin Ward Jr. was looking forward to getting back on track and racing closer to home this past weekend as the Patriot Sprint Tour opened their 2012 racing season at Fulton Speedway on Saturday afternoon.
A strong field of 41 Sprint Cars filled the pit area at Fulton Speedway for the opening night events labeled Methanol Meltdown. After just missing out on a transfer spot in his qualifying heat, Ward Jr. was relegated to the B-Main. He started on the front row, and won, giving him the 22nd starting spot in the feature event.
At the drop of the green flag, Kevin charged forward, battling the early season track conditions at the fast, high-banked oval. At the checkered flag, he crossed the finish line with a solid 9th place finish.
Next up for Kevin Ward Jr. will be another stop with the Patriot Sprints at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park on Friday, April 27th. The following night will be the Empire Super Sprints 2012 season opener at Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park on Saturday, April 28th.
The team is also excited to launch the brand new website from Finish Line Web Design. The website will be updated regularly throughout the season, with photos, schedule, results and information about Kevin Ward Jr. and the rest of the team.
Kevin Ward Jr. would like to thank their sponsors for their support during the 2012 racing season. They include Westward Painting, Tioga Construction, Sherwin Williams, Lyons Falls Tire Inc., Young’s Auto Parts/Carquest, Cash for Cans, and Finish Line Web Design.
