Plainfield, IN - Eldora Speedway's #LetsRaceTwo weekend was less than favorable to Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner Team. Each night started off with a decent qualifying run timing 6th and 5th quick in ProSource Qualifying. Followed by advancement in heat race competition transferring into the AMain straight from the heats each night. However the tables turned when it came time for the AMain each night Boespflug and Crew Chief Davey Jones struggled to find the right setup and it showed on the racetrack. A 17th and 11th place finish was not what the team wanted to see as they came into the Eldora two day weekend failing to finish outside of the top 4 in USAC National competition. Although falling back in both feature events are not the results Boespflug or the HAR Team planned or hoped for they were still able to leave the weekend 2nd in overall Amsoil USAC National points.
The team will start fresh this weekend as they travel to two new tracks for Boespflug as the series heads just a few hours west for the #RivertownShowdown. The USAC double header will make its first stop just outside of St. Louis at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, IL. The teams will then travel south of St. Louis to I-55 Raceway to try their hand at the 1/3 mile high banked oval.
"We struggled all weekend as the track changed we chased it. Not the results I wanted at a track we had much success at early last season, but that's part of it. We were just off in the features each night and it showed in our results. With this weekend behind us we keep our head up and move forward. I am looking forward to traveling to Illinois and Missouri this weekend to two new tracks for me. I am thankful that the USAC National schedule this season has added more travel dates and new venues. Being able to travel and race in front of new crowds is what our series needs. The addition of PPV this weekend is huge as well as we know not everyone can travel when we leave Indiana so it gives those fans the opportunity to watch live thanks to SpeedShiftTV's partnership with USAC."- Chad Boespflug
