RECAP 

The day started well for Cub Cadet Mowers with Todd Hazelwood reporting no major issues in first practice and the car well on the pace - comfortably inside the 10.

 

In stepped Jordan Boys for the co-driver’s session and the young gun focused on getting up to speed on the challenging circuit. The final session was all about continuing to hone in on the right setup for qualifying tomorrow and some refueling practice for the big race on Sunday.  The team also competed in the PIRTEK Pit Stop Challenge semi-finals as a reward for a sensational season of pit stops. The team just missed out on a spot in the final after being pipped by the sister R&J Batteries Supercar, which went on to beat DJR Team Penske and take home the $20,000 prize! 

 

THE WORD FROM TODD

“Overall, pretty happy with our first day on track and the car is feeling pretty solid. Happy with how the team is working and Jordan’s pace behind the wheel was pretty solid too. The car is straight which is always a win. We have plenty to work on before tomorrow. I think the result doesn’t resemble the speed that’s behind car 14. We’ll do our homework tonight and get ready to go again tomorrow, stronger.”

 

THE WORD FROM JORDAN

“I felt pretty comfortable in the car but today for me was just about getting as many laps in as possible to build on that confidence. A good start, we’re heading in the right direction so now we just need to keep improving and continue building on the confidence.”
