The G2Racing team has been extremely busy lately as they complete the build and setup of their 2014 Ford Fusion K&N East entry for the VISIT HAMPTON 175 on the 20th of June.
The team is making final preparations to the car and is eager to get to their first test scheduled for this Thursday the 11th of June.
“Competing at this level is new for all of us.” ~ Paul Green “There’s no doubt that Tyler will adapt to this car, he’s proven he can move between classes before and be successful. The pressure is really on the team to ensure the car is as competitive when it unloads on the 20th. The challenge is the car is narrower, heavier, longer, taller and more powerful than the late model which means we’re starting over with the setup.”
As the team nears the mid-point of the Langley racing season, they find themselves six points out of third place. So far the season can best be described as a battle between a determined driver and crew and a heap of misfortune.
“We are fortunate to be doing as well as we are given we have had three DNFs due to a wreck and equipment failures, “ ~ Paul Green. “We are still in a learning phase as a team and each week we have been able to dial the car in more to Tyler’s liking, we’re getting really close to where we need to be.”
“The car was excellent in the second half of the first race, but took several laps before it would come in in the second race.” ~ Tyler Hughes.
“It’s possible some of what was plaguing us recently was a failing idler arm, which finally gave up in that second race and sent us into the 67 car. “ ~ Paul Green.
This weekend, the team will return to Langley Speedway to complete in the NAPA Auto Parts Night Twin 65s with their eyes set on gaining the spots needed to close in on the top three in points.
