Johnny Sauter and the Hot Honeys/Curb Records Toyota Tundra battled slick track conditions for the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway Thursday night. Sauter qualified in 6th position earlier in the day and fought a very loose truck until the end of the 150-lap race. Several adjustments were made to the Toyota Tundra during yellow flag pit stops, but the track surface was not cooperating and made it tough for Sauter to get back up to the front. Sauter maintained his truck in the top-ten for the majority of the race until a missed lug nut forced him to return to pit road. He was able to race the truck back up to 6th place for the conclusion of the 225-mile race.
“It wasn’t exactly the finish we wanted, especially after our win in Texas”, said Sauter. “The track conditions were not what we wanted, the heat of the day really caused it to be slick out there. The guys worked really hard to make adjustments to the Toyota Tundra, but we weren’t able to get where we wanted to be in the end. I am looking forward to going to Iowa next week.” The NCWTS and ThorSport Racing head to Iowa Speedway on Saturday, July 14th for the American Ethanol 200 airing on SPEED at 8:00PM EST.
