Harraka Wauters Motorsports Beat the Heat to Take Home 17th …
Paulie Harraka and the No. 5 Wauters Motorsports team post a 17th-place finish at Kentucky Speedway Thursday night in the running of the UNOH 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event.
In over 100 heat, Harraka placed the Ford F150 in the 23rd-place position on the starting grid for the 150 lap race at the 1.5 mile Sparta, Kentucky race track.
The race at Kentucky Speedway was exactly what our race team needed: a solid foundation to build off of, Paulie Harraka said. My Wauters Motorsports guys worked their tails off in the 100 plus heat to give me a solid race truck, and we re bringing it home in the top-20 and without a scratch. Ted Musgrave came on board with us this week to work with me, and he has been a huge help. I m confident that with the addition of Ted to an already dedicated, hardworking race team, we ll continue to improve, step by step, and will run up front before long.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads next to Iowa Speedway for the running of the American Ethanol 200, July 14, 2012.
