Craig Revelle – Finish Line Web Design

Fresh off his feature win at Canandaigua Motorsports Park last weekend, Billy Dunn and his team were looking forward to returning to the track and going for back to back wins. Their second place position in the track point standings after the first month of the season has them feeling confident about their season so far, and hoped to back that up with another solid run.
Due to the handicapping system that most tracks use, Dunn would have to start from near the rear of the field in his qualifying heat race. He was able to battle his way to a fifth place finish in the preliminary qualifying heat race. In the 35 lap main event, Dunn would fire from the 18th starting spot and by lap eight he had worked his way into the top 15 and was inside the top ten just five laps later. Over the final 20 laps, Dunn Moved up two more positions, and ended the night with a solid eighth place result and is now third in track points, just four points back of second place.
“The car was ok, just a little bit off from where we need to be though”, says Dunn. “We will keep working at it, and hopefully we can be a little better next week”.
This coming weekend, Billy will return to the Laurent Ladouceur owned 358 Modified on Friday night set to defend his track championship at Mohawk International Raceway. On Saturday night, he will be back at Canandaigua Motorsports Park looking to return to victory lane. The first Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series event is Wednesday, June 5th at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park.
Billy Dunn would like to thank Number One Speed, FastLube of Watertown, Finger Lakes Auto Machine, Glen A. Gould Estate Construction, Frosty’s Ice Cream, and Bicknell Racing Products for their continued support for the 2013 racing season.
