Inside Line Promotions – CLIO, Mich. (Aug. 8, 2018) – Mandy Chick faced tough luck last weekend as an early race incident took her out of contention during a JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour event at Auto City Speedway.
“We were able to go back to Auto City and pick up the line pretty quickly in practice thanks to my notes from last year,” she said. “We picked up four tenths (of a second) from last year and ran our fastest laps there.”
Chick laid down a qualifying lap that timed in 17th quickest. However, the team opted to pull out of the qualifying line to make some adjustments to the car and therefore start at the tail of the field.
“We struggled in qualifying a good bit,” she said. “I was off and the car was off. We definitely didn’t qualify where we wanted to be so we made some adjustments for the race and had a long way to the front.”
Chick missed an on-track incident by a split second decision early in the race. Unfortunately, a few laps later she was caught up in an incident that ultimately took her out of contention for the remainder of the night. She was credited with a 17th-place finish.
“It was a rough weekend with qualifying and how the race went,” she said. “But we had fun because it was hard racing. Although we didn’t finish the race, I still was able to learn from watching how other drivers drove their lines so not all was lost.”
Chick’s next race will be this Saturday at Berlin Raceway in Berlin, Mich., with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour.
