CMR Racing comes home 7th at Circus City Speedway!

For Immediate Release
Upland, IN

CMR Racing returned to Peru, Indiana this past Saturday the 13th. The team was hoping to build off the success they had the weekend before. The track ended up with 2 grooves in the feature event. However, Chad was not able to take advantage of it like he had hoped.

"We had a decent heat race to start off the night. The track started to slick off and I did not adjust enough for it. We moved up one spot after starting 6th and finished 5th. I just could not get back into the throttle coming off the corners like the others in front of me. The more I tried the more I fell back and just spun the tires out from under the rear of the car." stated Chad Orr after Saturday night's heat race.

"The feature event we were trying to decide on which way to setup the car. They reworked the track but I was not sure if it would hold the moisture all the way or if it would slick up. I decided to go for the bottom on setup. I started down there and then I saw some other drivers going to the top. I tried to go up there and get something going and just went backwards. I finally got my brain back in my helmet and went back down to the bottom. We were able to get a few cars but I could have done a lot more if I would have done what the car wanted. I chalk this result up to driver error !" Chad Orr laughed as he spoke after the nights race.

Racing starts at 8 pm this Saturday at Circus City Speedway as the track has pushed start times back one hour due to the extreme heat. Gates now open at 5 pm with racing to start at 8 pm. Admission is only $10 for adults and children 12 years or younger get in free. Pit passes are $25.00 for adults and $10.00 for minors 6-12 (non-drivers).
