As this edition of the Report was going to press, the BeasleyAllen.com race car had just finished in a strong third-place position at the Texas Motor Speedway, with driver Grant Enfinger and crew making tracks for Talladega. Grant ran the BeasleyAllen.com car in the top ten all night at the 150-mile ARCA race in Texas on April 16th, before being edged out by Steve Arpin, who took the win. Craig Goess snagged the runner-up position. Grant was a strong third.
Third place in this crowd is nothing to sneeze at, but Grant was left wishing he’d placed even higher. He led 20 laps toward the end of the race, but said in the end it came down to tires. “Our restarts killed us,” he said. “The race car was nearly perfect all night, except that I spun the tires on restarts, even when I started in second gear.”
However, despite his disappointment at missing out on the checkered flag, Grant was upbeat and said overall it was a positive experience. “The entire race weekend was fun,” he said. “Crew chief Howard Bixman, spotter Jeremy Lundy and the entire crew performed perfectly. They and Beasley Allen deserved the win, and we are determined to give it our best shot next week in Talladega.”
Fans had a few opportunities to see Grant, the crew and the car between races, as the team traveled to Houma, La., the Sunday after the Texas race for a public appearance. This was followed by a stop-over in Fairhope, Ala., where they worked on the set-up for the Talladega car to make it ready for tech and practice later in the week. Then the car made a pit-stop in Montgomery on April 21st for what is becoming a popular annual appearance at the Farmer’s Market Café during lunch hour, before making the short drive to Talladega SuperSpeedway.
Both the Texas race and the Talladega event were broadcast live on Speed TV, which last season learned that ARCA races – especially those involving Grant Enfinger and the BeasleyAllen.com car – make for exciting viewing. BeasleyAllen.com Racing promotes the Beasley Allen law firm to race fans throughout the southeastern United States, while also working to bring attention to the battle against Cystic Fibrosis.
