Bob Schacht Motorsports Produces 2 Top-10 Finishes at Rain Shortened New Jersey Road Course

(9/29/08 - Millville, NJ) - The ARCA RE/MAX Series Road Course weekend at NJMP was inundated with sporadic rain showers. The Friday afternoon practice was canceled due to the weather. Sim Factory Pole qualifying took place under mostly sunny skies on Saturday. However, the same weather system carried over to the Loud Energy Drink 150 on Sunday where officials were forced to shorten the race, 19 laps shy of the scheduled 67.

Bob Schacht qualified his own #75 in the 19th starting spot on Saturday and drove his BSM Ford to the 9th place on Sunday, before the rain began to fall on lap 37. The race officials decided to keep the cars on track in an attempt to dry the race surface to no avail. The call was made to display the checkered flag on lap 48 with Schacht finishing in the 9th position.

Reigning series champion, Frank Kimmel drove his Bob Schacht Motorsports prepared Ford to 12th on the starting grid on Saturday and wheeled the Stewart's Root Beer #44 to a 10th place finish on Sunday, giving both Bob Schacht Motorsports prepared cars Top-10 finishes on the road course at NJMP.
