Eric Beers finishes 12th at New Hampshire Speedway in NASCR Modified Tour race.
Northampton, PA. . . . Northampton, PA NASCAR Modified Driver Eric Beers went to New Hampshire Speedway for the first time and accomplished a 12th place finish in the Horwith Racing, Sunoco Race Fuels #36 NASCR Modified. Eric time trialed 11th best on Thursday.
Eric started the race in 12 and was up to 9th when the race was red flagged for rain on Friday. The race was restarted at 8:05 AM Saturday Morning. When the first Yellow flew once action was resumed some of the leaders pitted and Eric did not. He was running as high as 3rd when a car on the inside of him going into three that he was passing come up high and almost put it into the wall. Eric got the car back straight but lost many positions. Eric not experienced with the New Hampshire draft did well to register a 12th place finish and hold onto second place in the NASCAR Modified Rookie Points.
Eric enjoyed his race at New Hampshire, commenting after the race "This is a great facility and a fast place to run. I learned a lot today, such as where I should be more aggressive and use the draft to my advantage. We are already better prepared for the trip back here in September."
The team left New Hampshire and immediately to Mountain Speedway where the winner there again and not surprisingly was the pole sitter and led from green to checker. Eric finished 9th and commented how different the tires are from the Hoosiers he used Saturday morning at NH to the American Racing tires they use at Mountain Speedway.
Eric will travel to Mountain Speedway this Saturday night and then to Riverhead on August 3rd for the NASCAR Tour Show.
