Blackjack scores top 5 filling in for the Hitman!
(2/9/2006 Barberville, FL) When Brian Brown got the call to sub for Hitman Jason Martin in the NOS Energy Drinks/Mafia Motorsports Maxim he was just happy to be back in the seat and hoped for the best. Well hoping for the best and how he performed last night has Blackjack ready for more. Brownie started the night out right on track by setting quick time for over ¾ of the night until being bested by Chad Kemmenah, the time would be 2nd quick. The NOS Energy Drinks/Mafia Motorsports #36 would start 6th in the 2nd heat and would finish 4th putting Brownie on the pole for the 2nd dash. Running a low line in the dash would see Blackjack take home 3rd and start 6th in the "A" Track conditions continued to worsen as the evening went on. At the drop of the green Brown would take over 5th and ride in line on the bottom holding a hard charging Brooke Tatnell at bay for a 5th place finish.
"Fantastic. Thank you Martin Motorsports." Said an overjoyed Blackjack. 'It is great when you get in someone else's car and it just feels right. Jason and his guys gave me the exact set-up we needed on this track tonight. I just wanted to come in here and give these guys some good runs and we are definitely doing that. When you can come in and run with these guys in the first race of the season and take a top 5 that just sets the tone for the season. The NOS Energy guys were in tonight and will be back with hospitality tomorrow and I know they are impressed with this team. I know when Jason gets back in the car he has the team and equipment behind him for strong runs."
"We are really happy with tonight's performance." Said Promotions Director Mike Fine of NOS Energy Drinks. "I hate it for Jason but we see that this team really has strong potential for great things this year. We support Jason and Martin Motorsports and want to thank Brian for giving us such a great performance and being so easy to work with."
Jason and the NOS Energy Drinks/Mafia Motorsports Maxim will be at Wal-Mart in Ormond Beach today from 12-2 if you get the chance stop by for some NOS and an autograph.
