MCNALLY OVERCOMES SET-BACK TO SCORE SOLID POINTS IN TASSIE

Glenn McNally battled a race 2 puncture at Tasmania's Symmons Plains Raceway to fight his way back to 11th place in race 3 of the V8 Utes today.

After qualifying 10th and finishing 9th in race 1 Glen was looking good for the weekend.

Unfortunately it all turned sour while in 7th position in race two after a clash late in the race that punctured a tyre and forced him to limp to the finish in 24th place.

"I got hit up the back early in the race at the hairpin," Glenn said.

"That caused a slow run up the back straight and I lost a few places there."

Glenn fought his way back to seventh place before a clash of wheels tore a chunk from a front tyre two laps from the end.

"I knew that I had to finish the race so it was just a matter of keeping it on the track and out of everyone's way so that I could pick up valuable points."

The final race gave Glenn a chance to make up for lost points in race 2, and a solid drive saw him finish 11th in the race and gave him 11th for the round.

"Considering it was my first run at Symmons Plains and we had the problem in race 2 it was really a case of getting out of jail this weekend to finish 11th overall."

Glenn was the third Holden hole over the weekend and remains well inside the top ten of the Series.

Glenn's next round is at Darwin where he performed well last year and really made his mark on the V8 Utes Series.

"Darwin was a happy hunting ground for me last year and hopefully we can have a repeat of that this time around."
