Dotter scores top-20 at NHIS
Loudon, NH Bobby Dotter scored another top-20 finish for the People Against Drugs/Puma Tools Chevrolet in the New England 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at the New Hampshire International Speedway. Dotter, who has two top-5 finishes at NHIS in the NASCAR Busch Series, steadily fought from his 26th starting position to take the checkered in 19th position.
"This is the truck we had an accident with in practice at Kansas a couple of weeks ago, and right up until the checkered flag fell we have been working on making it driveable," Dotter said. "We are really happy to get out of here with a top-20 finish and have this thing loaded on the trailer in one piece."
With his 19th place finish, Dotter gained one position in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point standings. He is now 14th, 85 points out of the 13th position.
"We are really happy to gain another spot in points. Once you start getting to this point, every position is harder and harder to get. Hopefully we can pick off another spot here and there as the season goes."
Dotter is looking forward to going to Michigan International Speedway for next Saturday's Michigan 200.
"We have a great truck to take up to Michigan. It's the truck we raced at Texas and Kansas, and we were really good at both tracks. This is one we have looked forward to for a while. I have had some good runs in the Busch Series up there, so we look forward to a good run up there with the truck too."
The Michigan 200 is scheduled to get the green at 1 pm ET on July 27, and can be seen live on ESPN. The race can be heard live on XM Satellite Radio and MRN Radio affiliates nationwide.
