Kennington to miss New Hampshire

Nationwide Series and Canadian Tire Series driver DJ Kennington's dream of double duty will regretfully not happen this weekend. "It's tough! We had everything in place but a phone call last night changed a flight by 40 minutes to have this thing shattered", stated Kennington.

Kennington who completed a International Double at Kentucky and Mosport two weekends ago was prepped and ready to race at New Hampshire and Barrie Speedway in the same evening. "We just dont have the money for private planes and helicopters and if there is just one glitch in commercial, it effects us alot. Never thought that 40 minutes of my life was so valuable."

Kennington will compete at Barrie Speedway at 8:00pm where he won both races last season in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. "It will be double duty next week for sure. Daytona is on the Friday and St Eustche' is on Saturday. There will be plenty of commercial flights from Florida to get me there."

Car owner and former NASCAR Cup, Nationwide, and Craftsman Truck Series driver, Randy MacDonald will be behind the wheel of the Mahindra Tractors 81 Dodge at New Hamphire. "This is not what we expected, but things happen for a reason. I have had success at NHIS before and look forward to stepping on the gas one more time for our team", stated MacDonald.
