Crashes Hamper Minter at Motorama

BEAUMONT, TX (September 28) -- Having already claimed the 2007 American Sprint Car Series Gulf South Rookie of the Year award, Kathryne Minter is trying to move forward in the overall standings. Crashing in her heat race and in the "B" Feature Friday at Motorama Speedway slowed her progress.

Minter, who ranks ninth in the ASCS Gulf South points race, drove the #13m Concrete Crushing Company J&J into sixth place in the First Heat Race and 12th in the "B" Feature.

"It was just an open-wheel deal in the heat race," Kathryne said. "I ran over somebody's tire and turned over. Tracy Cearley slid up into me in the 'B.' He just drove underneath me and I had nowhere to go. It was either him or the wall. I hit him and cart-wheeled on my side. I'm OK; just a little sore. I would have made the show even though we were having motor problems if I hadn't hit him ... my car was fast. I was in a transfer position when they called for a restart, and I could have easily made the show."

Minter is looking forward to Saturday's ASCS Gulf South event at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown.

"Hopefully, we can go back out and have a good run at Houston," Kathryne said. "We've had some good runs there this year."
