After the first three races of the 2003 USAR Hooters Procup season, Glenn Gault Racing is looking forward to hitting the track for the remaining races. Two late race altercations and a fluke distributor problem have soured what has been a fast race car at each event.
"It is a shame that our finished have not been better, but that is how racing goes. If luck all evens out, we should have some great success later." commented the veteran. "We were in the top 8 in each of the first two races when I was turned around and at Mansfield, we really had a great car. That Hess chassis was doing amazing things during our practice runs. However, qualifying was washed out and then the distributor failed at the start of the race. I would have loved to have been racing, because I am sure we could have been playing in the top five at the end of the race."
The improvements is the result of "starting over," claims car owner Larry Zolata. "The guys took the car down to the bare frame and put it back together, considering every part, every pound and every location. It is now more the way we have always done things. Glenn is more comfortable in the car and it shows."
Furthermore, the team has had better communication with their chassis builder, engine builders and their shock builders. "With the help of Advanced Racing Suspension, we have found some basic shock combinations that really work, allowing us to adjust from there," remarked Glenn.
On paper, the 2003 results haven't seemed great. However, anyone watching the #32 team, knows how competitive they have been and understands why the team looks forward to the rest of the season with great optimism.
