NIXA, Mo. (May 11, 2017) – A big weekend of racing action is on
tap for Kyle Bellm and the Resource Asset Management Solutions
(RAMS) No. 14k Sprint Car team with three nights of competition
beginning on Thursday night.
It gets under way
with Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action at Kansas City’s
Lakeside Speedway before two nights of ASCS Regional competition
on Friday and Saturday at Humboldt (KS) Speedway and Springfield
“We have had
decent success at all three of these tracks, so we’re looking
for some good runs this weekend,” Bellm said of the PPG
Automotive Finishes/Colorvision team. “I’m
super confident in what we have going on right now.”
Bellm and the VP
Racing Fuels/Schure Built Suspensions team gained confidence in
Saturday’s outing at Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway
despite ending the night on the hook.
“We were crazy
fast all night, we were a top-three car at worst,” Bellm says of
the Christian County Collision Repair/Bybee Lawn Care machine.
It started early
with Bellm rallying from the sixth starting position to win his
Bellm redrew the
eight to start outside the fourth row of the main event.
With the likes of Jonathan Cornell and Brad Loyet in the
front pair of rows, the impetus was to be on the move.
“I was trying to
get up front as quickly as possible,” Bellm relates.
He was doing
exactly that, making a move for fourth in the early going aboard
the Schaeffer Oil/Prater Designs/The Engine Heater entry.
“I was passing for
fourth, I got pinched into the tire going into three, clipped
the infield tire and flipped it,” Bellm recalls.
“My main mistake was that I tried to avoid the other car
and caught the tire instead.”
It cut short a
night that found the No. 14k fast each time out.
“We were a
top-three car for sure,” Bellm says. “We had
a car fast enough to race with (Jonathan) Cornell and (Brad)
final outcome that shows a 19th-place
finish, Bellm and crew gained confidence that will take them
into this weekend’s trio of events.
Quick Stats: 7 races, 2 top-fives, 2
Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Thursday at Lakeside Speedway
(Kansas City, KS), ASCS Warrior Region at Humboldt (KS) Speedway
on Friday night and ASCS Warrior vs. ASCS Red River Region at
