have always run well at,” the driver of the No.

night. We’re looking to put
together a good weekend.”

win at Lake Ozark Speedway on July 28 of last

start to the night, Bellm bounced back to score
a top-ten finish.
“We started seventh in

wall and knocked the Jacobs ladder off.”
Bellm bounced right

rallied from 18th in the “A” Main to

we’re looking forward to more opportunities to
race with the 410.”
