“We had some other plans lined up for this weekend but we made some last minute changes” said Colton Flinner, “We wanted to head to Georgia again for a big FASTRAK event, but we decided to head to Pittsburgh instead…we are still trying to figure some things out as a team…we have been having a lot of bad luck with pill draws lately as well…hopefully staying close to home this weekend will allow us to build some momentum, and hopefully earn our first win.”

Beattie Career Center, no. 75 crate late model team have potential plans to head north to the Eriez Speedway in Erie, Pennsylvania for their ‘opening night’ program presented by Coors Light.

“Eriez is the plan for Sunday as of now” explained Flinner, “We haven’t been there in a while and our last visit wasn’t very good for us…there are a lot of big shows coming up in the next few weeks so hopefully we can work the bugs out this weekend and get ourselves ready…I can’t thank all of my supporters and sponsors enough…everyone that is behind this team works really hard and I appreciate that so much…hopefully I can repay the favor and earn them a win!”
