Sanchez started on the front row for the feature and lead the first few laps. The Snap on Tolls #463 dropped back a few places. Unfortunately, the feature was rain shortened, leaving Sanchez with a 6th place finish.
“Friday night at Limaland was the best the car has been all year and it’s very exciting to be on the right track. I have learned so much already this year and plan to get a lot more seat time.”
Sunday the team traveled to Eldora Speedway. Sanchez finished 3rd in his heat race. Unfortunately, Electrical issues with the distributor lead the 463 to a DNF. However, the car is already fixed and the team is looking forward to this weekend.
