Moses Finishes Fifth In Miller

Miller Motorsports Park is a state-of-the-art road racing facility for automobiles, motorcycles and karts located just 35 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City in Tooele, Utah. It is considered the finest facility of its type in North America.

Opened in 2006, Miller Motorsports Park hosts many of the world's most significant racing series, including the American Le Mans Series, Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, NASCAR Grand National West Series, AMA Superbike Championship and, new for 2008, the FIM Superbike World Championship, one of the top three racing series in the world.



In Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Series West race, Moses Smith qualified the #16 Hasa Pool Products / White Flyer Toyota Camry in eighth position for the start of the Miller Motorsports Park “125.” However, after misfortune forced the team to pit three times, Moses found himself in eighteenth place at the race’s halfway point.

The #16 Hasa Pool Products / White Flyer Toyota Camry battled back hard and returned to the top ten on lap twenty-five. However, Smith reported brake issues and the team were worried about them overheating. Two consequential yellow flag conditions assisted Moses in maintaining his brakes.

After the last yellow flag, with only ten laps to go, Moses charged forward from eighth place for a fifth place finish.

The team would like to give a special thanks to Blimpie, "America's Sub Shop" for supplying the teams with a scrumptious lunch on Friday for practice and Saturday’s race.

Hey Moses' Mom!! I am fairly certain that I enjoyed our meet & greet more than you! Was a great day! Hope Moses runs well at Colorado. Hershel runs road courses exclusively, so no plans for Colorado. I most assuredly will follow Moses via your blog & tweets as well as his!

Lets put our heads together (when you have time), regarding your Q/A idea for H! Would be fun! ;-)

Hoping to post photos tonight! May need your email addy, but will follow up on that with a DM if so.

Cheers...
