Concord, N.C. (August 16, 2013) – Annabeth Barnes and Jack Madrid headed north to Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA last weekend, to compete in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) Twin 125s. The field was stacked with competitors, including previous Series champion, Lee Pulliam. This was both drivers first time competing at Motor Mile Speedwaybut Barnes and Madrid didn’t let the competition intimidate them.
The starting lineup for the first race was based on qualifying lap speed, while the starting lineup for the second race was based on finishing position of the first race. Madrid qualified 15th in his No. 4 Toyota Camry, and Barnes qualified 16th in her No. 21 Toyota Camry out of 21 competitors. Both drivers ran a clean race and kept their cars out of trouble, setting them up for success in the final Twin 125 of the night.
Madrid started the second race 13th and as soon as the green flag fell he began making his way through the field. He had a competitive car, and was able to work his way into the top-10 halfway through the race. A late race caution gave him the time he needed to work his way to an eighth place finish. Barnes finished the night 12th, after starting 17th.
The next race for both drivers will be tomorrow, August 17th, at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, N.C. Follow us on twitter @RevRacin for live updates.
