Revolution Racing’s Michael Cherry put up his best qualifying effort of the year at Hickory Motor Speedway Saturday night, qualifying third for the 100 lap feature. Unfortunately for Cherry, a brush with the wall midway through the race knocked the exhaust loose on the No. 2 MBC Group Late Model and ended his night early.
“It’s a shame. We had such a good run going and we knocked ourselves out of contention battling for the lead,” said Cherry. “It was a disappointing end, but we’ve definitely hit on something here that we can bring back next week and hopefully make another run at it.”
Cherry was credited with a 10th-place finish.
Cherry’s Revolution Racing teammates Jessica Brunelli and Becca Kasten also competed Saturday night. Kasten qualified eighth and finished seventh in the No. 5 AirTight Late Model. Brunelli qualified 11th and finished ninth, despite an ignition box issue on the No. 1 Late Model early in the race.
The Revolution Racing Late Models were also at Tri-County Motor Speedway on Friday night, but the race was cancelled due to inclement weather.
Brunelli, Cherry and Kasten will race Twin 35’s at Tri-County Motor Speedway Friday, June 11 before returning to Hickory Motor Speedway for a 50 lap event on Saturday, June 12.
