From there we drove away from the field and got the win,” Taylor shared. “We had a lot of confidence heading into Thursday’s show, but it just proved to be one of those nights.

“Thing started off good with us earning the pole position for the feature. However, there was rain moving in, so they rushed the A-Main to the track right after the B-Main. Where we parked, I couldn’t hear the pit speakers. We were late to the grid, so they put us to the tail. In the first five or six laps I had around passed half the field and was feeling good about my chances. Then, out of nowhere a guy spins in front of me. I had nowhere to go and drilled him, tearing up our race car. Just one of those deals, but man it was disappointing because we had a great car. We’ll regroup and get ready for the next one.”
