INDIANAPOLIS (May 15, 2017) – Brandon Morin of Jasonville, Indiana scored two consecutive podium finishes this past weekend at Chandler Speedway and Tri-State Speedway. Both the 2nd and 3rd place finishes are season best results for Morin.
Morin Racing kicked off their weekend at Chandler Speedway in Southern Indiana. Morin started 3rd in the heat race and finished 2nd. He lined up in the 4th position on the grid and raced his way to a second-place finish.
“Friday night was all about building confidence and getting comfortable in the race car,” said Morin. “We brought Donnie Gentry on board to assist with set-ups and that seemed to really help. We were going forward all night. I started 4th in the feature and the leader had a straightaway lead. I caught up to him in a couple laps after I got clear of the 3rd place car and took over 2nd. Back-to-back cautions caused me to not to be able make a run at the win, but we came home with a 2nd, which is great for us right now!”
Saturday, the No. 98 DRC/ FOXCO Engines machine took on the MSCS (Midwest Sprint Car Series) sprint cars at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana. Morin was the second quickest car in his qualifying group, putting him starting 3rd in the first heat race. He would win the heat race and start 4th in the feature. Morin came across the line in 3rd place during the feature event rounding out the podium, with Carson Short on top and Brady Short a close 2nd.
“We looked at this weekend like we had nothing to lose,” said Morin. “I just wanted another good finish. After the green flag dropped in the heat race, I went right after Brady (Short) and got by him to win the heat. He’s really good at Haubstadt, so that was a confidence booster. In the feature, we ran with Carson (Short) and Brady (Short) until we got to lapped traffic. They got away, and we ended up with a 3rd place finish, which I’m still very happy about.”
Brandon Morin returns to local racing actions this coming weekend at Bloomington Speedway Friday, May 19th and Saturday, May 20th at Lincoln Park Speedway. For a full schedule visit Brandon’s driver page at dubpubmedia.com/Brandon-Morin.
