RAIN SPOILS THE RBR TEAM’S TRUCK SERIES DEBUT
March 30th, 2010
Martinsville, VA – The #92 RBR team was forced to load up Friday and come back home after the rain forced NASCAR to cancel qualifying. The skies were overcast throughout the day as testing went well for the #92 fleetHQ / BTS Tire & Wheel Distributors team. Driver, Dennis Setzer was very comfortable in the truck and was sitting 15th fastest on the practice charts. As qualifying time approached so did the rain. After waiting out the weather for a couple hours, NASCAR had no choice but to cancel the qualifying and start the race by owner points. This was not good for the RBR Team as they are new to the circuit and had no owner points to fall back on.
“We really wish the weather had cooperated with us”, said team owner Ricky Benton. “The team worked well together all day and Dennis was very good in practice. We all felt we would be able to qualify in the top ten pretty easily but the weather was out of our control.” Kevin Harvick, after being fastest in practice, went on to win the Kroger 250 at the Martinsville Speedway.
