POST-RACE REPORT: KNOXVILLE
Knoxville, Iowa (June 20, 2022) - With the eight week stretch of the season nearing its end, G2G Racing was looking for a good run out of its No. 46 SparkS Energy Toyota Tundra on Saturday Evening. Unfortunately, a good run turned sour in Bryson Mitchell’s first career start.
In the two practice sessions, Mitchell took a conservative approach running towards the back of the leaderboard. This slated him to start 10th in his Heat race, the next evening.
In his heat race, Mitchell methodically moved his way forward, finishing 8th. This would give him the 28th starting position in the evening’s Clean Harbors 150.
As the race started, Mitchell settled in, working his way to the front. He quickly started picking off trucks. By the end of stage 1, Mitchell found himself inside the Top-15, running 14th. The second highest running position that G2G Racing has been in all season.
As stage 2 started, a quick caution occurred, but this is where Mitchell’s evening went sour.
During the caution, he brought the truck to the attention of the crew, to discover a developing issue with the rear end. The crew was able to rectify it, but Mitchell lost three laps to the leaders.
Once the action on track continued, Mitchell looked for any way to get his laps back. Then, he day went sour for good, as something in the rear end finally went bad. This forced him behind the wall. After some time looking over the truck, the team determined that it could not be fixed at the track. Thus, ending his evening. He was credited with a 33rd place finish.
The team will load back up and head to the Music City for the series next race, the Rackley Roofing 200 at the Nashville Superspeedway. The action is slated to start at 8:00pm Eastern, with live coverage on Fox Sports 1 and SiriusXM Channel 90.
