| SOLID START TO SECOND HALF
July 10, 2002 - Baltimore, MD
Jennerstown Speedway was the site of the Pennsylvania 300 which marked the beginning of the 2nd half of the 2002 ASA Racing season. JC was excited to be back in action at the familiar Pennsylvania ½ mile. Jennerstown is the third and last east coast stop on the 2002 ASA Tour.
"It's great to be close to home with the support of family and friends," commented Beattie. "It makes for a really fun weekend of racing."
However, the weekend did not start as ATI Performance Racing would have liked it to. The team suffered an early set back when the primary ATI #09 had some engine trouble late in practice on Saturday. The team pulled out the back up car and had little time to prepare for qualifying.
Due to the mechanical problem, JC was set to start deep in the 33-car field yet he was determined to pilot the ATI Chevy Monte Carlo to a strong finish. Beattie kept the #09 out of trouble and moved up through the field picking up 11 spots and crossed the stripe in 17th place. JC ran hard and smart all day while the crew did an excellent job in preparing the back up car for Sunday's 300.
"We have to stay after it each week and finish races," said JC. " This is a good start for the rest of the season".
Pole-sitter Butch Miller inherited the lead on lap 271 when Joey Clanton and Kevin Cywinski made contact in turn 4. From there, Miller held off a spirited charge of rookie David Stremme to bag the win in the Pennsylvania 300 presented Jani-King.
The 2002 ASA Racing Series heads back to the midwest to Salem Speedway in Salem, IN for the Tecumseh 300 on Saturday night, July 20, 2002. The race will be telecast on tape-delay on TNN: The National Network.
