Goforth Racing Post Race Wrap Up

Holdenville OK – Goforth Racing has had a couple busy weeks of racing, competing in both MMPSA at MIR, and going directly to the ADRL event in Virginia. The MMPSA event didn’t turn out the way we hoped, with Cary qualifying in the #5 Spot and Dean in the #7 position. “We really wanted to do well at this event to move up in the points, sometimes its just not our weekend” Goforth said.
Having already committed to running two races in the same area it made sense for us to travel straight from the MIR MMPSA event to Virginia Motorsports Park for the ADRL event. It makes for a long time away from home, but makes sense financially to stay in the area. The team wanted to have a good showing at ADRL and extend Cary’s points lead.
Dean and crew have struggled with consistency, due to mechanical issues and this weekend they wanted to make sure Dean went down the track every run. “My car qualified #2, and went down the track every run, that felt really good and was a big boost of confidence that our entire organization needed.” Goforth said. “Losing in the second round to Brian Gahm, was a bit disappointing but we are going in the right direction.”
Cary Goforth had a uncharacteristic #13 qualifying spot to start from due to a broken transmission, but it didn’t slow him down, Cary advanced thru the rounds into the final. “I have to be happy, to be able to get to final rounds, we extended our points lead, and even though we are not taking home a trophy, our big picture is all about the championship and that dream is still alive and well as we find ourselves in the #1 and #4 spots in points.” Goforth said.
We have new sponsors in our race family, and we need to thank them for having confidence in our team, LAT Oil, XS Power Batteries, Sonny’s Racing Engines, Access Employer Services, and Deans Casing Service. Without the support of theses sponsors none of this would be possible.
