MIRA LOMA, California -- Scott Dodd drove his #9 ASA Speed Truck to another top five finish at Irwindale Speedway Saturday night. This was Dodd’s third consecutive top five finish with two fourths and this weekends third place finish.
In the first practice session Dodd was fourth fastest of the 26 truck field. Before the second practice session some changes were made to try to improve the lap times, unfortunately the changes went the wrong way and we lost some time ending up ninth fast. In qualifying Dodd was able to post a time of 20.056 which made him fifth fastest. This was Dodd’s first twin 50 race with the Speed Trucks. After battling for the first 50 laps Dodd had moved up to third place.
The top five were putting on a close battle in the second 50 lap half of the race, a yellow flag came out on lap 99 with Dodd in third. With only a green, white & checkered flag Dodd was able to maintain his position and finish third, which was his best finish this season.
