August 15, 2000 (Palmdale, Calif.) - Sean Woodside, driver of the REF Motorsports #4 Pontiac in the Featherlite Southwest Series, NASCAR Touring, has a long history with the short tracks in the west, but, to date, there has been no entry for an event at Colorado National Speedway on his stat sheets.
That will change with this Saturday evening’s NAPA 125 at CNS’ .375-mile oval.
Woodside and the REF team head to CNS a little disappointed to have slipped one spot to fourth in the point standings following last weekend’s engine problems, but eager to make a good showing this weekend.
“It was a disappointment to be running so well, then to have to park the car before the end of the race,” commented Woodside. “We broke a rocker arm, and there just wasn’t enough time left to fix it and get back on the track.”
Woodside was on the move and heading for the top five last weekend in the Sandia 125 at Sandia Motorsports Park when the broken rocker arm cut his evening short with just 94 laps complete, resulting in a 19th place finish.
Woodside continued, “Running in the Southwest Series with Bob Farmer and the team has given me a chance to experience tracks I might not otherwise have had an opportunity to race at. I’m looking forward to this weekend.”
Team owner Bob Farmer commented, “Last weekend’s engine problem was unfortunate and totally unforeseen. The car was running great up until that point, and we expect a strong run this weekend.”
