MIRA LOMA, California- Scott Dodd got the opportunity Saturday night to run two new divisions, the King Taco Super Trucks and a Legend car. Paul and Dave from the Super Trucks gave Dodd a call on Thursday and asked if he would like to run their #16 K1 Speed Super Truck for them on Saturday. Dodd who was already scheduled to run a Legend car for Louis Mammolito was up for the chance to get behind the wheel of a Super Truck,. Dodd was a fierce competitor in the ASA Speed Trucks and was anxious to drive another truck.
Dodd driver of the family owned #25 Whelen NASCAR Super Late Model was not to happy with his practice and qualifying times so the team went to work on the Legend and the Super Truck.
The #9 Legend started in the 25th position and had moved up to 14th before contact with a competitor with only a few laps to go knocked the steering out of alignment. Dodd ended up having to pull of the track with two laps to go. Dodd had the #16 Super Truck waiting for him for the next race. Dodd started in the 16th position and just started passing trucks one at a time. With 13 laps to go in the 40 lap race Dodd was up to ninth. With 10 to go Dodd was able to pass a few more trucks and cross the finish line in the 6th position. Dodd was awarded the Hard Charger Award for his efforts and was able to thank K1 Speed, Paul and Dave from Super Trucks and of course the fans for all their support.
Dodd is sponsored by Lucas Oil Products, So. Cal Pipe Trades, K & N Filters, Nu Tech Industrial Supplies, RBR Differentials, Bob Dogger Horse Shoeing, Van Gordon and Brown Performance and Delson Products.
Dodd would like to give a special thanks to Louis Mammolito and Paul and Dave from the Super Trucks for all their help and support. For more information about becoming involved with Scott Dodd Racing or any questions visit www.scottdodd.com or call 909-237-9105
