Inside Line Promotions – BREWERTON, N.Y. (Aug. 19, 2014) – Joe Trenca was on pace for a season-best finish last Friday at Brewerton Speedway.
Unfortunately, he was caught up in a crash in the closing laps during the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints event that ended with him upside down.
After advancing from sixth to fourth place in his heat race, Trenca earned a spot in the feature redraw. He then pulled the No. 2 in the random draw to line up on the outside of the front row of the main event.
“There were three initial starts,” he said. “The first one he got me. The second one I took the lead. And the third one he went back to the lead. We fell back to fifth and then the car started coming in a lot better.”
Trenca spent the majority of the race battling for his second top five of the season and he was in contention for his first podium of the year late in the feature.
“Second to fifth place were all next to each other,” he said. “I was battling for fourth and I went under a lapped car. It came down on me and we ended upside down. I got t-boned right before I went over.”
The collision with about five laps remaining relegated Trenca to a 14th-place result.
“It definitely sucked being so good and having that happen, but that’s what happens sometimes in racing,” he said. “We’ve been upside down a lot this year so that’s a tough part about it.”
Trenca is slated to return to Pennsylvania this weekend for a pair of events. He will compete on Friday with the URC Series at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.
“I’m excited to go back down to Pennsylvania,” he said. “There’s going to be a lot of cars on Friday so just making the show would be great. Getting back on a consistent track and have some good finishes toward the end of the year is the goal.”
The weekend will wrap up on Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove.
“We’ve been really good down there this year and I’m really confident in the car,” he said.
