June 4, 2013- In an effort to get his 2013 season back on track after struggling in the early part of the season, Greg Belyea diverted from the ordinary routine and made a rare start at Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports on Friday night before returning home to Brighton Speedway on Saturday night.
Having to start from the rear of the field in the Late Model main event due to the track handicapping for non regular competitors, Belyea knew it would be a good challenge for the team to make their way to the front. He moved forward at the drop of the green flag and was soon challenging for a top five position. At the checkered flag, Belyea crossed the finish line with a solid third place run.
“It was a good run for us tonight”, says Belyea after the race. “We brought the car home with a good finish and hopefully we can build on this throughout the season”.
After making some changes to the car and putting in the setup for Brighton Speedway, they were ready to return to their home track looking for another strong run. Just before race time though, rain began to fall and track officials were forced to cancel their racing program for the night.
Belyea will return to Brighton Speedway this coming Saturday night, but looking ahead, the month of June will be a very busy month for Belyea and the Excel Tower team. Wednesday June 19th they will be at Can Am Motorsports Park, followed by the highly anticipated World of Outlaw Late Model Excel Tower 50 at Brighton Speedway on Thursday, June 20th. Friday, June 21st is reserved as a raindate for the Brighton race. On Saturday, June 22nd the Late Models will be at Brockville Speedway for a Go Nuclear Late Model Series race, and back with the World of Outlaws on Sunday, June 23rd at Cornwall Motor Speedway.
