BRIGHTON, ON- The 2014 season has clearly not gone the way Greg Belyea and the Excel Tower Racing Team had anticipated before the drop of the first green flag of the season a couple months ago. They have had their struggles, but they continue to work hard to get the car figured out. After taking last weekend off, Belyea returned to Brighton Speedway this week, looking for a strong finish.
The night started off well, as Belyea set the pace early, as the fastest car on the track in opening practice. In the qualifying heat race, Belyea started from seventh and moved through the field to finish with a solid third place run. After starting 9th in the 30 lap main event, Belyea had worked his way to seventh before being involved in an incident in turn one on lap nine. He would have to start from the rear of the field, but it only take a few laps and Greg was back up to the position he was in before the incident. By lap 17, Belyea as was inside the top five and remained in fifth over the final 13 laps of the race.
“The last few weeks have been pretty disappointing, so it feels good to come back with a good finish tonight”, says Belyea. “It wasn’t pretty, having to come from the back after the earlier incident, but we will take it and move on to next week, and hopefully we can build on this going forward the rest of the season”.
This coming weekend will be the Canada Day Championship at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night, with time trials scheduled for 5pm.
