@Garyklutt • @NASCAR •#NASCARPintysSeries • EDMONTON, AB (July 26, 2016)-  Klutt had his eyes set on the podium after the first half of the ‘Alberta Has New Energy 300’ where he managed to move up from 12th to seventh position.

Following the pit stop, the #59 driven over by another car that destroyed his front end and tearing the brake line that left him without any brakes.

“I came into the pits and the crew changed the line and taped up the damage. Within the next 50 laps I had worked my way back up to sixth, and the car was on fire, but just as I was battling with the #47 for fifth, who ended up second, the damage from being run over caught up with us and the lower control arm came loose, and we found a good sized leak in the front right”, says Klutt.

Following the crash, Klutt managed to hang on for the next 100 laps and still capture ninth position.

Klutt said, “it would have a been nice to be on the podium with a torn up car but just wasn’t the way the night went.”

After the damage caused by this week’s race, Klutt mentioned, “we are working hard to get everything repaired and will be heading to Saskatoon on Tuesday for the race Wednesday.”

“I’m really looking forward to Saskatoon, I think it’s my favorite oval stop of the season.”
