July 15, 2014- After an impressive win last week at Brockville Speedway in the 50 lap Ogilvie’s Triple Crown Series event, Danny O’Brien and his team were looking forward to the opportunity to do it all over again this past week with events at Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night and Brockville Speedway on Saturday.
O’Brien began the weekend with the usual visit to Mohawk International Raceway. After starting sixth in the qualifier, O’Brien worked his way forward and was up to second at the checkered flag. After making some adjustments to the car, Danny returned later in the evening for the 25 lap main event, starting from the 11th position. The entire race went caution free, and passing was at a premium as the field got spread out. O’Brien would end the night with an eighth place result.
“The car wasn’t bad, but it just seemed to take a while to get going”, says O’Brien. “It is something that we will need to work on real quick. “It was hard to do anything tonight as the field gets spread out and no cautions to get us bunched up again. We will take it and move on to the next race”.
Brockville Speedway was up next on Saturday night.
There is no question that O’Brien has been the car to beat so far into the 2014 season at the BOS. His win last week was his third of the season, and by the end of Saturday night he would have four.
He started the 30 lap main event from 12th place and was up to fifth before they had completed lap ten. O’Brien continued to march towards the front, and by lap 20 he was in second place and all over the race leader waiting for the right opportunity.
A caution with 10 laps remaining regrouped the field and Danny continued to apply heavy pressure and by lap 24 he made his way to the front of the pack. A lap 29 yellow slowed the field one last time but O’Brien wouldn’t be denied his fourth BOS victory of the season. He now has a commanding 42 point lead in his quest for his 11th Brockville track title.
“The car was pretty much perfect tonight”, says O’Brien. I have to thank all the crew here for their help and all the sponsors as well for their support. I would also like to thank the great fans that come out each week and support us”.
Danny O’Brien would like to thank 1000 Islands RV Centre, Pat’s Auto Centre, BOB FM, Ponte Bros. Masonry, Morrison Racing Engines, Snap-On Adam Way, Bicknell Racing Products, ATC World Class Trailers and Integra Racing Shocks for their continuous support throughout the 2014 season.
