El Cajon, CA – After three rounds of racing on the short tracks of Dodge City and Eldora, Scott Douglas was looking forward to racing the new truck at the big free flowing all-natural terrain layout in Bark River, Michigan. The AMSOIL/Borla Exhaust/BFGoodrich Tire Ford F-150 ran well in practice and qualifying, but on the longer race runs, the team saw unexpected changes in the race truck’s handling.
The weekend began earlier than originally scheduled, the one rained out Eldora round of racing was scheduled Friday evening with practice and qualifying only a couple of hours before the drop of the green flag.
The qualifying session saw the #7 AMSOIL Ford stopped the watches with the third quickest time in the field. Even with the solid qualifying time, the team knew there was room for improvement. A couple of minor changes went into the chassis setup and then it was time for ten laps around the 1.75 mile layout.
