Despite being deemed an involved car in a wreck mid-way through the feature, Eric Yorke rebounded for a top-10 finish on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway.
Yorke started off the night solidly, placing second in his first heat, followed by a victory in the second qualifier.
Starting 18th for the 25-lap feature, he would escape the three wrecks in the first three wrecks without any damage, allowing him to move up through the field. Restarting single-file per the speedway’s discretion, he continued to move forward, passing his DY Racing teammate Lisa DeLeeuw for seventh at Lap 7. He then passed two more cars in the next couple of laps, allowing him to break into the top-five. Yorke then looked to get by Samantha Shaw for fourth, but contact happened, resulting in Shaw spinning and the fourth caution on Lap 9. As a result, Yorke was sent to the tail of the field as an involved car.
Restarting 15th, he began to move forward once again, making his way into the top-10 before the fifth caution flag flew on Lap 14 due to an incident on the frontstretch. With the track having a curfew, the decision was then made by race officials to throw the checkered flag on the event, despite having only 14 of 25 laps complete. As a result, Yorke was credited with a ninth-place finish.
Yorke and DY Racing are proud to be supported by Can-Alignment Motorsports, Solex Steel, Partimer Signs, Skytec Rentals, Budget Tire, Scentsy Consultant – Lisa DeLeeuw, and Cabral Racing Promotions.
