“It was a fun weekend. I was actually looking forward to getting back there and turning some laps,” said Lee. “The track was really nice both nights. They left it on the drier side with a little bit of a cushion. I thought it was pretty racy and a good weekend all around.”
Lee showed good speed right away on Friday night to begin the weekend.
“I was running fourth in the feature with about five to go and we got into lapped traffic there pretty heavy,” he said. “I got to thinking that Zomer and Dobmeier were right on my tail because they hadn’t passed me yet. I had been following a lapped car there for about four or five laps so I figured I had to do something. I drove it into turn one a little too deep and looped it, but kept the car going. We fell back to ninth, but I think we had a car that could’ve finished top four, which would have locked ourselves into the show on Saturday.”
On Saturday, the Home of Economy / Amity Technology crew unloaded for the final night of action at River Cities.
“Every time we hit the track we tried some new things on the car,” Lee said. “Being that I’ve never ran an Eagle Chassis before, it took me a while to get comfortable. I think we hit something that worked pretty good Saturday night in the feature. “
Lee started fourth for the 35-lap A-main and ran inside the top five for the majority of the event. Around lap 10, Lee moved up to the third position behind Casey Mack and Mark Dobmeier.
The track started laying rubber in the closing stages and Lee got moved out of the groove on a late-race restart. As a result, he got shuffled back to sixth, where he hung on to take the checkers.
The sixth place run marks Lee’s best finish of the season with the NOSA Sprints, besting his eighth place run at Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minn. earlier in the year.
“Thanks to Jordan Adams Racing team for giving me the opportunity to drive their car. I had a blast working with their guys. We made the car better every time we went out and had a lot of fun.”
