HARWOOD, N.D. (May 8, 2019) – It was another stout night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World for Lee Grosz Racing on Saturday night. The Harwood, N.D. driver made the 1,000-plus mile round trip to Knoxville, Iowa again last weekend and came away with a podium finish for the second time in a row.
Grosz opened the night by timing in third quick out of 31 entries before wheeling his way from sixth to third in his heat.
“We had a good heat race and moved forward fairly quick,” said Grosz. “We set up the car similar to two weeks ago when we were there last with a couple of small adjustments.”
The driver of the Jimco Enterprises / Fischer Auto Body No. 4J started on the outside of row two for the feature.
“We had good speed the whole feature,” said Grosz. “I think if I wouldn’t have made a couple of mistakes in the closing laps – I caught the leaders and jumped the cushion a couple of times and it cost me – I’m not sure if I would have gotten the win, but I think I would have at least had a shot at it.”
At the completion of the 18-lap event, Grosz drove underneath Doug Clark’s twin checkers in the third spot.
Grosz was also in action on Friday night at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. with the Property Solutions of America MSTS 360s and the Carpetland Nebraska 360s. After a third-place run in his heat, Grosz lined up in the ninth position for the 25-lap feature around the high-banked four-tenths mile oval. The defending MSTS series champion moved up two spots in the main event to come home in the seventh position.
This weekend, Grosz is planning on heading to Park Jefferson Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D. for another co-sanctioned event between the MSTS and Nebraska 360s. In three events at Park Jefferson in 2018, Grosz recorded two third-place finishes and one 10th place effort.
Lee and the entire team would like to thank all of their sponsors for their continued support!
