HARWOOD, N.D. (April 8, 2021) – A long offseason came to an end last weekend for the Lee Grosz Racing team as they opened 2021 at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska.
Grosz was fast out of the box on Friday night, racing to a heat race win to kick off the weekend.
That put him fourth on the starting grid for the main event.
“In the feature, we weren’t very good early and slid backward,” said Grosz. “Later on in the race, the track came to us and we were able to work our way back up to third. It was a good run for the first night out against some good competition.”
The following night, a fifth-place run in heat race action buried the No. 4J in the 13th starting position for the feature.
“The track rubbered up pretty quick and became a one-lane deal, but our car was good overall.”
Grosz worked his way from 13th to finish eighth to cap off the weekend.
Next up, the Harwood-based team will head down to Jefferson, S.D. for the South Dakota Sprint Car Nationals at Park Jefferson Speedway this weekend.
Going back to 2017, Grosz has collected seven top-five finishes at Park Jefferson, including five podium finishes over that span, which covers a total of 10 events. In his most recent trip to the speedway, which came last May, Grosz picked up a fifth-place finish.
Lee and the entire team would like to thank all their sponsors for their continued support!
