Tanner Carrick Set for Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA: Traveling with the Northern Auto Racing Club to Oregon and Washington the last week, Tanner Carrick showed a lot of speed during Speedweek as he now sets his sights on the Jim Raper Super Dirt Cup which is set to go green this Thursday night at Skagit Speedway.

 

“We had good speed during Speedweek, but had bad luck in the features early in the week,” Tanner Carrick explained. “The last couple of nights, we didn’t get timed in well, and that hurt our night.”

 

Carrick kicked the week-long trip north off on Wednesday night at Southern Oregon Speedway in Medford, OR. With the race ultimately being deemed complete at the 13-lap marker, the Lincoln, CA driver was credited with a fourth-place finish aboard the CVC/Cemex/California Waterfowl backed No. 83T.

 

Heading to Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, OR on Thursday night, Carrick got off to a blazing quick start as he timed in fastest in time trials, but he ran into some issues in the feature event and he was ultimately relegated to an 11thplace finish.

 

Earning quick time honors again on Friday night at Cottage Grove Speedway, Carrick eventually took the green flag from the sixth starting position after a sixth-place finish in the Dash.

 

On the bullring, Carrick worked hard searching for grip but he did slip back a few positions and capped the night off with a ninth place finish.

 

Saturday and Sunday saw Carrick’s qualifying efforts take a big hit. After being one of the fastest during the first three rounds he was 14th and 15th during the final two nights of action which makes things tough with NARC’s format.

 

The Lincoln, CA driver did what he could on a very fast Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR on Saturday night as he finished 13th, and during a nearly nonstop affair in Elma, WA he finished 12th in the feature to cap his Speedweek.

 

“Heading into Dirt Cup, we definitely are going need to be on our game in qualifying, and we need to have things go our way as well,” Carrick said. “It’s a tough race, but I know we have the speed to compete. Thanks to my team for working so hard all week and making this trip possible.”

 

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, California Waterfowl, Interstate Oil, D.R. Horton, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Hanson Truss, TC Guide Service, Eddie’s Lincoln Auto Body, Simpson Strong-Tie, A&A Concrete Supply, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support.

 

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 29, Wins: 4, Top 5’s: 16, Top 10’s: 20

 

ON TAP: Carrick is now set for Dirt Cup which is set to kick off on Thursday night at Skagit Speedway.
