"Room for Improvement"
Team 117 ran strong in Hagerstown, but fell off at the end. Hirthler qualified both small block and big block cars in the heat race evens. Hirthler charged forward from his 16th starting position in the big block race and moved into the top 10 early. After the track changed midway through Hirthler fell outside the top ten eventually finishing 13th place with his effort.
Hirthler had different results in the small block feature, the track was rubbered up and locked down making passing tough to say the least. Hirthler challenged forward until contact with the inside guardrail ended his afternoon early.
Team 117 thanks the fans for following and supporting us this season and look forward to an exciting 2011 season. Check back often for off season updates.
