Flick Falls Short Of Lernerville Title Friday, Shows Experience & Speed At Port Royal Saturday
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE By Shawn Brouse
Apollo, Pa- Flyin’ AJ Flick came up second in the sprint car main event at Lernerville Speedway on Friday night and fell just short of recording another track title at the Sarver oval.
Flick and the Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, Fence Maintenance Service, Ferguson Heating & Air Conditioning, Chernega Construction, Flick Family No. 2 machine ended up third in the season point standings, just 10 points out of the title.
And then on Saturday night, Flick and crew ended up seventh in the sprint car main at Port Royal Speedway but Flick saw his run from 21st in the feature in a very positive light for he and the entire team.
“Had a great heat race start but ran out of talent and blasted the backstretch wall and destroyed the right rear wheel. Hung on to finish 6th. Won the B-Main and drove strongly from 21st to 7th in the A-Main with no cautions,” he said.
“I’m extremely proud of the crew and car. I think tonight was a fantastic showcase of the speed we’ve picked up this year. To be able to screw up, recover, and pass racecars like we did, is a huge confidence boost for myself and our team.”
The 26-year old pilot has three wins on the season at Lernerville, one at Sharon Speedway and he won the biggest race of his career, worth some $12,000 at the Port Royal Speedway on August 3.
Flick was the Lernerville track titlist in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
The Apollo pilots career sprint car win total now stands at 22 as he looks for more during the rest of his 2019 sprint car tour.
The AJ Flick No. 2 sprint car team wants to thank all of its sponsors for their support.
