We had a decent run last week and we just need to keep improving each race we are in.  Everyone on this Wauters Motorsports team worked hard to get the car ready for this race and I’m looking forward to running in the Rattler 250.  Every track we will race on this season is one I haven’t been on before, so it will definitely be great learning experiences for me.”

“I really was looking for the win at Dillon.  We ran second the entire race,” Spencer Wauters said. “The track had been weeping up off turn four in the second groove from the rain on Friday.  That weeping caused me to spin the tires all the way down the front stretch on a green white checkered and lost a couple spots ended up fifth.”

IMG_1229“I was hoping for a top-10 for these Wauters Motorsports guys in my first late model race with them,” Will Gallaher said.  “We’ll take the 11th-place finish and I’ll keep working on getting better and hopefully get a better finish at the Rattler 250 next weekend.”
