Bear Boasts 10th at 5 Flags Speedway in Southern Super Series Race with Wauters Motorsports

Pensacola, FL (April 30, 2016)-Quinnton Bear in his second start at 5 Flags Speedway posted a 10th place finish in the Deep South Crane Blizzard Series #1 Southern Super Series (SSS) race Friday night.

IMG_3165Bear piloting the No. 5 Sparco Wauters Motorsports Super Late Model (SLM) Toyota Camry was fastest in final practice, qualified seventh and with the invert started the 125 lap race on the outside front row.

Bear dropped back in the top-10 to preserve his Sparco Camry but midway through the race the car became free, not allowing the Avon, IN driver to get back up to the top-five.

Quinnton Bear:

“The Sparco Camry was really good early on (in the race).  I dropped back to save my stuff and was just cruising.  During the long run the car started to get free around lap 60.  After that, I could never find a rhythm and put together consistent laps.  I feel like I learned a lot and will be better when we come back, for sure.  I have to give a huge thank you to everyone at Wauters (Motorsports) for giving me a good piece.  Driver just wasn’t 100%, but we will be back for the next Blizzard race and will be a lot better.”
