(MOORESVILLE, N.C. - July 16, 2012) - The excitement of a new chassis and new paint scheme for the No. 04 VAMortgage.com Dodge Charger was overshadowed for Larry Barford Jr. by the handling issues that plagued the car at Iowa Speedway Friday.
Larry and the C2M crew worked throughout the day Friday and during pit stops to better the car, salvaging a 23rd finish in the Prairie Meadows 200.
The first and second practice sessions were held under overcast skies and the threat of rain. As the team tweaked the set up of the car for those track conditions for qualifying, the weather broke and the sun shone brightly. This heated the track, loosening the cars for qualifying. Adding to set up challenges was the fact that the race started just as the sun set, leading to an ever changing track as it cooled and the lights came on.
"Its a shame that we had such a hard time dialing in to the handling of the #04 Dodge Charger. I know that everyone at C2M worked really hard on the prep of the car. I was really looking forward to racing at Iowa, it's the kind of track that I really enjoy, the kind where you have to be right up on the wheel and working it the whole time. I want to thank everyone at VAMortgage.com, 1st Mariner Mortgage, Trauma Doc, and Madison Settlement Services for all their help so far this season. I am looking forward to giving them a better performance at Chicagoland this Saturday" said Barford after the race.
Larry’s next race will be the Ansell ActivArmr 150 to take place at Chicagoland Speedway at 4 pm to be televised on SPEED on Saturday July 21st.
