Foust And Arpin Win At Thomson Motor Speedway

This weekend GRC made a stop in New England as the race was held at Thompson Motor Speedway in Connecticut. Tanner Foust just missed his weekend sweep as Volkswagen Still hold the lead.

Saturday

Heat Races & Semis:

Tanner Foust was able to sweep his heat races and won his semi-final to give him front row in the final. While the others had great battles and Foust’s teammate Scott Speed came out on top for the second semifinal victory.

Final

Tanner Foust continued his dominance as he jumped out to the lead once again.  Thus the battle for second was on. For most of the Race newcomer Mitchell De Jong had second. Then on the final lap took the joker lap and then was able to find his way around the rookie to finish second behind Tanner Foust.

Sunday

Heat And Semi Races:

Once Again Foust Swept his heat races and the semi -final. Steve Arpin came out with the victory in semi-final B.

Final:

Not any different from Saturday was Tanner Foust who jumped out to the early lead. It looked like he had the weekend sweep in the bag. Then he came in to hot into one of the corners and ended up in the tires and would not be able to finish the race. This allowed Arpin to take over the lead. Another similarity from Saturday was Speeds decision to hold the joker lap for the last lap and it payed off again as he was able to secure second place again.
