Eric Caudell carries his momentum, new sponsor at Kansas Speedway
After a ninth place finish last weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, Eric Caudell and the # 7 CCM Racing team are heading to Kansas Speedway this Saturday for the Dutch Boy 150 of the ARCA Menards Series, with Cattle Five B on the Hood of the car. , a new sponsor for the team.
The last time the series took place at Kansas Speedway was in October 2020, where Caudell won his second career top 10, finishing the race in 10th place. In fact, in six career starts on the 1.5-mile track, Caudell has three finishes of 12th or better.
After a strong race at Talladega Superspeedway and with some positive results previously at Kansas Speedway, confidence levels are high heading into this weekend.
“I have no doubts that the car is running well and that we are able to replicate our performance from last year,” said Caudell. “Also, build on what I learned last year as it was my first really good experience with an asymmetric rear car. Before, we didn’t really set up the settings well… I didn’t trust the car, so I didn’t trust myself, so I was really conservative. Last year I got in the car, the car felt great, and I was able to hold the pedal down to the ground and carry a lot of speed and we probably ran one of the best intermediate races we’ve had. run.
Team leader and Kansas native Jeremy Petty also has high expectations and expects to run well in this weekend’s race.
“I was very happy with the way the car has driven the last two races,” said Petty. “It has been very consistent. It has not been erratic. I kind of have a tackle setup for Kansas which is doing really well for this track. It’s very consistent. The car will do the same for Eric lap after lap. He won’t be surprised. … If we don’t come out of there with a 12th place or better, I will be disappointed.
The Dutch Boy 150 will be a 100-lap race and will take place on Saturday, May 1 at 1:30 p.m. ET and can be viewed on FS1 and Fox Sports Go. Radio coverage can also be heard on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM (XM channel 391, online channel 981).
