Hanover, PA (April 10, 2023) – Williams Grove finally got their season opener in on Friday night but to say the night did not go as planned for Dylan and the Gobrecht Motorsports Team would be an understatement. After a third place finish in the point standings in 2022, Norris was looking to come out of the gate strong to back up last year’s success at the famous half-mile. Dylan started the night timing third quickest in his time trial group which put him second for the start of heat 2, but Norris would not be able to make the call for his heat race, “We blew a motor Friday night in warmups and didn’t have one that had enough horsepower to put in to be worth our time.”
The team went to work and swapped out motors to get ready for Lincoln on Saturday night. Dylan started seventh in his heat race and drove up to a fourth place finish which lined him up 11th for the 30-lap feature. Despite the drive forward, the team faced yet another engine failure, “We blew another motor in the heat race Saturday and swapped motors for the feature.” Dylan made it out on to the track to be pushed off for the feature but ended up requesting his two minutes in the work area before getting lined up for the green flag. The team was not able to get the car back out and Dylan forfeited his starting spot.
Having gone through a weekend with so many engine issues the Gobrecht Motorsport Team’s schedule is up in the air at the moment. Norris is actively working on getting a plan together to make sure the team does not miss any races.
