Inside Line Promotions – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 29, 2020) – Scott Bogucki recorded a season-best runner-up result last Thursday during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour’s return to racing.
The SawBlade.com sponsored driver charged from fifth to win a heat race at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan. – site of the first series event since early March. Bogucki made the feature redraw and pulled the No. 1 to line up on the pole.
“We were just too free, I knew about five laps in I was in trouble. I wasn’t going to be good for all 30 laps. It sucks to lead that long and fade, but when they came on the radio and said there were 17 laps to go I knew I’d be lucky to hold on.”
Bogucki led 23 of the first 24 laps before falling to second. The runner-up result was his third podium this year.
Two days later the team ventured to I-30 Speedway, where Bogucki maneuvered from fifth to third place in a heat race. He started third in a qualifier, but contact with another driver – twice – relegated him to the pits early.
“I got wiped out twice in the qualifier, in the B Main someone hit an infield tire and pushed up the track to hit the wall. I had to swerve to miss him. I went through the transponder line first and I was penalized two spots after the checkered flag. I know the rule. It’s just really frustrating.”
Bogucki placed second in the race to earn a transfer into the main event, but he was credited with a fourth-place finish because of the penalty.
Next up is a doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, this Friday and Saturday.
“We’ll get some laps before the Knoxville Nationals, I came in last year with zero laps and I know it hurt me.”
