Jeremy Frankoski Taking Recent Efforts In Stride; Looking Forward To Waterford

HUNTERSVILLE, North Carolina (August 12, 2011) - - Former USAC Ford Focus champion Jeremy Frankoski has endured his ups and downs throughout the 2011 racing season. However, any driver knows that despite the bumps along the way, you can never give up and just have to keep fighting.

With top-five efforts at Seekonk Speedway and Lee Speedway respectively, Frankoski’s inquires about a track he had never seen before were about to come to fruition.

Description: IMG_9688Tackling Twin State Speedway was a first for Frankoski in 2011. Despite the unknowns, the developing Late Model driver embraced the opportunity with excitement. Weather played havoc with the teams allowing only one round of hot laps. With heat races being canceled, the field was sent right into the main attraction.

Starting fourth, Frankoski in his No. 7NY IGA / Lucas Oil Mopar quickly was on the prowl with him battling for the lead by lap six. Heading into turn two, he attempted to take the lead but the two automobiles made contact forcing the Adam Cantor Racing driver to back out of the throttle to avoid a mishap. Quickly finding himself on the back bumper of the leader once I again on lap nine, Frankoski entered turn three too deep and spun the No. 7NY IGA / Lucas Oil Mopar. The incident brought out a caution which sent him to the rear of the field.

With not many laps remaining and one determined driver, Frankoski was able to slice and dice his way up the leader board but when the checkered flag fell, he landed fifth overall.

“I really feel like we had the car to win. Unfortunately, I made a mistake that cost my team a victory,” Frankoski admitted. “My team has been working non-stop on this car and they have earned the right to stand in victory lane and celebrate. I’m going to be determined now more than ever to make sure that happens.”

With Waterford Speedway next on deck for Frankoski and his ACR team, the driver looks for a little redemption on Saturday.

“We’re going this weekend to try and bring the trophy home,” he said. “I would like to make it up to my guys for what happened at Twin State. Everything has really come together nicely over the past few races, we just haven’t been able to seal the deal. This weekend, I think everyone will see that we won’t go down without a fight.”

YouTube Reach: With NEMA not sporting live television coverage of their event and in an effort to draw new fans and allow his current fans to stay in the loop, Frankoski has created his own YouTube channel that sparks the action from inside the cockpit.
