Race Day For Theriault In Virginia
It's a big day for Fort Kent's Austin Theriault as he tries to get the #92 Ricky Benton Racing Team truck into the NASCAR race in Martinsville, Virginia.
This will be the second race for this part-time team. Theriault and the team missed getting into the field at the Daytona race in February. With no provisional points to fall back on, Theriault has to get into the race by having a fast truck in qualifying this morning.
In the first practice session on Friday, Theriault and the #92 team was 22nd fastest on the track with a speed of 93.038 MPH.
In the second practice session, the speed was slightly faster, 93.428 MPH. That was 22nd fastest.
There are close to 40 teams trying to get into the race and only 32 trucks will make it.
The all important pole qualifying is this morning at 10:40am.
The Martinsville 250 Race is at 2pm.
