ST. HELENA, Calif. (June 22, 2020) – Back-to-back starts with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series resulted in one top-ten finish for Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing, highlighting the Tri-State Speedway doubleheader in Haubstadt, Indiana, with a tenth-place performance on Friday night, June 19. Abreu started seventh on the feature grid, earning his way into a fourth-row starting spot by way of dash result. The St. Helena, California-native kicked-off the evening by recording the seventh-fastest time during qualifying time trials, following that effort with a runner-up finish during heat race action.
Although missing the top-ten on Saturday, Abreu earned his way into the televised World of Outlaws main event and was scored 21st after starting 22nd, solidifying a place in the 40-lap program by way of runner-up finish during the evening’s Last Chance Showdown.
Abreu’s tenth-place outcome on Friday bumped his season top-ten total to three, two of which against the Greatest Show On Dirt.
“If we keep plugging away, sooner or later the momentum will shift and we’ll find what we’ve been looking for,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Fatheadz Eyewear/ShopRico.com/Self Made Racing/Salty’s BBQ/Dancer Logistics/The Wiser Agency/No. 24 sprint car. “It felt good to get a top-ten on Friday, but we are out here to win races. I don’t think we’ll ever be satisfied until that happens. Regardless, I’m proud of my team and I’m proud to represent all of our great partners. We have a great family built around this team and that’s most important to us.”
