Bryan Hulbert – SAPULPA, Okla. (June 23, 2020) While Blake Hahn has been able to get behind the wheel several times as tracks begin to open across the United States, the driver of the DriveWFX.com No. 52 is ready to get back on tour with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network this week.
In action at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan. on Thursday, June 25, the second stop on the weekend lands the team at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. on Saturday, June 27.
"I'm looking forward to this weekend. We're going to two tracks that I enjoy racing at, especially I-30 Speedway. That's hands down one of my favorite places to race," explained Hahn.
Able to get some laps in since the world went into lockdown over COVID-19 in both Sprint Car and Midget competition, Hahn has used his time to test and tune, and in doing so, revealed an issue with the car he'd been running to start the National Tour.
"The time off the tour ended up being a big help because we figured out the car was bound up, even though everything squared and was free. Once we got the other car built after Park Jefferson, I felt like we had the right package again, and getting to run some of the 410 shows this month showed us some different things we can do setup wise."
Going into rounds five and six on the 2020 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports lineup of events, Hahn currently sits fourth in tour standings. A career-best runner-up at the close of the 2019 season, Hahn is determined to clinch his first career National Tour Championship.
"We were close last year, so we know we have what it takes to be a championship-winning team. We just need to put everything together and not make mistakes. That's what hurt us last year, and with the group, we race with, you don't get many chances to make up ground."
