Inside Line Promotions - BENTON RIDGE, Ohio (May 13, 2020) - Greg Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team are venturing to Florida this weekend for a pair of USCS Series races.
Southern Raceway in Milton is the site of a doubleheader on Friday and Saturday. It will mark Wilson's first race since March 7.
"I think we've been off longer than we were for the offseason," he said. "It's real close. We made some changes over the winter and we were cruising along feeling we were getting better. Then everything came to a halt in March. Now we'll try to refire and keep some of that momentum."
Wilson was rolling prior to the shutdown because of COVID-19. He has earned three podium finishes in his five most recent races and he powered from 14 th to sixth place during his debut at Southern Raceway on Feb. 29. The performance garnered the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.
"I have a little better idea what to expect going there for a second time," he said. "It's a typical Florida track. The surface wasn't bad, but it remained dirty all night long. After being off for basically two months now it will be good to get back into the swing of things."
The trip will take approximately a dozen hours to get from Wilson's home state of Ohio to the oval in Florida. He said he hopes to finalize a race schedule for the coming weeks this weekend.
