Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 16, 2020) - Greg Wilson is in a testing mode with only one month remaining in the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season.
"The points are pretty much set how they are going to be for us no matter what so it's important we take some swings at improving our racing program," he said.
A couple of swings occurred last weekend during the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway, where Wilson and his new Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road sponsored team struggled with speed early in the night.
The brightest spot came during the final time Wilson touched the track on Saturday night when he hustled from 14th to seventh during the non-qualifier race.
"We didn't produce the results we hoped for, but it was nice to end with a positive," he said. "We also learned throughout the weekend, which is our biggest objective right now as we're trying to find that little bit of speed we need."
Next up will be All Star shows this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Jack Gunn Memorial and Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., for the Dirt Classic. Wilson plans to also race at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday during an unsanctioned race.
"This weekend presents another opportunity to try some things and learn on two different size tracks with Williams Grove being a bigger half-mile oval and Lincoln a 3/8-mile track," he said. "The goal is to find more speed and end each night with more knowledge than we entered."
