Rudolph Impressive at Mansfield-Oswego This Coming Weekend

Last weekend Erick Rudolph and the DeLange Racing team headed west for their inaugural visit to the Buckeye State at Mansfield Motorsports Park in Mansfield, Ohio. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour was running the Whelen 150 as part of a doubleheader program that also included the NASCAR Camping World Series East. It was a prime opportunity for the teenage racer to get some valuable exposure and as usual, “The Kid” was equal to the task at hand.

Erick and the crew had the #45 Original Pizza Logs/PrimeTyme Motorsports/Brigham Concrete Modified out for some early practice by mid-morning and made the most of that valuable period. When it was time for qualifying Rudolph turned a very impressive lap that would place him 15th on the starting grid for the feature. After that the team made some final adjustments during the Camping World feature and prepared for the forthcoming battle. Finally it was time to go racing.

Three in a row has not happened in NEMA since 1993 when Jeff Horn, diving for Bay Hayes, did it at Seekonk (May 29), Star (June 13) and Waterford (June 26). Cabral comes into the race off wins at Seekonk’s Boston Louie and Waterford’s Wings & Wheels.
