Timmy Solomito of Islip, NY has top 10 finishes in 46% of his 30 starts. The sophomore driver is seventh in NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour points with one top five and six top tens. He has 4 finishes outside the top 10 in his first season with Flamingo Motorsports. Since the DNF at Monadnock, Solomito had top tens at Stafford and Thompson.
“We’re not really setting the world on fire yet, but just still kind of learning each other, and learning the tracks pretty much,” Solomito said. “It’s been a long road, but little by little I feel like we’re getting there, and we’re getting the cars a little better each time, and I’m getting a little better each time with my experience level. So there’s a good 15-20 cars that can win on any given race, and I feel like we’ve been in that stretch. We just gotta kind of tie it all together.”
“Our points aren’t too bad for considering we had a few pretty bad races. We had Monadnock we got knocked out of. We struggled the first race at Thompson with some issues with tires, and whatnot, and then at Waterford we ended up getting taken out there with a lapped car. But (if) we didn’t have those three bad finishes, I think we’d be in the top five right now in points, but it’s all a part of racing … you move on and go to the next race. We try and run as strong as possible.”
