BALOG BATTLES, LOOKS FOR MOMENTUM AT THE 54th ANNUAL TUSCARORA 50 AT PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY
Hartland, Wisconsin (September 8th, 2021) – After struggling at Grandview Speedway (8/26) and Lincoln Speedway (8/28), Bill Balog and the B Squared Motorsports team worked hard to build a spare car in time to close out the month of August at BAPS Motor Speedway (8/29/21). The car, repaired after a 2018 crash at Knoxville by Midland Performance, rewarded the teams hard work with a heat race win and a top 10 All Star Circuit of Champions feature event finish for the Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B.
“I have to thank Jason Sosnoski, Matt McKay, Joe Taylor and Matt Miller for busting their butts to get this thing ready to race. We had to run the fuel system, gauges and get the motor in, it was a big effort.” said the North Pole Nightmare, driver of the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Wisecup Siding, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Lein Acres sprint car.
Despite the teams’ efforts, the momentum did not continue into the doubleheader weekend at Attica Speedway September 3rd and 4th in the Buckeye State. Battling a strong FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions field, chasing demons with their hauler, and relying on their back up car the team struggled both nights at Attica Speedway, capturing a weekend’s best 18th place finish in the September 3rd feature event.
“Racing will beat you up, we’re getting beat up right now,” said Balog. “After Friday we needed to make some changes, we were looking for a spark on Saturday and the car didn’t respond to the changes we made. We’re looking forward to the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal this weekend,” said the 10X IRA Sprint Car Champion.
