Mark Dobmeier – Two Weeks of Momentum Lead to River Cities Opener!

(Bill W) April 26, 2016 – Mark Dobmeier and the Jimco Motorsports #13 team have been building momentum in their first two outings at the Knoxville Raceway. The Grand Forks, North Dakota driver nailed down a top ten finish last Saturday night at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World”. This weekend will find the Polaris sponsored team at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks for the opener Friday, with a possible return to Knoxville on Saturday planned as well.

Mark spun to avoid an incident in the feature at Knoxville’s opener on April 16. “We’ve spent the first two weeks at Knoxville, and we’ve got some momentum going,” he says. “The first night we struggled quite a bit. We had to go to the back and got back up to 16th.”

He would check in last Saturday night with a decent qualifying lap and a heat race win. “We didn’t have what we needed that first week, and we’ve been making adjustments,” says Mark. “We’ve been working hard, and we’re headed in the right direction. The car felt really good in the heat race.”

Mark would start outside row seven in the feature. He would climb to tenth before the yellow flag showed with eight laps to go. “I felt like we had a racy car until the caution came out,” he says. “After that, we didn’t have much. I think the driver was a little too hard on the tire the first half of the race. We burnt up the tire a little bit.”

Usually, he is best late in the radce. “As the race goes on, we tend to improve,” says Mark. “Unfortunately, after the yellow on Saturday we just couldn’t improve from where we were in tenth.”

The all-time leading feature winner at River Cities is ready for the opener there. “I think we’re good weather-wise for Friday,” says Mark. “It’s not going to be super-warm, but people are ready to go racing. They had a test and tune last week. It was pretty cool weather and they had a ton of cars and fans for that, so I think they’ll be ready to go.”
