Inside Line Promotions – CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (June 6, 2022) – Greg Wilson garnered a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Hard Charger Award last Friday at Attica Raceway Park.
Wilson guided the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports No. 97 from 23rd to 11th in the A Main at the dirt oval in Attica, Ohio.
The event was a work in progress for Wilson, who qualified 21st quickest before an eighth-place outing in a heat race relegated him toward the middle of the B Main. He rallied from 10th to third in the consolation race to transfer into the back of the main event. Wilson capped the night by gaining a dozen positions in the A Main to record his second Hard Charger Award of the season during All Stars competition.
“We were trying to get some depth to our program so we had to run some stuff a little different,” he said. “We were better the other way early in the night so we have to figure that out. We started off not very good and we were deep in the B Main. I really didn’t think we had a shot to make it. Andy (Potter) kept changing the car around and we got really good. That carried over to the feature. If we could clean up the early part of the night like we were early in the season I think we’ll contend for a lot of wins.”
The weekend concluded on Saturday at Atomic Speedway, which hosted the George Fisher Memorial Freedom 40. Wilson timed in 26th quickest and placed ninth in a heat race before hustling from 14th to fifth in the B Main, ending one spot shy of transferring into the main event.
“We passed a lot of cars, but I don’t feel we were as good as we were early in the year,” he said. “Andy made some changes before the races started. I gave up a tenth or two in qualifying and we were in a tough heat race. That’s not an excuse. We need to be better early in the night. It was hard to make up any positions in the heat race. Andy made more changes for the B Main and we ripped through there pretty good. It was frustrating that we missed it, but I feel our car was a lot better.”
Ohio Sprint Speedweek, which showcases nine All Star races in nine days, begins this Friday at Attica Raceway Park.
“Honestly, when we were kids that was our family vacation,” Wilson said. “I’ve always thought it was awesome. It’s a little stressful and I usually get wound up because I know the preparation it takes to be competitive all week. I’m really pumped because we get our other engine back which we seem to be the most competitive with.”
