Rain Stops Dippel, Trinity Oaks Ford at Dillon

Mother Nature is clearly not a race fan. 

Persistent rain and a discouraging forecast for more prompted track officials to postpone the “Carolina 200” at Dillon Motor Speedway Saturday night, spoiling the planned debut of Tyler Dippel and the Trinity Oaks Senior Living Ford. It marks the second consecutive rain-out for the team, after also being unable to compete last Wednesday night in Anderson, SC. 

“We were ready to go,” said Godfather Motorsports crew chief Jim Gallison, Jr. “We had a great day of testing at Hickory Motor Speedway Friday, and Tyler was improving with every lap. For a kid who’s done almost all his racing on dirt, he looked extremely comfortable behind the wheel of an asphalt Super Late Model. He responds well to small chassis adjustments and has a very good feel for what the car is doing. 

“I can’t wait to see what he can do with a little more experience.” 

Dippel also expressed disappointment with the postponement, saying, “Test laps are great, but I’m ready to get out there with other cars and see what I can do. With our next Pro All Stars Series race not until August 3, I was really hoping to get this one in.” 

Next up for the Trinity Oaks Senior Living Ford team is the “PASS 150” on Saturday night, August 3 at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, North Carolina.
