Broken Wire Spoils Sullivan's Debut At Southern National

A broken ignition wire spoiled the competitive debut of the No. 1 Trinity Oaks Senior Living Community Ford and driver Glenn Sullivan Saturday night at Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, NC. 

After a full day of practice and qualifying at the showplace, 4/10-mile speedplant, Sullivan and the Trinity Oaks team took part in a special fan oriented Pit Party on the track’s front straightaway, signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. 

Unfortunately, when the traditional “Gentlemen, start your engines” command was given for the main event, the Trinity Oaks Ford did not fire, the victim of an errant ignition wire.
“I’ve never had this happen in more than 40 years in the sport,” said Godfather Motorsports crew chief Jim Gallison, Jr. “Apparently, when Glenn connected his helmet to the ventilation hose while strapping in for the feature, it pulled a wire loose from the master ignition switch. The car was dead in the water, and by the time we were able to diagnose the problem, the race had already started without us. 

“Calling it `frustrating’ would be an understatement.” 

Next up for the Trinity Oaks Ford team will be a 150-lap Pro All Stars Series event on Saturday night, August 15 at the legendary South Boston Speedway in South Boston, VA.
