Deborah Renshaw made her second
start behind the wheel of the No. 112 AskPatty.com Chevrolet on Friday night
at Nashville, Tennessee's Music City Motorplex since making her return to
DryGDSI.com NASCAR Late Models on June 30th.
Renshaw and her Hooked Up Motorsports team qualified third and picked up their second top-five finish in a row at the .596-mile short track in a field of 15 cars.
"Friday night was decent," said
Renshaw following the race. "We started third and finished fourth. We
stayed with the leaders almost all night. We ran third for more than
half the race and then Steadman Marlin ended up passing us. We stayed
right on Steadman's bumper until the last 10 laps or so.
Then, the car got worse as the race continued. We ended up finishing fourth, making for a frustrating night." Despite her frustration, the Bowling Green, Kentucky-native was thankful for all the help from her team. "All in all I was proud of the guys on the team for hanging in there with me. They were very encouraging even though they knew from the start of the race that we had an ill-handling car."
Renshaw's fought a tight condition throughout the race which kept her from
making a charge to the front in the No. 112 AskPatty.com Chevrolet. "Our
car was very tight in the center making it extremely loose off," she
explained. "We tested the week before and got the car better from the first
race but we believe we ended up with a bad set of tires on Friday night."
Even though Renshaw had to battle her car as well as the field, she still
"All in all it was a fun night."
Renshaw will have another opportunity to have some fun on Sunday, July 22nd as the DryGDSI.com NASCAR Late Models return to the track for a 75-lap shootout. The DryGDSI.com NASCAR Late Models will run before the NASCAR Busch East Series race.

"We just wish we were able to bring home the victory for AskPatty.com. I think it's only a matter of time before we race our way into Victory Lane but I just wish it would have happened this weekend." Renshaw still has aspirations of returning to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series or NASCAR Busch Series.
