Ross Kenseth Mentally Prepared for New World Crown Format
ASA Midwest Tour Regular Set to Take Trophy Home This Year
Midwest racer Ross Kenseth didn't fair too well the last time he raced at Gresham Motorsports Park (GA). In the CRA Super Late Model event at the track in September, the young racer finished 19th. On Sunday, November 13th, he will attempt to better his finishing position by going for the crown in the 28th-Annual Rheem World Crown event.
"I am really excited for it," said Kenseth. "We were down there a couple weeks ago.
The car wasn't the greatest, but it gave us a pretty good idea what to do to it for the World Crown race."
The new format this year will keep drivers on their toes throughout the entire 300 laps of the race. Kenseth has already mentally adjusted to the change, hoping his car will be able to do the same on Sunday.
"Last year was more long runs," explained Kenseth. "The guy with the better car after 75 laps was the car to beat. This year it is going to be different with the last part 25 laps. We had a strong run last year, so hopefully we can go there and get the win."
