Archer 10th and Andretti 8th on TA2 Grid

Lexington, OH – A hot and humid day kicked off today’s track activities bringing a bit of an up and down day for the Archer Brothers and ECC Motorsports team drivers Tommy Archer and Adam Andretti. Qualifying began earlier this morning with many of the top competitors, including Archer and Andretti, finding themselves outside of the top 5 with Adam qualifying 8th and Tommy in 14th. Archer, not satisfied with his 14th starting position took advantage of the '2nd Chance to Qualify' and improved his time by almost 1 second and will start tomorrow’s race in the 10th position.

An afternoon practice session allowed the Archer Brothers and ECC Motorsports teams to continue to make the necessary changes and refine the setup based on the track conditions. Both Andretti and Archer were fast – posting times in the top 6 for the session and creating the confidence that the changes were headed in the right direction in preparation for tomorrow’s race.  “We knew there were some things that we had to fix. The Archer Brothers crew deserves a lot of credit for their hard work, focus and execution to make the necessary changes after our first qualifying session,” says Archer. “Although we knew that rain was coming later in the day around the time for 2nd chance qualifying – we knew we had to take the risk to improve our starting position and I’m glad we did.”

Tomorrow’s race day schedule has the 25 TA2 car field back on the track tomorrow with the green flag waving at 12:45 pm EST.
