Last Saturday Cody Pruitt and the HPS Mechanical/Lenox Homes team competed in the SRL race at Stockton Speedway. Emotions ran high since this was the final race night for the popular 1/4 mile track. Because of all the celebrations the turnout of fans and teams was huge. Pruitt used the opportunity to show he can compete with the best. After a mechanical problem during practice the team rushed to get the car ready for qualifying and Pruitt was able to qualify 11. Cody raced well and was running 4th when an accident sent him spinning. He was able to recover but was at the back of the lead lap with only a few short laps left. Pruitt raced hard and was gaining on the leaders but did not have enough laps to catch them and finished in a respectable 9th. With the season coming to a close, Pruitt and the whole No. 1 team are fighting hard to finish well in every race and move up in the points standings.
This upcoming weekend the team will be racing at Altamont Raceway Park with the Southwest Series car. Pruitt has experience at the new track from earlier this year and looks forward to the competitive track. He is looking to qualify well and finish with another top ten.
