SONOMA, Calif. (June 29, 2016)- After making several passes throughout the first half of the Chevy’s FreshMex 200, the most recent round of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West at the famed Sonoma Raceway, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong would suffer a premature end after contact with a competitor sent his car hard in to the Turn Nine barrier.
“It’s a really tough way to end after such a strong run,” stated Wong. “As soon as the race began, it was clear we had the pace to really contend, and we had a very specific, measured gameplan to look after the car throughout the first half. I think we really could have had something for everyone at the end, so it was really frustrating to see things turn like that. I really appreciate what everyone at Ranier Racing with MDM did to help guide us through the weekend, and obviously we really wanted to show well for all of our friends at Northwestern University and IDT.”
Taking place during the same weekend as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at the famed San Francisco bay area venue, the 26-year old came in to the weekend with strong hopes to deliver in front of such a large crowd. Having earned a reputation as being a specialist on road courses, and looking to generate some attention as one of very few Asian Americans represented at the track, all focus was on Saturday’s race.
