Siorek Has Best Results of the Season at Bark River
The goal for Matt Siorek and his #28 Kenda Tire Starmont Manufacturing/Star Tool & Die PRO-Light for the 2017 TORC Series presented by AMSOIL was to show improvement in the team’s performance as the season progressed to the season’s finale in late September. If the team’s results at the “Throw Down in the UP” in Bark River, Michigan are any indication, Siorek Racing is definitely accomplishing that goal as the Northern Indiana crew had by far, its best racing of the season
Matt Siorek was familiar with 1.5-mile Bark River International layout, but that was driving a Sportsman Super Stock Truck. The added horsepower, improved suspension and lighter truck of a PRO-Light truck would take an all new approach to getting around the iconic raceway.
Saturday’s Round 7 would be ten laps in length with a two wide rolling start. Siorek ran a clean and competitive race finishing in sixth place. The competition is definitely close in this year’s PRO-Light field as the Matt best race lap time was only 0.350 seconds off the second place finisher’s best time.
Encouraged by Saturday’s results, Matt and his team went to work fine tuning the chassis set-up for the Sunday afternoon finale.
Round 8 was another solid run for Matt Siorek. At one point late in the race, the #28 Kenda Tire Starmont Manufacturing/Star Tool & Die PRO-Light had made the right moves to race into the third position. Eventually a late charge from veteran Shawn Morris gave Matt Siorek a well-deserved fourth place finish. The rookie driver turned the third quickest lap of the race, just 0.151 seconds off the quickest lap of race set by Morris.
“We had a really solid weekend,” remarked Matt Siorek. “I was really comfortable in the truck this weekend. I’ve always enjoyed racing here and that might have something to do with it, but it really starts with understanding what the truck does and knowing what it needs to handle the track conditions. We still have much more to learn, but the results this weekend tells us we are going in the right direction. Can’t wait to get to Red Bud.”
As mentioned, the next stop of the TORC Series presented by AMSOIL is August 12-13 at Red Bud MX in Buchanan, Michigan.
