+14 move in the Main sets the stage for a great start to 2018
Skylar turns 19 and gets Hard Charger Award on Night One
RA. MESQUITE, Texas (March 16, 2018). Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Skylar Gee turns 19 today and puts in one of his most impressive runs during Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series on opening night. Gee struggled slightly in his heat race with a 6th pace finish, which set him in the B Feature. Starting 8th in the Heat and moving up two places helped with valuable passing points to place high in the B main.
Skylar started in the fourth position in the B Main and moved himself up to finish second to transfer into the 25 lap main event.
Gee wanted to do some good on his birthday night, with his Mom and Dad and some supporters all helping him in this first race of the 2018 season. He did not disappoint. Gee started the feature back on the outside of the third last row of the 22 car field, in the 18th position. After 25 hard-charging laps, Skylar moved up 14 positions to finish just off the podium in an impressive 4th spot.
Skylar Gee captures the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night of the night award for his efforts with a +14 position move up in the Main. Gee also puts himself 4th in points for the 2018 Championship.
