Ended his weekend with a ninth place finish

Skylar Gee Ends Grizzly Nationals With Top 10 Finish

Starting the weekend off with a 12th place showing, Gee found himself struggling to keep pace despite starting outside the front row. Starting to the outside of the third row on Saturday night, Gee again slipped backwards but was able to keep the car inside the top-ten.

“We were really good early on both nights, but honestly it was a really disappointing weekend for us. We had a lot of success there last year and figured we’d be better, but we just couldn’t get it working the features,” commented Gee. “I just made some mistakes that cost us.”

Taking the week to go over the Carlan Services No. 99, Gee got some assistance from BDS Motorsports owner, Bryan Sundby. Taking in what the veteran car owner had to say, Gee was very appreciative of the tips.

Moving east to Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D. for the Rushmore Rumble on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15, Gee hopes to get his momentum rolling again at the big half-mile. One year ago, Skylar placed eighth in the preliminary A-Feature.

“We were fast here last year. We’d only seen it one time, but showed some good speed. We did a lot of work on our program this week so we’re hoping to get some top finishes going into Knoxville. ”

Skylar would again like to thank Strong’s Crane Services in Billings, Mont. and the Liebig family in Rapid City, S.D. for their continue support of the No. 99 team

Lucas Oil ASCS At Brownfield Classic

Skylar Gee Posts Career Best Finish

LEDUC, Alb. (July 6, 2017) Hard work and patience is starting to pay off for Skylar Gee, as the Brodix Rookie of the Year contender posted a career best fifth place finish with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network to open up the Brownfield Classic at Grays Harbor Raceway.

Starting off the night with a Heat Race win to lock into Friday’s redraw, Skylar advanced to finish fifth after starting eight in the 25 lap preliminary A-Feature.

“Getting a top five was awesome. It would have been nice to get fourth and get locked in, but I kind of gave up the spot to [Roger] Crockett when I slid off the bottom, but it happens,” said Skylar of the fifth place finish. “It was really good though being in Washington with a lot of our sponsors there and everyone around.”

Drawing the second row of the Heat Race on Saturday night, things didn’t go the way Skylar had planned; putting the Carlan Services/Shark Racing Engines No. 99 starting sixth in the first B-Feature.

“We struggled early for some reason. We really hadn’t changed much from Friday, but after that, it was clear we needed to do something so we made a bunch of changes for the B-Main and it was a lot better.”

Moving up three spots to advance to the A-Feature, Skylar was able to charge from 21st to 10th before all was said and done.

“We made more changes before the A-Main, and it worked in our favor where we were really able to move forward,” said Gee. “Overall, the weekend was great. I really did learn a lot starting that far back on getting through traffic and staying on the lead lap when you do have to start that far back.”

Back to the scene of his 2016 Brodix ASCS Frontier Region Championship, Skylar will take on the 2nd annual Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. on Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8.

“I love racing at Belgrade. “We’ve had a lot of success there. We were pretty fast last year, just didn’t have the right engine program, but this year we’ve got Shark Racing Engines so I’m excited to see what we can do.”

CP Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night

Top 10 Highlights Dirt Cup for Skylar Gee

LEDUC, Alb. (June 30, 2017) Making the call for the A-Feature all three nights of the 46th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway, Canada’s Skylar Gee posted a best finish of ninth during Friday’s preliminary A-Feature.

Along with the top-ten finish, Skylar was also the night’s CP Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night after winning the B-Main to make the show. With a combined finish of 13th and ninth during preliminary completion, Skylar was able to lock his Carlan Services No. 99 into Saturday’s $15,000 to win feature event.

“We were good Thursday and Friday. Getting locked in was a big relief for sure,” commented Skylar.

Starting 14th in Saturday’s feature event, Gee struggled to move forward during the feature, but eventually did find his groove to salvage a 15th place finish.

“We thought the track was going to be a little tackier, and just missed the setup. The car was okay, it just took too long to find a groove that worked, but once we did, we were able to get a couple spots back. Overall, not a bad weekend. Just looking forward to Grays Harbor now.”

Skylar will be in action on Friday, June 30 and July 1 at Grays Harbor Raceway for the Fred Brownfield Classic with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.
