  • Date:  July 15, 2023
  • Event:  Dean’s Auto Plaza Night
  • Track:  Lincoln Speedway
  • City, State:   Abbottstown, PA
  • Quick Stats:  33 cars, Heat 4th [8], A-main 13th [16]


Cappetta and the Team Had the Car on Rails

Ashley Cappetta and the Gettysburg Trading Post, Mike’s Towing and Recovery, Yesteryear Antique Center, Stoner’s Auction, O’Brien’s Fuel and Service, Iron Horse Trains, Republican Club of Hanover No. 89 were back in action on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway for Dean’s Auto Plaza Night.

After another high pill draw to start off the night, Cappetta lined up eighth for her heat race. Just as Ashley had driven her way into a transfer spot, she got caught up in an incident in turns 3 and 4, sending her back to the rear, “The car was on absolute rails before the contact in the heat. The car did not feel as good as it did before the spin out.” Cappetta rejoined the heat race with some nose wing damage which threw the car off a little bit. Ashley was still able to get back into a qualifying spot putting her in the feature, “If we would have stayed green third could have been possible.”

Another Solid Feature Run for Cappetta

Cappetta lined up 16th for the start of the 20-lap feature was running 14th on lap 4, “We moved forward, but not as far forward as I wanted to.” With four laps to go, Ashley made the pass for 13th, which is where she would finish, “I had a little bit of wheel spin coming off of turn 4. The car felt great, but I just couldn’t get past the wheel spin, it was just enough to throw me off.” Ashley’s 13th place finish matched her season best finish that came at BAPS on May 27th.

Cappetta and Team Making Gains

Everything went well in the feature for Cappetta on Saturday despite two set-backs to start off the night with a high pill draw and getting caught up in an incident in the heat race, “We are making gains every week and looking forward to comparing notes to last week to see what we can put together for the rest of the season.” Cappetta has a positive outlook for the second half of the season, “We are slowly getting there, we just need a good pill draw to seal the deal.”
