MILLVILLE, New Jersey (May 22, 2011) – – A finish well deserved. After encountering a slew of issues during practice and qualifying yesterday at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP), Chad Hackenbracht and his CGH Motorsports team delivered in Sunday’s ModSpace 150 collectively putting together their first top-10 finish in ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards competition.
The 19-year old’s ninth-place performance in his first ever stock car road racing start comes on the heels of a prior career-best finish of 11th scored at Toledo Speedway last weekend in the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care.
Undoubtedly, the family-owned team leans on the momentum of two strong finishes to propel them into the first intermediate race at Chicagoland Speedway on June 4th.
“This was a total team effort,” said Hackenbracht, a native of New Philadelphia, Ohio. “We overcame a whole bundle of issues and kept our heads together and prevailed. It feels really good. I cannot thank Rob (Torrey, crew chief), Kevin (Reed, director of competition), my mom and dad and the entire CGH Motorsports team for their efforts this weekend. Hard work does definitely pay off.”
Hackenbracht’s first top-10 finish came in the series fifth outing of the season and the 2008 National Asphalt Legends champion 14th career ARCA start. Two ninth place qualifying efforts at Kansas Speedway (2010) and Salem (Ind.) Speedway (2011) are his best time trials efforts to date.
CGH Motorsports is actively seeking additional marketing partners for the full 2011 ARCA Racing Series schedule. Single, multi and full-season placements are available on the team’s No. 58 entries. Interested parties are urged to contact Jordan Dahl at 570.234.5449 or email@example.com.
