Sean Corr moved up over a dozen spots during the course of the 200 mile ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season opener on Saturday Feb 16th to earn a 5th place finish. In three laps of practice before the Florida weather moved in, Corr had little time to assess the handling of his car prior to qualifying. Qualifying in the same car he won the pole with last year, Sean was able to shave off three tenths of a second to earn the 18th starting position for the race. After a gas and go pitstop, Corr entered the top 10. Pairing up with Frank Kimmel, he continued his advance through the field.
“I am so glad to be able to have put the #82 Warriors In The Workplace/LBS South Ford Fusion in the top 5 here in Daytona. Ben Leslie and the Empire Racing crew worked hard and put together a really good car. RoushYates Engines and Nick Ramey gave us the power we needed to get to the front after starting 18th. We had several new marketing partners join us this week, CroftgateUSA and RageTank, and I am happy that we were able to give them a good experience here at Daytona. I also want to thank Frank Kimmel for working with us as our drafting partner today ”stated Corr after the race.
“Roush Yates worked hard on their engine package over the winter and we were looking to put them up front. We ended up 5th and the top finishing Ford in the field. We were lucky to just miss out on the big one. Crew chief Ben Leslie and our spotter, Timmy McKichan, did a great job calling the race, and we are so proud of Sean’s performance at Daytona ” explained Empire Team Manager, John Bellesfield.
Sean will return to Daytona next week as he takes to the high banks of Daytona again in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Feb 22nd. The Friday night race will be televised live on SPEED and broadcast on MRN Radio and Sirius XM Channel 90 starting at 7:30 pm.
