(6-25-13) - Cale and the #47 TAIT Stages on AXSTV team had a
solid weekend at Langley Speedway for the "Visit Hamapton
175." Cale's team gave him a great car as he was up front in
both of the practice sessions on Saturday afternoon. In the
first session he was 2nd quick and then in the last
session he was the fastest overall between both practices.
Just as qualifying was set to begin a rain shower quickly
covered the track. The qualifying session was delayed for a
while and then after a few hours of track drying the drivers were
set to qualify when another shower hit the track again.
Afterwards, the track officials finally made the call that
qualifying would be cancelled and the cars would line up based on
points for the year.
Cale and the team were a bit disappointed as they thought there
was a good chance they would win the pole-qualifying award.
Cale ended up starting in the 13th position, which was a tough
place to start on the .4-mile track. After juts a few laps
Cale had worked his way up to the 9th position where he
settled in for several laps.
After several cautions late in the race Cale found himself in
the 4th position with a moderately damaged
racecar. Cale and the team decided the damage wasn't bad
enough to warrant a trip to pit road. Cale battled with
fellow K&N competitor Jesse Little for 3rd place in
the closing laps. Cale made several attempts to pass on the
outside, but Little held his ground and Cale brought the #47 TAIT
Stages on AXSTV Toyota home in 4th place.
The next race will be at Columbus Motor Speedway on Saturday
July 13th. Cale is the defending race winner from
this event last year in 2012.
