Higgins Has Strong Showing in Kingsport Doubleheader
Colby Higgins started Friday with tremendous speed in practice and it carried over into qualifying and recorded his first pole position since stepping away from dirt. He had a goal going into the race to be conservative and keep the car in one piece for Saturday. He raced a smart race and came home p4.
Saturday morning he started off where he left off Friday night and showed speed in all 3 practices in the top 4 all day. In qualifying he qualified p7 and said the car just seemed to feel slow. As race time approached he had a game plan to ride for the first 50 laps or so and race the last 25 but on lap 10 the car began to miss on on lap 13 the engine let go and ended the night.
This kid has matured so much as a driver over the last few weeks and CDM is honored to have him on board. Colby only has 2 regular season starts left and has plans of stepping up next year so at this time its uncertain if we will try to fix the motor or get started on 2021.
