First-year Drive for Diversity member Lindsey
King was back on track in late model action at the
Toyota Speedway at Irwindale on Saturday night.
King finished eighth in the Auto Club Late Model
main event after winning the Late Model Trophy
"We had a pretty good weekend," said King. "We
were stronger in the main than our finished showed,
but I'm happy that we could run up front in the
trophy dash. I have to thank my team at High Point
Racing and the Drive for Diversity program for all
of their support this season!"
King, a 19-year-old Cherry Valley, Calif.
native, qualified sixth of 22 cars in the No. 59
High Point Racing Chevrolet and started on the pole
for the trophy dash. She led every lap on her way
to her first victory of the season.
In the main, King started six and lost a few
positions on the start. She quickly found her
rhythm and fell in behind two cars that were
battling fiercely for position. King avoided
disaster when the two cars wrecked directly in
front of her. Her car did sustain some damage, but
she was able to hold on for the eighth-place
King is sixth in the Auto Club Late Model point
standings with two top-fives and seven top-10s in
10 starts this season.
