TALLADEGA, A.L. (May 7, 2012) – Joey Coulter and the No. 61 Rip It Energy Fuel, Darrell Gwynn Foundation Chevrolet team finished a disappointing 40th at Talladega Superspeedway, after being collected in the “big one” Friday afternoon in the International Motorsports Hall of Fame 250.
Forced to forgo all of Thursday’s planned activities due to rain and inclement weather, ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards officials set the field on 2011 owner’s points and created a sole practice session early Friday morning. Coulter spent the entire 50-minute session making two extended drafting runs with teammate No. 16 Matt Lofton. At session’s end, Coulter would end eighth with a fast time of 52.271 seconds at 183.199 MPH.
Forced behind the eight-ball by starting 31st and losing teammate and drafting partner Lofton, Coulter set his sights on picking his way through the field with his No. 61 Rip It Energy Fuel Chevrolet as the green flag waved Friday afternoon.
While making tremendous progress towards the front, finding himself 16th in less than 10-laps, the dreaded “big one” wreck started in front of Coulter, blocking the entire track and consuming the 21-year-old driver. The damage sustained was to severe to make a return trip on-track, forcing Coulter to finish with a DNF (did not finish) in 40th place in the No. 61 Rip It Energy Fuel Chevrolet Impala SS.
Next up for Coulter and the No. 61 Rip It Energy Fuel Coulter Motorsports team in ARCA Racing Series competition is the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care at Toledo Speedway on Sunday, May 20.
