The #76 Lorz Motorsports Ford is off to a successful start to their 2012 season. Caruth capped off his ARCA/CRA Super Series season opener with a 10th place finish. Caruth said, “First, I’d like to thank Brella Sports Group, Caruth Construction, & Carroll Construction Supply for sponsoring my season with Lorz Motorsports.”
Caruth continued to say, “We did not qualify where we expected with a 20th starting position. We persevered through the field and ended with a 10th place finish. The car was very up and down, but the team helped out a lot. We survived through all the wrecks and ran a smart race. Overall, it was a good race day. I was pleased with the field; it added top quality for a competitive race.”
The field of 28 cars had everyone on their game after the extra day allotted due to a rain re-reschedule. Teams were allowed an open practice session on Friday, April 13. The true un-lucky day proved to be Saturday the 14th when teams were awoken to a constant stream of rain. The extra weekend day gave plenty of leeway for a Sunday re-schedule.
Out of a 28 car starting field, a total of 14 cars finished the race. A large portion was due to the number of wrecks that took place during the Anderson 125 presented by Great Deals Magazine; with each driver getting a taste of the close calls. Caruth said, “There were a number of close calls for the #76 Lorz Motorsports Ford. Thanks to my spotter, Jesse Dickerson, I was able to avoid all the wrecks to persevere towards the end.” Caruth continued to say, “The ARCA/CRA Officials were great to work with and want to thank all the dedicated fans that came out for the re-scheduled Sunday race.” The Anderson 125 had a total of 9 cautions and 2 red flags.
Caruth and the Lorz Motorsports team created a strong building block for their 2012 ARCA/CRA season. Caruth said, “Anderson Speedway is a very unique track and I do not have any previous track to truly compare to it. We survived the race throughout all the wrecks, and clicked off laps till the end. Patience is the main lesson that I have learned and will carry through my season. “
The first race of the schedule sets the tone for the entire season. Caruth strongly stepped up to the plate with his top 10 finish. His hat is in the ring for the ARCA/CRA Super Series Championship, and he’s ready for the fight. Come one, come all as Caruth and the drivers of the Midwest battle out the season.
