3rd generation driver, 15 year old Andrew Koens, earned a very respectable 7th place finish out of 13 cars in his first career modified division start! Had it not been for a last lap spin in front of Andrew, he would have secured 5th or 6th place.
The Koens Racing Team (KRT) spent their Friday at the track working on the racecar late into the night with clutch issues and a ignition wiring problem found during practice. The team worked hard in order to make the race the following day!
In the 35 lap main event at the Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon that featured many wrecks, spins and fierce racing, Andrew Koens navigated his #5 Loggers Taphouse Chevy through obstacles during the race, keeping his car clean while garnering much needed racing experience along the way. With his fastest lap of 16.3 during the race, Koens showed the speed needed to compete up front soon.
Watch for the in-car video to be published soon (this week) on the KRT youtube channel.
KRT would like to thank the following partners with this #5 modified car; Kamper Korner RV Center, Loggers Tap House, Blue Ox Towing Products, Mountain Dew KickStart,Thetford & Cagle Communications!
