He expects to be back in his car after Saturday, with the anticipation of an engine repair being completed and the engine returned to him.John will have one week before the next series race, at Punta Gorda’s 4-17 Southern Speedway on Saturday, February 17, the last of the track’s four cold-weather season sprint car races.
“We switched to a new motor builder and the motor expired at Punta Gorda.
I was trying to work out an engine for the race but Mac Steele has stepped up and I’ll be driving the No.
As of right now, it’s just for New Smyrna.” He does want to be back with his own car for next week’s race in Punta Gorda, but it is not certain that he will be.
“It’s still up in the air who I’ll drive for or if I’ll drive,” he said, but that scenario was only if his engine was not ready to put back in his own car.
2 Beast for Mac Steele this weekend,” John told me on Friday.
