Langenstein scores a 2nd & 4th place finishes in return at Concord Speedway!                                 9/15/13

Austin Langenstein and the #7 Cray team returned to the track for a double header weekend at Concord Speedway on Friday night 9/13 and Saturday night 9/14! After a few tough luck races recently, Austin shook his bad luck on what other day than Friday the 13th. Austin qualified in the 3rd position and would work quickly to get up to the 2nd position. Austin and the 3rd place competitor would race hard and at the half way point of the race the 3rd place car got into the 3rd corner a little hot and got into Austin's LR bumper and spun him out. Both Austin and the other driver would be sent to the rear of the field and in the last 12 laps Austin would make some awesome passes and get back up to the 2nd position where he would finish! Austin would also pick up the Dave & Busters Hard Charger award for passing the most cars during the night. Austin said after the race- "This was only my second ever start at Concord and first off the year and to finish 2nd, isn't that bad especially after getting spun. The car was super loose and I was almost spinning every lap, I will make changes for tomorrow!" Austin would make some changes to the #7 car on Saturday morning. Austin would qualify 2nd on Saturday night and would race right on the back bumper of the leader and they would have a great battle with Austin about to pass the leader with 3 laps to go as the yellow flag came out. Austin would get a good restart and was side by side for the 1st position going in to turn 1 when the two would make contact sending Austin into a spin and he would do a 360 and only lose 2 positions putting him in the 4th spot where he would finish. Here's what he had to say-'' I was still to loose for the first few laps after getting going, it was better then last night but still to loose, I didn't want that yellow as I was passing the #16 car, I got a good restart after the green came back out and we were side by side for the lead going into 1 but we made contact and he pinched me down and it spun me out, I'm glad we only lost 2 spots but I'm also disappointed we weren't able to get the W.'' The #7 team will be back racing on Friday night 9/20/13 for another shot at the win.
