12th-place finish in Alabama State Championship with Crate Racin' USA
Taking part in the Alabama State Championship festivities, Mario Gresham competed in both the Crate Racin' USA and 602 Late Model divisions at East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Ala.) over the weekend.
During Saturday's qualifying and heat races, Mario qualified 18th-quickest in his 602 Late Model group which relegated him to a B-Main on Sunday. Following the eighth-fastest lap in his CRUSA qualifying group, Gresham charged forward in his heat race to nab the final A-Main transfer spot in fourth.
With main events slated for Sunday afternoon, Gresham was unable to make the starting grid for the 602 feature after getting caught in an incident in his B-Main. For the $10,000 finale, Mario was once again caught in an accident but was able to limp his way to a 12th-place finish in the 50-lap feature.
