Race Report: Collins Finishes 12th at Pinty’s 250
What a night for Josh Collins #56 piloting CBRT’s #87 in the NASCAR Finale The Pinty’s 250 in Kawartha Speedway last night. Collins was poled at 14 of 22 cars. A full day of tuning caused some minor issues, but Collins got comfortable after the first 25 laps after being pushed back to the 19th position. Working hard all night over 250 laps, Collins squeezed back to the leading lap and made a nice solid clean run finishing him at 12 or 22 on the lead lap. After 3 pit stops the crew of #56 and #87 finally had the car running hot.
Great finish for the 2nd time in the big seat and gained a lot of respect from NASCAR and other teams on the track. Car came in with minor damage and Collins and team #56 set the pace for 2016 as they hunt for a full season ride!
