Inside Line Promotions – COLUMBUS, Neb. (May 2, 2017) – Zach Blurton finally got a good pill draw and he used it to score his first win of 2017, taking the Sprint Series of Nebraska victory last Thursday at U.S. 30 Speedway.

“I’m so relieved we got our first win,” he said. “Most of it came down to a good pill draw. We had the son of the guy (Jason Martin) who would finish second in the feature draw the pill and he got the No. 35 for the heat. The way our drawing has been going this year, that is by far the lowest number we’ve drawn and the best we’ve started in a heat race. We started third and finished third in the heat race because we missed the setup a little bit. Luckily, that locked us into the redraw.”

Blurton drew the No. 2 pill for the feature, putting him to the outside of the front row.

“The last time we raced at U.S. 30 we ran second so we had a basic idea of the setup,” he said. “We brought a new kid to help us. Kade Hagans has a ton of knowledge. He has helped us here and there, but we have brought him on for the season and I’m excited.”

On the start of the feature Blurton dropped to third, but a caution put him back to second. On the restart he blasted to the top and took the lead.

“A few laps later I figured the track was going to be taking rubber pretty soon so I kept peeking off of turn two to see if anyone was coming under me,” he said. “One time I saw somebody so I figured I’d better get to the bottom. I got down to the bottom and just held on there. We had a restart with about three laps to go and that actually helped me because the car was getting tight. The yellow cooled my tires off a little bit and I just took it home from there.”

The win was not only a shot in the arm for the team’s confidence, but helped put Blurton back in the hunt for the SSN and the RaceSaver IMCA National Championship titles. He is now tied for eighth in the SSN championship standings.

“We didn’t get off to a very good start, but we’re turning it around now,” he said. “We’re looking forward to getting back to Eagle Raceway next weekend to try for a win there. We were fast there the last time we went. Just mistakes by the driver cost us. The last weekly show there we finished sixth.”

Blurton is scheduled to tackle the high-banked Eagle Raceway this Saturday.
