Tyler Laing North Carolina Education Lottery 75 Post-Race ReportPress Release
Laing, an 18-year-old Southwest Ranches, Fla., native, qualified his No. 16 Biscayne Roofing Chevrolet 21st for the 75-lap event with a fastest lap of 26.132 seconds. In an effort to save tires, Laing used a slow, steady passing strategy once the green flag dropped to advance to the front of the field. Just as he was settling in a competitive groove, the first caution came out at Lap 21 and he would restart 19th.
Picking back up with his momentum after the restart, Laing began posting very consistent lap times and made five more passes before the second caution came out on Lap 53. Green flag racing resumed only to be interrupted by a third caution on Lap 61 for debris just as Laing had made his way into the top 10 in ninth.
After a final caution on Lap 71, the race restarted with a green/white flag on Lap 74 and Laing crossed the finish line ninth in his No. 16 Biscayne Roofing Chevrolet, earning his first top-10 finish in the series.
“It feels great to have a top-10 finish on our record,” Laing said. “We’re just three races in and we’re already making great progress. If we keep moving forward with consistent competitive racing, I think we have a good chance at winning some races.”
Laing has a couple of off weeks before he and his No. 16 Coulter Motorsports team heads to Kingsport, Tenn., on May 4 for the fourth event on the 2012 UARA schedule.
