Caleb Holman Finishes 21st at Rockingham in Truck Series DebutPress Release
Holman had to beat five go or go homers in qualifying to make the field and he did just that by laying down a lap time of 25.631 that would put him starting 24th on the grid.
“After not making the race at Martinsville a few weeks ago we kind of reevaluated everything. We went down to Charlotte and spent some time at Mike Hillman’s shop with some of his guys and worked on getting the truck ready for this past weekend. My crew chief and I definitely have a better understanding of the trucks now,” said Holman after the race.
Holman eventually went three laps down during the race as the crew made huge adjustments every stop to make the truck more drivable on the worn out track surface.“I feel like we learned how to make quick decisions on which way to go with the adjustments today. We learned what does and what doesn’t work with this truck,” commented Holman.
On the last pit stop with about 20 laps to go, Holman came in and got four tires, gas and the crew threw some major adjustments at the Food Country USA/Wise Snack Foods Chevrolet. When the field went green for the final time, Holman says the tires and adjustments really helped the truck as he got racy within the pack.
“We definitely went the right way with the adjustments on that last stop. The last 20 lap run was the best the truck had been all day long. It just feels good to know that we’re moving forward and learning each time we go to the track,” said Holman.
Next on the schedule for Henderson Motorsports will be Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 18th, where they will again have to make the field on time.
