Texas Motor Speedway - RattleSnake 400

FT. WORTH, Texas (June 10, 2016) It was a battle against the fierce Texas heat for Ryan Lynch in the #GoKarting/BlankHood.com Chevrolet for the RattleSnake 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. Ryan qualified the 07 with a lap of 30.99 at over 174 mph around the 1.5 mile oval. As the green flag fell, Lynch began his longest NASCAR event to date and quickly experienced some of the toughest conditions the sport has to offer. With little ventilation inside the truck, temperatures quickly rose in the burning hot, stuffy Texas evening weather. Lynch worked to get better control of an ill-handling truck as the race progressed, but found managing the heat an equally difficult task.

"At every stop I was pouring ice cold water down my suit just trying to cool off. The June heat here, even in the evening, is incredibly unforgiving," stated Lynch. Ryan survived the race and brought the truck in without a scratch to a commendable 26th place finish. Though the finish was not his best, it was a personal victory. "I can't thank Bobby Dotter enough for giving me the opportunity to get back in the truck, especially at Texas. That was probably the toughest race I've run, and definitely the longest. My goal was to come out clean at the end and get that track time no matter what the physical demands. It was also great to have #GoKarting and my home kart track, 201 Go-Kart Speedway, on the truck. Being able to bring where I started full circle to NASCAR is a really awesome experience."

The event was the 6th of Lynch's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career, and the first NASCAR event of the 2016.Please check out BlankHood.com for the latest and follow Ryan on Facebook at Ryan Lynch Racing and Twitter at @ryanlynchracing.

2014: Texas Motor Speedway Race Recap

FT. WORTH, Texas (November 2, 2014) - It was a dramatic end under the lights on Halloween at Texas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino 350 with the caution and checkers waving in a green-white- checkered finish. Ryan Lynch brought the IDLifeRacing.com/BlankHood.com Chevrolet to a 22nd place finish, capping off his most successful NASCAR weekend to date.

Lynch went out Friday afternoon in the first round of knockout qualifying and recorded a lap of 30.944 seconds with an average speed of 174.509 mph around the 1.5 mile oval. The lap was just shy of sending him to the next round of qualifying, but good enough to earn him the 26th starting position. Lynch took the green flag under the lights Friday night with hopes of recording his best finish to date in the truck series. Lynch wheeled a tight race truck until lap 23 when the first caution came out. He brought the 07 in for new tires and a track bar adjustment. While battling for position on lap 57, Lynch grazed the wall and, being cautious, brought the truck in under green to bolt on four new tires and pull out the fender. He quickly got back out on the track, but was two laps down. As the night continued the team kept making adjustments to improve the truck's handling and his lap times rivaled trucks in the top 20. The race was red flagged after Darrel Wallace Jr. blew an engine, leaving oil halfway around the track on lap 107. Once the race resumed, Lynch continued to improve on lap times and eventually brought the 07 IDLifeRacing.com/BlankHood.com Chevy home in the 22nd position, the best of his career.
