Blake Hahn Ends Short Track Nationals Earlier Than Expected


Inside Line Promotions – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 29, 2013) – Blake Hahn’s Short Track Nationals experience started off on a high note before it was doomed in the draw.

Hahn charged from seventh to third place during his heat race last Wednesday in the inaugural Short Track Nationals Open at I-30 Speedway. However, his night ended early in the feature when he jumped the cushion and nearly flipped exiting turn two.

“That first Wednesday night we had a good car,” he said. “On the second lap I got into the cushion and the front end hopped over. I got over the edge of the track and the front end dug into the ground and I kinda did a cartwheel. It bent a couple of radius rods and got the left front shock.”

After starting 10th, Hahn ended with a 23rd-place result. The momentum continued to dissipate on Thursday during his preliminary night at the 26th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals Presented by Hoosier Tires.

“We drew 125 and started at the back of the heat race,” he said. “It was narrow and not a lot of passing. The car was good. There just wasn’t a whole lot of passing and in every race there were a lot of good guys.”

Hahn advanced from seventh to sixth place in his heat race, which started him on the pole of a qualifier. He placed second, which lined him up fourth in a B Main that transferred only the top-two finishers to the main event.

“I had (Tim) Shaffer, (Brad) Loyet and (Jason) Sides on the front two rows,” he said. “I didn’t have the best car. I was a little loose in spots.”

Hahn finished where he started to miss a transfer by only two positions. When he returned to the bullring for Saturday’s $15,000-to-win finale, he was set to line up eighth in a C Main.

“We had a rain delay for a while,” he said. “We were the second race out and it was real narrow. Since it had just got done raining the track was pretty rough and tacky.”

Hahn placed 10th in the C Main, which ended his Short Track Nationals.

“We learned a lot,” he said. “We probably should have stuck to our base setup that we’ve had all year.”

Hahn is scheduled to make his debut at El Paso Speedway Park in El Paso, Texas, this Friday and at Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, N.M., on Saturday with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.
