His car did well in the practice session and Gerchman’s strategy was to park it and wait for the qualifying session. There were at least 30 cars trying to make the 22 car starting field for the Sunoco Fuels 75.

The Lake Havasu City resident qualified in third place. “Before our trophy dash, I adjusted the car,” he said. “By lap four of six in the trophy dash, the car was in the lead and I won.”

Gerchman hoped his car would be as successful in the main event as it was in the trophy dash. “Organizers inverted the top eight cars in the main so even though I qualified in third place I had to start at fifth position,” he said. “I found myself in the lead by lap 25 with 50 more laps to go.”

There was one caution during the race. At lap 65 someone ran over a cone and it flew into the middle of the track. On the restart the person in second place tried to make a move and pass Gerchman. “I held my line and drove away from the second place car,” he said. “It’s very important to be patient in this kind of race. My strategy paid off and we were just as successful in the main as we were in the trophy dash.”

Gerchman has used K&N products his entire racing career. He began racing in the Legend Series seven years ago and moved up to the Super Clean Modified Series. “K&N protects my engines from dirt and debris on the track,” he said. “I also get additional filtration and more air which means more power.”

The 21-year-old competes against his father, his uncle and his co-worker in the SuperClean Modified Series. His goal is to have a NASCAR career. Until then Gerchman hopes to continue his winning momentum during the weekend of April 17 and 18 at the Lucas Oil 10 Speedway in Blythe, California.
