Curtis captured the second spot in his heat event. Before the feature, the crew made adjustments on the chassis of its new 2007 Troyer Chassis HRE powered car with K&N products.

Curtis drew seventh position in the 25-lap feature event. By lap eight, he moved up to sixth place and then to third position by lap 15. The remainder of the event was caution free and the Greenville, Pennsylvania racer finished in third place at his home track.

Curtis and his crew spent the past several weeks completing work on its second race vehicle with a 2007 Troyer Chassis that was purchased in the spring. “We call the new car Brutus,” said Curtis. “It's a Big Bore 565 cubic inch motor. I still can’t believe how fast it goes and how hard it pulls down the straightaway..”

Curtis said it was not the victory they hoped for but it was a very successful maiden voyage for the newest member of the race team’s stable. “We’re pleased with the results,” said Curtis. “Jeff and Carlon Hine built a terrific motor and I’m certain that with a few minor chassis adjustments this car will be in Victory Lane again very soon.”

Curtis has raced late modified cars since 1996 and has used K&N products since 1986. “I’m the type of person that believes if something works, why change,” said Curtis. “K&N gives me performance gains, protects my engines and is always dependable on and off the track. I use K&N on every vehicle I own.”

The Curtis Race Team will continue its quest to regain the Modified Division points lead and return to Sharon Speedway this weekend. They are only seven points away from first place.
