Mansfield Motorsports Park Racers Battle Rain in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series
Travis Kvapil and the K&N Filters Team showed patience and perseverance during the Ohio 250 at Mansfield Motorsports Park.

It took seven-and-a-half hours to complete Saturday’s race due to weather. Kvapil started in the front but ended in the back of the field after a near miss on the track and a pit stop. After several rain delays, the No.6 team bounced back to a seventh place finish in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

During Friday’s qualifying session Kvapil qualified fifth with a fast lap time of 16.582 seconds. On Saturday afternoon, he settled into sixth position just before the first caution flew on lap nine. As the field came around for the green flag on lap 14, the rain came down and NASCAR threw the caution followed by a red flag on lap 15 for weather. It was the first of four rain delays on that day.
At the re-start the No.6 K&N Filters F-150 was 20th. Kvapil told the crew his truck had no rear grip and the No.6 was brought to pit row for a wedge adjustment. Kvapil eventually moved his way forward breaking into the top 20 on lap 99. The race was stopped at lap 106 for the final time due to rain and resumed after 7 pm with the No. 6 truck in 14th place.
Kvapil emerged in 7th place as the checkered flag waved over the finish line. “Today was a pretty good day for the K&N Filters Team,” he said. “We started the race pretty loose then a few trucks wrecked right around me so that put us behind early on. We’ve had a good truck for the last for weeks and just haven’t had the finish we deserve.”
Kvapil moves to seventh in the overall Craftsman Series Point Standings with the No. 6 K&N Filters F-150. His next race will be at the Monster Mile in Dover Delaware.
