SPARTA, KY (June 28, 2013) - The #39 BlankHood.com Chevrolet piloted by Ryan Lynch took the green flag at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 225 from Kentucky Speedway as the sun set on June 27th. The race, filled with new faces and some big names, notably the ones of Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch, was action packed and fast paced, with Ty Dillon eventually out-pacing both NASCAR Cup series regulars to grab the win. Ryan started from the 30th position and steadily worked his way up to the 24th spot by the end of the race.
"Kentucky is definitely a unique track. It's very bumpy and very fast! It took some getting used to, going into the corners and just rolling partially out of the throttle before the air would catch the truck and help it turn. Here, more than the previous places I have run, I felt the sensation of speed. It was a huge learning experience for me - the guys that are NASCAR regulars are very comfortable moving all around the track and letting the air work around the truck, and I got to see it first-hand. At speedways like Kentucky, knowing how the air affects the truck is half the battle, and every time I hit the track, I learn a little bit more about that," said Ryan.
"I have to thank RSS Racing and Rod Sieg for giving me a really solid truck to learn with. Tony (crew chief) and the crew did a great job getting the truck good to go for the race and comfortable for me, and Richard (spotter) did a tremendous job of keeping me out of trouble. Also, thanks to our BlankHood.com partners who help us out. 24th is the best NASCAR finish so far, and with teams like this, I'll just keep getting better."
