6/26/09 Nashville, TN. Redline Time Attack at the Nashville Super Speedway.
Saturday’s practice went as expected with both teams gradually getting quicker and quicker as the day went on. The conditions were hot but the skies were clear for the day’s events. Back and forth, AMS and Sierra Sierra traded the fastest laps; each team within mere tenths of a second of each other. At the end of the day, it was the AMS/NOS Energy Drink EVO X piloted by Mark Daddio that had the fastest lap in class and for the day with a 1:02.7 besting the Sierra Sierra car by only two tenths of a second. The stage was set for Sunday.
The AMS/NOS Energy Drink EVO X took the number one position in grid. In the first round, AMS charged around the bank clearly on a mission to lay down a fast lap. As it rounded the final bend, Mark Daddio sailed across the finish with a time of 1:01.296 – breaking the track record for a lap in competition at the Nashville Super Speedway by nearly 2.5 seconds!
