Andy Bachetti Dominates at Accord Speedway on Friday Night; Bad Luck Continues at Lebanon Valley Speedway  

By Craig Revelle - Finish Line Web Design - July 24, 2014 - The Bachetti Motorsports team was back in action again last week with the usual visits to Accord Speedway and Lebanon Valley Speedway on the schedule as well as a visit to I-88 Speedway on Wednesday night for the next round of Brett Deyo’s Super Series. 

The weekend started off at Accord Speedway on Friday night and it was a perfect night for Andy Bachetti and his team.  They were the fastest car on the track in the opening practice session, and they continued to be the fastest car all night winning their qualifying heat race.  In the main event, Andy started from the fourth position and took the lead just before 10 laps had been completed.  As the laps counted down, Andy was able to pull ahead by a full straightaway.  

“The car was pretty much perfect tonight”, says Bachetti.  “We tried a couple different things with our setup tonight and it worked great”.

The team hoped their Friday night success would carry over into Saturday night as they returned to Lebanon Valley Speedway.  Bachetti brought home the win in the opening qualifier, starting from sixth and blasting to the front of the pack before lap five.  In the main event, he started from 11th and was up to ninth by lap eight when the crankshaft bolt broke in half causing the pulley on the front of the motor to come loose and snap the oil pump belt.  They were done for the night as the bad luck continued at Lebanon Valley.

“It was really unfortunate as the car was handling really good up to that point”, says Bachetti afterwards.  “We will pull the motor out this week and check for any internal damages, but hopefully it will be ok”.

The team also planned to hit I-88 Speedway on Wednesday night for the next round of the Brett Deyo Super Series.  Rain forced track crews to postpone the event until tonight (July 24).  We will have coverage of the event in next week’s report.
