Andy Bachetti Continues to Fight Bad Luck After Late Race Incident at Accord Speedway; Top Five Finish at Lebanon Valley

By Craig Revelle - Finish Line Web Design - July 16, 2014 - The Bachetti Motorsports team was back in action this past weekend with the usual visits to Accord Speedway on Friday night and Lebanon Valley Speedway on Saturday night.  The team also planned to race at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle, York on Sunday for the Wade Decker Memorial.

Friday night at Accord Speedway, Andy Bachetti and his team were hoping to get back on track after some recent bad luck.  He finished second in his qualifying heat race and lined up fifth for the main event.  At the drop of the green flag, Andy quickly moved into second place, and after a slight bobble fell back to third place.  On lap 11, two cars tried to make it three wide underneath Bachetti, they collided and one came down the track into Andy’s car, spinning him around and causing some front suspension and rear body damage.  They limped around for several laps, trying to salvage the best finish possible, but the right front shock tower broke off with two laps remaining and Bachetti was unable to continue.

Lebanon Valley Speedway was up next on Saturday night.  Bachetti was fast all night long, winning his qualifying heat race by a full straightaway over second place.  He started the main event from 10th place, and with the race going caution free until the closing laps, the field got strung out, making it hard to pass.  Andy did crack the top five by lap 15 and he maintained a fifth place finish through to the end of the race.

Bachetti Motorsports was looking to attend the Wade Decker Memorial at Thunder Mountain Speedway on Sunday, but Mother Nature had other plans.  The race was postponed due to persistent rain all day Sunday, and will be made up on August 31st.

Andy Bachetti and the Bachetti Motorsports team will return to Accord Speedway this Friday night, Lebanon Valley Speedway on Saturday night, and will make another trip to I-88 Speedway in Afton, New York on Wednesday, July 23rd for the Brett Deyo promoted Super Series Crazy 8’s Special.
