PERSISTANCE GOES THE DISTANCE FOR TROY TAYLOR

By Mike Young

Troy Taylor had himself a day....well most of it.

Taylor's day began when his wife accidentally left her cell phone on the truck...it fell off and was later found in pieces on I-45. Then later Taylor's transmission gave up the ghost and he was stranded until a friend with a wrecker could get there, but wait there's more! The wrecker broke down on the way! So it was nothing short of amazing that Taylor made it to Battlegrounds  to race at all. But when he did he made it count by winning the 25 lap feature over 2 time series champion Tristan Dycus and Chris Brown.

It was a battle of attrition as of the 21 cars in the field only 9 were still running at the end after numerous cautions and some eroding track conditions which tore up quite a few cars including 3rd place finisher Brown's #21.

And oh yes, on the final lap Taylor wasn't done with his day yet............The water pump busted sending a puff of black smoke into the air. We hope he made it home ok!
