All the Comet drivers in Pro Swift continue to improve every race weekend. Logan Adams was the first to step up with second place finish and laps led in Saturday’s two heat races. Starting on the front row for the final Logan didn’t have a great start but battled back to finish 6th with Adam Maxwell picking up 8th, Sam Hinds in 9th and Bryson Morris in 11th. Garrett Adams was sent off track on lap two and didn’t finish. Despite a tough run on Saturday Garrett bounced back to qualify second on Sunday and pick up third in Pre-Final. In the final Garrett would end up 5th with Logan Adams in 7th, Sam Hinds in 10th and Bryson Morris in 11th.

“It was a great weekend, I see our drivers improving every weekend and I’m really excited for the rest of the season. I think we will see them fighting for wins all season long. The focus we have put on our engine program has really paid off over the last 18 months and we are working hard everyday.” said Mark Dismore Jr. with Comet Racing Engines.

Gary Lawson summed up the weekend “I’m really proud of our program. The drivers are really engaged with our driver coaching and the engine and chassis tuning is going very well. Most of these kids are in new classes this season and have already shown they can run up front.”
