An eighth-place finish on March 23 at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, N.C., provided some optimism heading into the April 13 event at South Boston (Va.) Speedway.
“Last year, South Boston is where we got our season on track,” he said just prior to the event. “Hopefully, we can do that again.”
Well, not so much. The 150-lap South Boston race ended on lap 130 for Bohn when his car spun on the frontstretch and made contact with the inside retaining wall. More repair work is in store for the Bohn camp this week as the Southern Modifieds head to Caraway for the Spring Fling 150 on April 20.
On the bright side Caraway was the site of Bohn’s first tour win last October.
“Caraway is a tricky track,” said Bohn. “You have to do well there in this tour to have a good points finish. It’s tough on tires and that’s the key. Saving something for the end is critical there. I think we’ve made some gains there and we’re getting it figured out despite the accident last month.”
In a season that very little has gone right, Bohn remains optimistic.
“No one is off to a blazing start for the most part, so we’ll keep digging see what we can do. It’s not where you start. It’s where you finish.”
