The Benjamin Motorsports team just raced the Oxford 250 in there last race which is the biggest one day short track race in the country. With over 750 campers and 10,000 fans in attendance Travis was excited to put on a good race. In practice the 7 car was fastest and the team was ready to race. After qualifying 7th the teams as getting ready for the main event.
At the start of the 250 lap race Travis would drive up to 3rd quickly and was just running there till he ran over some metal and would cut the right rear brake line. So for the next 125 laps Travis would have very little brakes. At the pit stop the team came in the pits 6th and after a lengthy pit stop to fix the brakes the 7 car would come out of the pits in 36th. Travis would fight hard and would take the lead with 40 laps to go. Travis thought he might get his 3rd win in this event but there where a few cautions the last 30 laps and that would leave the team falling back to 7th at the end of the race.
“I really thought we had a good chance of winning our 3rd 250 but with the cautions at the end it really killed us and let everyone catch up to us. I got hit on one of the restarts and it put us back there and we couldn’t come back from it! Thanks to all my sponsors who support us each and every week!” Travis said after the long race
