Marchant's Crazy Season Rolls On

KENLY, NC (April 14, 2013) - There was no full moon on Saturday night, but there might as well have been one, as the Charger race was filled with cautions, including one on the first lap. Driver of the No. 77 Lone Star Car Transportation Chevy, Garrett Marchant, was involved in that first wreck, which ended his night. Saturday’s crash continues a streak that no driver wants to hear; this was Marchant’s fourth race in a row where he has not finished.

The day started off pretty well though for the up and coming NASCAR driver, as Marchant turned fast laps in practice, followed by a strong qualifying round. Throughout the day the BMR Motorsports team made adjustments based on Marchant’s feedback and the difference could be seen. Laying consist lap times during qualifying, the No. 77 AFG Home Improvements / Kim’s Sweet Sensations Chevy would start the race in the sixth spot.

Once the race started, Marchant was picking up ground on the leaders as they raced towards turns three and four. The 77 had nowhere to go when two cars caused a chain reaction wreck involving a total of five cars before being able to complete lap one. “We had a really strong car tonight and I wished I could have proved it to everyone here that this car was one to beat,” Marchant said. “It seems like it has been this sort of year for us. That wreck was probably the hardest one I have ever had. I am going to feel it tomorrow.”

With the next scheduled Charger race at Southern National not till next month, the team and driver will take the time to diagnose the 77 @WalgreensCVAZ’s damage and see what can be done. There are hopes of returning to that first race back, but for a growing small team funding is an issue. Fans are always able to help Marchant with his racing by donating and in return they will be part of the annual Fan Car program.
