Charlotte, N.C. (December 7, 2015) – Dalton Sargeant and the No. 5s GALT Wauters Motorsports Toyota Camry team had a day full of excitement in their second Snowball Derby together. After setting the fourth fastest lap in two practice sessions, qualifying and final practice Sargeant finished in the fourth position in the historic 300-lap event.
Sargeant maintained a top-5 position on the track through 65 laps when the first caution of the day flew and veteran crew chief and owner decided to stay out while the leaders pitted, the driver agreed it would give the team a better tire allotment and position for the end of the race. The GALT Toyota Camry fell through most of the field and received the lucky dog award at lap 120, receiving the first new set of tires. Those new tires and a fast Wauters Motorsports prepared Toyota Camry allowed Sargeant to cleanly charge through the 37-car field back into the top 5 with 63 laps remaining in the event. The final laps and short green-flag runs leading up to the finish required great track position to challenge for a position near the front and the No. 5s never was able to get that track position. Sargeant fought a tight race car and his progressed stalled, finishing solidly in the fourth position, remarkably his second top-five Snowball Derby finish in his first two attempts.
