Charlotte, N.C. (June 30, 2016) - Rookie Dalton Sargeant turned in another strong performance behind the wheel of his No.55 Toyota Racing Development powered by Windows 10 Camry, finishing ninth in Friday’s Corrigan Oil 200 at Michigan International Speedway.
Sargeant, who notched his sixth consecutive top-10 finish, qualified in 3rd but received cosmetic damage on a restart, losing valuable time at a very aerodynamic dependent race track. While the No. 55 was brought to pit road to fix the quarter panel and fresh tires and fuel, Sargeant was penalized on pit road for speeding. The costly penalty forced the 18-year old driver a drive through penalty dropping him one lap down to the leaders and a ninth place finish.
“Not the finish we were looking, finished in the 9th position after running in the top 5 all day, but got caught speeding on pit road and had to serve a penalty. I have a ton of faith in the people at Venturini Motorsports and this Toyota Racing Camry powered by Windows 10. We've got some work to do to get better on these big aerodynamic dependent race tracks but we will most definitely be better and will be competing for wins soon.”
