Racing has been good the in the past month for Reid. He has found a great flow in the Team EJP Racing #59 car collecting top 5 finishes throughout New England. Being one of the top guys on the course has become “business as usual” for Lanpher, and this past weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, business was good!
With Saturday’s practice rained out the team had limited time to get the car setup right for racing on Sunday. They would work extra hard during Sunday’s practice to get the car on point for the green flag.
Lanpher started the main event with a fairly loose car but as the race went on the car improved greatly. The closing laps were described by shorttrackscene.com as follows – “Lanpher’s car had long-run speed, and despite the driver’s concerns that he might not make the checkered flag, he set off in pursuit of MacDonald with thirteen laps to go. Lanpher caught MacDonald as the two approached lap traffic with only a couple laps remaining. Coming off turn two on the final lap, the Manchester, Maine native went to the outside, pinning MacDonald to the inside line and taking the lead down the backstretch. MacDonald could not return the move, with Lanpher leading to the checkered flag.”
“I think this was a great tune up leading into my next K&N race in July..” said Reid. He also hopes to carry this momentum into the “$10,000 to win “ race at Seekonk Speedway.
