  Big Week for Berry

Spokane, Washington - AJB Racing and driver Tony Berry are in the middle of a big week for the 22-year old. This past Saturday night Berry qualified his Idaho Army National Guard Chevrolet fourth in the second Inland Northwest Super Stock Association (INSSA) event of the year. Sunday Berry participated in Commencement Ceremonies at Gonzaga University in Spokane and this coming weekend Berry will get the opportunity to make his first start in the Dick Voss Racing #45 with the Washington Midget Racing Association (WMRA).

Saturday May 13th Tony Berry and the Idaho Army National Guard, Race Car Supply, Sign Service, Speed Sport Report, Joe’s Racing Products, Don Wilbur Windermere Chevrolet ran a 13.70 second lap, good enough for the fourth fastest time on the night. After starting from the pole in his first A-Trophy Dash in a Late Model car, Berry captured the win in front of a packed house. “Our Late Model team is new and we are just starting to get the car figured out. Our new C2P shocks really seem to be the difference, so I especially need to thank our Shock Specialist Nick Behn at Race Car Supply. I hope that this is the start of more good things to come so that we can put our sponsors out front more this season,” commented Berry.

After suffering a part failure on the #53 Late Model car in the main event, Berry brought the car home in the eighth position, one lap down. “We had the left rear shock mount break on us randomly. Unfortunately we couldn’t do much about it prior to the main event, so we were forced to adjust the set up on the car to lift the left side of the car up to pass the pre-race technical inspection. My crew scrambled hard on the car and thankfully we even made the race, albeit with a very loose racecar.”

On Sunday the 14th, Berry joined his fellow classmates at the Gonzaga University commencement ceremony at the Spokane Arena. The event was host to approximately 9,000 people and paid tribute to the almost 1,000 students who completed their degrees at the University.

This Saturday, May 20th, the WMRA will be making their only visit of the year to the ¼ mile oval at the Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho. Berry will be making his debut in the Dick Voss Racing #45 Nissan powered midget entry. “I am thrilled at the opportunity that Mr. Voss is giving me to drive his new car this weekend. The yellow #45 car is famous in the North West for running upfront for many years. I look forward to doing my part in continuing that tradition.” Berry and his team have already captured a midget win on dirt earlier this season.
