August 11, 2002 - Baltimore, MD

The ASA Racing Series rolled into Toledo Speedway on Sunday, August 11, 2002 for the Metro-Toledo Northwest Ohio Ford Dealers 300. In the past 15 ASA races at the Ohio ½ mile 11 different drivers have taken the checkers. Also, the track was recently re-surfaced to make for some fast and fearsome competition.

JC Beattie Jr. and ATI Performance Racing pulled into Toledo Speedway with confidence after a testing session at the speedway in late July produced positive results. The ATI #09 ran well on the new surface during testing and likewise in practice and qualifying on Saturday.

"Testing really helped us," said JC. " It gave us a good idea of where we stood and what changes we needed to make to the car."

The Glass City Dixieland Jazz Band kicked off the events on Sunday during the traditional on-track autograph session as fans flocked to their favorite ASA drivers for autographs. It was then time to get busy for Beattie who started 16th in the 33-car field. Early on, JC moved up to 13th position and was soon to crack the top ten until one of 14 cautions in total brought the field to pit road for the first round of stops. A miscue among the crew caused JC to miss his pit stall and lose crucial seconds during the stop. The ATI #09 came out of the pits in 21st losing eight spots. JC worked his way back into the top fifteen in the remainder of the caution stricken race and finished the day in 14th.

"The car was great we just screwed up in the pits and lost a lot of time," commented JC. "It was a tough race with a lot of bumping and banging. I felt fortunate not to get caught up in any mishaps."
