- Engine woes spoil promising night for Alex Pokorski at Plymouth Dirt Track
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 21, 2022 - What was shaping up to be the best outing of the season for Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car driver Alex Pokorski of West Bend, Wis. quickly turned to disappointment when engine issues struck his Akright Auto Racing Team No. 4 car to cut his night short at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 18. Pokorski's night got off to a strong start as he ripped off the second fastest qualifying lap in the 26-car PDTR 360 Sprint Car field with a lap of 12.435 seconds. After rolling off third in the third PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race, Pokorski held down the third spot throughout the 10-lap event on the hammer-down, lightning-fast third-mile clay oval track surface to earn a transfer spot to the 25-lap A main. The third-year 360 Sprint Car competitor started a 2022 season-best eighth in the PDTR 360 Sprint main event. As track conditions rapidly changed from fast and tacky to dry and slick in the opening laps of the A main, Pokorski was running eighth when the first caution flag of the race appeared on lap 6 for the stalled car of Preston Ruh. On the restart, Pokorski bolted past Tyler Davis and Lance Fassbender to take over sixth in the running order. Pokorski was closing in on the top five when his car suddenly lost power and rolled to a stop in turn three on lap 8 with an ailing engine. The engine issues proved to be terminal as Pokorski was credited with a 22nd place finish in a race won by Travis Arenz. "We had just put this motor in prior to Saturday's show," Pokorski said. "The car felt really good for the whole night and was very fast until the point when the motor blew up. It was encouraging to have a strong showing in qualifying, the heat race and to be running well in the feature. There were no warning signs before it blew. It's just an unfortunate break. Sometimes these things happen in racing." With the PDTR and MSA 360 Sprint Cars idle on Saturday, June 25, Alex Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team will return to action on Thursday, June 30 with the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and MSA 360 Sprint Cars running in support of the Road America Challenge Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event in held conjunction with the NASCAR Cup Series weekend at Road America in nearby Elkhart Lake, Wis. Pit gates open at 2 p.m. with spectator gates opening at 4:30 p.m., qualifying at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. "I am very lucky to have a dedicated car owner in Spyder Akright and to have all the supportive people around to help us change motors and work on the car," Pokorski said. "Even fellow competitor, Dylan Winkel, stopped by to help us take a motor out Sunday morning, which was very kind of him. It's really cool to have help from guys you compete with on a week-to-week basis. Our plan is to put in a spare motor and be back out for the next show on Thursday, June 30."
