Champion Racing Oil, a recognized leader in racing and specialty lubricants, congratulates Robbie Price who piloted the Blake Cook owned No. 22x to a victory last Friday during the opening night of the Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic at Cottage Grove Speedway.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2021 -- Not only was the win Price's first of the season and the first behind the wheel of the Cook Racing 360ci sprint car, it came in his first race back behind the wheel since suffering a concussion during a wreck in early July.
"It was a really good weekend for us to get out and win and run well after about a month layoff," he said. "It really hurt me to sit and not run some of these bigger races, but I needed to put my health and mind first. Blake gave me a call and I felt good, so we decided to go racing and it paid off."
Price kicked off the two-race weekend on Friday by timing in eighth quickest overall. He then finished where he started - third - in a heat race to lock himself into the A Main. Price, who lined up on the outside of the fourth row in the feature, steadily worked his way forward. A pair of unfortunate incidents for the leaders helped set Price up to inherit the lead and he never looked back to capture the win and the $2,500 prize that came with it.
Price is unsure of his next racing plans. But is grateful to Blake Cook and Champion Racing Oil for giving him the opportunity to race in a competitive ride for a few nights.
