Inside Line Promotions – MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 18, 2016) – Josh Baughman was in contention for a win during the Winter Nationals last weekend.

Unfortunately, luck didn’t fall in Baughman’s favor during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

The action began on Friday when Baughman won a heat race before he advanced from fourth to second place in a qualifier. That ranked him second out of nearly 50 competitors in overall points and started him on the outside of the front row for the main event.

Baughman led the first 13 laps of the 25-lap main event before falling to third place. However, he remained in striking distance of the top spot until a collision with a lapped car with only four laps remaining resulted in Baughman getting upside down.

“It was a frustrating way to end the night because we were not only in contention for the win, but we were in one of the four lock-in spots for Saturday’s feature redraw,” he said after ending 18th.

The team returned to the half-mile oval on Saturday. Baughman won a heat race before he placed third in a qualifier to lock into the 13th starting position for the main event.

“On the start a couple of guys got together in front of me and I had nowhere to go,” he said. “I got into the frontstretch wall and it broke the Jacob’s Ladder.”

The race restarted before Baughman was able to return and he was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

“It was a rough weekend for sure,” he said. “We tore some stuff up. We just got caught up in mishaps in the features.”
