Education Matching Service College Complete Spokesman Justin Lofton Continues Hot Streak in Kansas with Seventh Place Run in his NASCAR truck

Sea Cliff, NY (PRWEB) April 23, 2012

Justin Lofton tallied his fourth straight top-10 run on Saturday at Kansas Speedway, continuing his strong start to the 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season. Lofton started the SFP 250 from the third position, and after his No. 6 College Complete (, 877.543.2655) team adjusted on his Chevrolet throughout the day, crossed the finish line in the seventh position.

"I am so proud of these guys on this College Complete team. We battled with the truck a little bit out there. It was pretty aero tight. We made a few adjustments and it helped a little bit. For some reason I was off just a small amount on a few of those restarts, but we'll take seventh. You know it's a good day when you are upset about a top-10," Lofton said.

Lofton began his visit in Kansas early, spending the day Thursday at Fort Riley Army base. The visit was Lofton's third in as many years. This time, he brought along his entire No. 6 College Complete Eddie Sharp Racing (ESR) team. On Saturday, Lofton was joined by two dozen soldiers from Fort Riley for the 167-lap race. Knowing that many of the soldiers who were on hand had just returned from a deployment overseas, Lofton was motivated to bring home a strong run for them.

Once the green flag waved at the 1.5-mile Kansas track, it took only two laps for the field to see a caution flag. On lap 37, the yellow was out again, allowing Lofton to make his first pit stop of the race. He pulled down pit road to the attention of his College Complete team for four tires, fuel, and a spring rubber adjustment. The No. 6 team pulled into the pits in fifth, and after a solid stop, rejoined the race in fifth.

As the race went on, the only complaint Lofton had was that his Chevrolet seemed to be riding a little rough on the right side, noting that the truck was battling an aero-tight condition.

With just under 100 laps left to run, Bormann called him down pit road for another pit stop. After pulling back on track however, the yellow flag waved, putting Lofton 13th for the restart.

Less than six laps later, he had muscled his way back into the top-10. The California racer continued his charge until being called down pit road once they hit their fuel window 17 laps from the finish. Bormann opted for two tires only, sending Lofton back on track in 14th.

As the stops cycled through the field and the laps clicked down, Lofton wheeled his way into the seventh position. The result gave him his fourth straight top-10 finish. Just four races into the 2012 season, Lofton has already surpassed his top-10 count from 2011. He is currently third in the driver point standings, 11 points out of the top spot.

Lofton and his College Complete ESR team will observe a few off weeks in truck competition before returning to the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 18th.

Lofton however, will not be too far from a race vehicle, as he plans on running two off-road events in his No. 77 class 1500 General Tire / College Complete buggy.

Free Education Matching Service College Complete and Justin Lofton Team Notch Second Straight Top-Five Finish With Fourth Place Run in Martinsville

Martinsville, VA (PRWEB) April 01, 2012

Despite a month-long break in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) competition, Justin Lofton and the No. 6 College Complete (, 877-543-2655) Eddie Sharp Racing (ESR) team were able to keep the momentum from their third place finish in Daytona rolling this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. Lofton and team had a strong weekend from start to finish, which left them with an impressive fourth place effort on Saturday.

I am so proud of the guys on this College Complete team. Dan (Bormann, crew chief) followed great strategy and our pit crew picked up positions in the pits every time. It was a lot of fun out there. The truck was dialed in and I cant thank all of the guys enough for the hard work in preparing this College Complete Chevrolet Silverado, Lofton said.

Lofton turned his first laps of the week during two practice sessions at the paper-clip shaped Martinsville short track on Friday. The No. 6 College Complete Chevrolet showed eighth in the first session, and fifth in the second session. On Saturday, rain delayed the start of qualifying temporarily, but once underway, Lofton again found his way to the top of the speed chart by qualifying sixth for the Kroger 250.

Once the green flag waved, Lofton maintained a seventh place run through his first pit stop of the day on lap 77. At that point in the race, Lofton noted that his College Complete Chevrolet needed help in the center. After getting an air pressure adjustment on his four new tires, Lofton rejoined the race in sixth.

As the race hit the halfway mark on lap 125, Lofton maintained the sixth position. Within laps, he picked up another spot, re-entering the top-five. 40 laps later, Lofton drove his College Complete Chevrolet down pit road for the teams second pit stop of the day. Again, Lofton added that he needed a bit of help through the center. After another tire change, the crew sent him back on track in the fourth spot. The team made two pit stops throughout the race and both times Loftons over the wall crew gained positions.

Shortly after the restart, Lofton made good use of his fresh tires and wheeled his way to third. He muscled his way around the half-mile Virginia short track within the top-five through the remainder of the race.

With 40 laps left to run, Lofton radioed to his crew that he felt as though the brakes were fading in his No. 6 College Complete Chevrolet due to the constant braking around the dicey short track.

Two more caution flags waved as the laps clicked down. A late race caution flag with less than 15 to go gave the field a six-lap run to the finish. Lofton took the final restart from the fourth spot and showcased the speed in his machine and his talent as he drove home to his second top-five finish in as many races.

I am really happy to leave Martinsville with a top-five. Ive had decent runs here before, but always seemed to get caught up in something. Today, everything hit just right and we got a good finish, Lofton added. To get such good runs at Daytona and Martinsville, tracks that are hit or miss and really tough, it sets a good tone for our season.

Lofton and the College Complete team will observe an off week in competition before heading to Rockingham Speedway on April 15th.
