Seven Not so Lucky for Thompson at Spokane

Thompson Drops to Seventh with Two Races Left in NASCAR West Campaign

JEROME, IDAHO (September 9, 2011) Brett Thompson, driver of the RTTI/Jerome Truck Service Inc. Chevrolet, entered last weekend riding a four race race top ten finish streak, but unfortunately, a seventh place finish in the Spokane 200 for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series was not enough to keep him from dropping to seventh in the standings heading into the final two events of the season.

Thompson qualified ninth despite being one of the fastest cars in practice. Thompson stayed in tow with the leaders all night but was never able to mount a charge to the front. Thompson finished on the lead lap for the tenth time this season boosting his lap completion totals. Thompson has averaged a finish of 10.5 while completing 96% of all laps contested and has been running at the conclusion at eleven of the twelve races this season.

Despite the finish,Thompson is locked in a battle in the point standings where he is currently in seventh place just one point behind sixth place and 8-points out of fifth place.  In his NASCAR K&N Pro Series career, Thompson has started 111 NKNPS races since 2000 scoring one win, one Coors Light Pole Award, 23 top five and 63 top ten performances. His best points finish was fifth in 2009.

Thompson will have two more chances this season to climb back into the top five. He is off until October 15 when the series returns to All American Speedway in Roseville, CA where Thompson finished 8th earlier this season. The series will close out the 2011 campaign on November 12 at Phoenix (AZ) Int’l Raceway where Thompson finished fifth to start the season.

Tonight at Magic Valley Speedway in Twin Falls, Idaho, Thompson is honoring his sponsors and fans with an appreciation night where he will give rides in his two-seat stock car as well as provide food fun, and prizes to those that have supported the team throughout the season.
