Thompson Motorsports Posts Pair of Top Tens

Brett Thompson 8th at Stockton; Rookie Hannah Newhouse Nets 4th at Magic Valley

JEROME, IDAHO (May 8, 2013)- Brett Thompson, driver of the #61 RTTI Chevrolet in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, had a typical short track run at the tricky quarter-mile layout of Stockton (CA) 99 Speedway in the G-Oil “150″ this past Saturday finishing 8th in round two of the series.

Stockton has been one of Thompson’s better tracks statistically over the years with two top five and six top ten finishes in six career starts at the historic oval.

“There was certainly a lot of action on-track Saturday,” Thompson said. “All four corners (of the car) were used up by the end of the race. The track can get real narrow out of two and we got spun a couple of times but were able to battle back and salvage a top ten finish.”

The finish moved Thompson up to fifth in the standings after two of 15 races. Thompson is just nine points behind fourth place and 16-points out of the top spot heading into the three race midwest swing with stops in Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri in the span of twelve days.

16-year old Hannah Newhouse made her second career start in the CarbonX Rocky Mountain Challenge Series this past weekend at Magic Valley Speedway in Twin Falls, Idaho notching a fourth place performance

“I am really happy about the outcome in the new car,” Newhouse offered. “I have so much to learn but I felt real comfortable in the seat and cannot wait to get to RMR and see how we do on a faster wider track. The Thompson team is fantastic and I appreciate how much support they are giving me. Our car worked really well and that is because of a great team.”

Newhouse will compete on consecutive weekends at Rocky Mountain Raceways outside SLC, UT. This weekend she will be in her ASA Intermountain Pro Truck and then on the 18th she will be back in the RMCS machine.
