Sunday Strategy Play For Jack Daniel's Racing

The Jack Daniel's Racing outfit has made a significant strategy play on tyres, with the Nissan Altimas of Rick and Todd Kelly set to have an extra set of tyres at their disposal for the final 200km race of the SKYCITY Triple Crown at Hidden Valley Raceway.

After Rick and Todd finished 17th and 20th in the opening 100km race, the team elected to reuse their tyres in the second encounter.

The move gives both drivers an additional set of fresh hard tyres, as well as the two allotted sets of soft tyres, for the final race on a circuit that is proving punishing on tyres.

The final 200km long race will follow on from a 20 minute long qualifying session.


RICK KELLY - #15 Jack Daniel's Racing Nissan Altima:
Qualifying Race 17- 18th
Qualifying Race 18- 21st
Race 17- 17th
Race 18- 22nd

"I'm actually not too dissatisfied with the car itself," said Rick Kelly.

"I feel we didn't get the most out of it in qualifying, and it put us back a bit.

"So we took that opportunity to put all of our eggs in the Sunday basket so to speak.

"Considering we ran those tyres for well over 200km, when you take into account the qualifying laps, I thought it wasn't too bad.

"I'm keen to see how we fare tomorrow; we've obviously got a tyre advantage now over most of the field, so we should be able to move forward with that.

"We also seem to be a bit stronger on the soft tyres than we are on the hards, so that should help us as well.

"It's good for us, but we'll see what tomorrow has in store."

TODD KELLY - #7 Jack Daniel's Racing Nissan Altima:
Qualifying Race 17- 19th
Qualifying Race 18- 23rd
Race 17- 20th
Race 18- 23rd

"On paper it sets up for a good Sunday," said Todd Kelly.

"But we need to fulfil our end of the bargain tomorrow; hopefully we do nail that because it will provide a good little advantage at the start.

"Hopefully we'll be able to make up some ground, and slightly change our strategy on the soft tyres.

"The potential is there to have a better result tomorrow than what we've had so far.
"You never know what can happen, so hopefully we can pull it off."
