The Ford Racing Mustang Challenge double header at Barber Motorsports Park had a lot of action. Some good, some not so good. Number 5 Andrew Hendricks took a trip to the hospital after a bad wreck totalled his car and left him with a concussion. Ted Anthony of T.C. Motorsports stood on the top step of the podium after both races as well as earning pole position for Saturdays race. And through the highs and lows of the weekend, the current Mustang Challenge champion did what he always does. Drove hard and showed the tenacity and consistency that earned him the championship last year and one pole position and two solid second place finishes for the weekend.
Andrew "Ace" Caddell is not a fan of finishing second, but even at his young age, has enough racing experience to understand that a championship is won over a whole season with consistent driving and results. "We were hoping for rain in the race today," said Caddell, who set times well clear of the field in the wet morning warm-up. "I'm getting a little bit tired of second place, but he (Anthony) only gained seven points over the weekend. We have the best-handling car out here, but there are some other areas we are going to need to work on if we are going to be able to beat him. Ted had a great restart so I wasn't able to make it happen there, but it was still a great weekend for Kaufmann Racing."
Caddell and Kaufmann racing set their sights now on New Jersey Motorsports Park for the May 3rd race there.
