CORR 2006: Eric Ruppel Bark River summary

After an expensive weekend in Crandon, Eric Ruppel and his Loose Cannon CORR Sportsman Stock race team headed to Bark River without all their horses. After breaking a connecting rod during the last round of racing in Crandon, the team decided to drop in a true street stock engine so they wouldn't miss the action in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

"We didn't have the time or the funds to build a new engine, so we are doing what we can to get whatever points a solid finish can bring," commented Eric Ruppel.

Saturday - Round 5

Ten trucks took the green flag and Eric and his #837 Chetek Off-Road, Art Carr Transmission, Phil's Inc. AMSOIL BFGoodrich Tire Ford-F150 headed into Turn One looking to finish the race on the lead lap. The race was uneventful, as Eric methodically passed a few of his competitors and came home on the lead lap, in 5th place at the finish.

Sunday - Round 6

Eric was looking for a repeat performance of Saturday's race. Again Eric stayed clear of any trouble entering Turn One, and took off with the same game plan. Again Eric stayed on the lead lap and finished in 6th place.

"When we came to the track, everybody didn't believe that I just dropped an engine in from a truck off the street. Heck, after Saturday the motor burned up three quarts of oil in each 15-minute race. Running AMSOIL products in the engine saved us from losing this engine. Now we have some time to get our new motor put together before we come back here for round 7 & 8."

Currently Eric Ruppel is in 6th place in the 2006 CORR Sportsman Stock Championship.
