"Duluth was a tough way to start the season," said Christian. "I've dug us into a hole that's going to be tough to come back from. But we've come back before, and my crew and I look at this as motivation to win every time we get on the track."
Yurk returns to the Pro Lite class after narrowly missing the points championship last season. Talent runs deep in Pro Lite, perhaps the most competitive class on the circuit, making Yurk's season task a tough one. At Duluth, Yurk recovered from a DNF in the LCQ on Saturday to post a 5th place finish in Sunday's final.
"We had some bad luck on Saturday night which kept us out of the final," Yurk said. "Things went much better Sunday and we got a 5th place finish. We?re definitely not where we want to be, but we improved over the weekend. If we keep working we know results will come."
Scheele has bumped up to the Sport class for 2018-2019, letting go of his Junior class duties where he was dominant last season. The up-and-comer finished 10th in Friday's Sport final, then suffered a DNF in his first heat on Saturday, a point deficit he was not able to recover in the crowded class.
