Tim Bainey Jr. & the #00 Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck Team’s Run at Indy Spoiled by Steering Problems



It was a tough day at ORP for Tim Jr. and the Aaron’s Dream Team. After a promising day of practice, the #00 Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck would develop mechanical problems in the steering system and see them end the night with a 31st place finish in the AAA Insurance 200 at ORP.


“We really worked hard today to get our Aaron’s Truck in shape for tonight’s race, and for it to end so early… it’s pretty disappointing for us,” said Tim Jr.


Making only their 2nd start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Tim Jr. and the Aaron’s Dream Team constantly improved throughout the day. They qualified 29th for the AAA Insurance 200 Event, and were very optimistic about the way the truck ran in practice.


“We worked on race setup all day,” said Tim Jr. “We ran our best time in practice on our very last run, on old tires, and I was really comfortable with the truck. We were pulling down pit road to make our sticker run and they threw the red flag to end practice.”


“We ended up being a little tight in qualifying and I’m sure we would have loosened it up a little bit had we got that run in… but overall – I’m thrilled with the way things are coming together for our Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck Team. I mean – for only our 2nd trip out at this level – it’s hard to not be smiling about where we are at!”


“I have to thank everyone at Aaron’s for allowing us to be out here doing this,” Tim Jr. added. “Nights like this are tough, but we’ll head back to the shop and get things ready for Bristol. We’ve ran really well there in the past and I think it’s a place where we are going to be able to really turn some heads in a few weeks.”
