Tim Bainey Jr. Makes Debut in the #00 Aaron’s Dream Machine



Tim Bainey Jr. made his debut as driver of the #00 Aaron’s “Dream Machine” Saturday Night in the “Farmer Foods 250” at South Boston Speedway in Virginia.


“It was great to finally get behind the wheel, and get the Dream Machine on the track,” said a smiling Tim Jr. after the event. “I have to thank everyone at Aaron’s for their support, they’re a great group of people and we’re very proud to be representing them as the Aaron’s Racing Team.”


“It wasn’t the night we were hoping for on the track, we had a problem with a right rear wheel spacer – it messed us up in qualifying and took us out of contention for a good finish early in the race.”


“The guys in the crew did a great job working to get things back into shape and allow us to finish the race with a good car, but it was one of those problems that unfortunately you couldn’t expect – with a new season, comes new parts, new bolts, and sometimes even the best new stuff can be faulty – that’s what happened tonight. It’s a tough way to start out the season, but all things considered a 23rd place finish and a car that is all in once piece… is a lot better than where we started out in the points race last season.”


Tim Jr. was 22nd quickest in Friday’s Practice session with the #00 Aaron’s Dream Machine, the team made a few adjustments and hoped to better that position for the Saturday afternoon qualifying session.


“The car seemed to be pretty good,” said Crew Chief Dan Bainey. “Timmy wanted to get it to turn a little better in the middle, so we made a few changes to try and get him that for qualifying. We were a little surprised when he was 31st overall in qualifying, we were expecting something inside the top-20 – but then after we found the wheel spacer problem early in the race… it added up as to why the car was so bad in qualifying.”


Tim Jr. and the #00 Aaron’s Team still managed a 23rd place finish in the season opener – and now sit 17th in the Northern Division Point Standings. The next event for the team will be May 3rd, at Shenandoah Speedway in Shenandoah, VA.
