Bonsignore and Janisch Battle for Allentown Indoor Win – PTD Exclusive

By MIKE MALLETT

Justin Bonsignore had a wild night to kick off the 2018 Indoor Racing Series for the TQ Midgets at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pa. The Long Island driver experienced a little bit of everything. He eventually went on to score the victory after starting way back in the 20th position after he had qualified on the podium. Needless to say, his night took a lot of twist and turns before he ended up in Victory Lane.

“We had a good strong practice in the top three and then we qualified really good,” cited the NASCAR Whelen Modified Series regular.  “In the heat race we were leading with three to go and I thought, ‘alright, this is going to be good we are going to be in the redraw, this is going to be easy peezy tonight.’ Then unfortunately we got wrecked. I’ve been doing this now for three years, been doing it a long time with the go karts. I’ve had a lot of struggles so I just learned not to let your highs get too high and your lows too low. Once we got to the top five in the feature the seas were just parting. The luck was coming to our side. It was a nice change.”

Bonsignore had some luck early in the feature as well as several cars in front of him either had mechanical issues or were involved in crashes. Bonsignore was able to navigate through the crashes without incident putting him just outside the top 10 with just a lap in the books. From there he took advantage of restarts to move forward.
