Side by Side Record? Idaho 200 Results + What's Next

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

We don't know if it is a record, but it sure ought to be. At the Idaho 200, we went head-to-head with Nick Gibson for over 30 laps. When our fans come to the Idaho 200 they expect a show. We wanted to give them one. It was fun to say the least. So we'll proudly take second on this knowing that we gave it our best. We're hoping he would blink and give us the edge but he is one heck of a racer and our hats are off to him. We always look forward to competing with the Gibson Team.

Would also like to say congratulations to Grant Thompson. We appreciate racing with him and his team. They are good folks.


On Friday we qualified second with a 13.943. Just missed fast time by .013 behind Nick Gibson. So with that we loaded the car in the trailer and moved our sights to Saturday.

We did have a chance to give a ride in the two-seater to Caanan Smith. Him and his band are pretty cool folks. They played for Friday night's concert which should become a new tradition for the Idaho 200.

With the invert we started 9th. By the 100 lap break we were in third. We didn't make a lot of adjustments. The second 100 is always when this race is decided and we had a solid car.

In the second half we mainly battled with Nick Gibson. For 30 plus laps we were side by side. We were on the outside so tire wear was high and eventually we had to fall back. We finished in second place.

We have a solid team and we couldn't do it without them. The HPR Crew is top notch and always gives it their best.

(Thank you Michele Martin for always taking awesome photos.)
