“I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know,” an exasperated Arana Jr. said. “That was a total screwup. Very, very frustrating but nothing we can do about it but go to the next race and make up for it, so hopefully we can do just that.
Race day was even worse for Arana Sr., who got a jump on Round 1 foe Jerry Savoie only to get passed and beaten with a 6.875 at 194.24 mph to his 6.954 at 179.21 mph.
The tour takes a weekend off before returning to action Oct. 16-18 at Texas Motorplex near Dallas.
