December 1, 2006 - Kelly Linigen Interview.

Female driver Kelly Linigen has shown the strength of Rocket’s new XXX chassis, taking out third place in Round Seven of the Coca Cola Sprintcar Track Championship at Tyrepower Parramatta City Raceway.

It was an all round success for the Linigen team after the #25 XXX car took out fourth position in Time Trials, and then crossing the Hog’s Breathe Café Start/Finish line in fourth place in the heat.

“The car is wonderful! It has put a lot of interest into Rocket Industries and our results on the weekend are beginning to stop all the critics out there.”

As the night went on and the track got drier the degree of difficulty got stepped up a notch for the dash, but the 28 year old didn’t let it get to her, taking second position.

By feature time the track was extremely slick, and caught a few drivers out near the beginning but Kelly kept her cool and stayed in the top three all night, eventually finishing in a seasonal best third.

“It was a slick track, which I used to hate, but I am liking them more and more with more laps and more experience.”

This Saturday night, Round Eight of the Coca Cola Sprintcar Track Championship gets under way on the TPCR clay. Linigen racing will be there hoping to get similar results in the new XXX chassis.

On a sunny afternoon that turned into a very pleasant evening, Brooke had a good feeling and told his dad during their chat, that he would win for him.
