Rockstar Energy Racing's Blake Wharton finished 3rd in St. Louis for his 2nd podium in the first 3 races of the East Coast 250 Championship.
"Track was good in St. Louis, dirt is always good here and it turned out to be the same this weekend. I got the heat race win which is never a bad thing. You're never gonna complain about that. In the main my start was pretty average but I managed to work my way up pretty quick and find myself in 2nd. It was kind of a battle there for a while with me and Wil [Hahn} and then with Dean [Wilson]. I ended up getting passed back to third where I finished. I felt better this weekend. Still trying to make improvements and get faster and faster. We're 3 rounds in but there's still a lot more racing. I felt I wasn't 100% out there and I know what I'm capable of. I rode well but I have more. It's a matter of putting it down, getting in the groove and not looking back or resting. It's wide open for 15 laps. Going to Daytona next weekend which is an unpredictable track and we're gonna try to get on the top step." - Blake Wharton
