This was Bird’s second NPK final round appearance of the season. He lost to Martin at the first event at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio in early June.
Speculation, though, is that the first final round did not count, as it was an exhibition and a non-points race. We’ll truly find out if that’s the case when the show airs in October, according to social media posts by teams.
Bird and his crew have been through one heck of a week. He crashed The Probe at Palm Beach International Raceway.
Then over the next seven days, his crew and others worked together to get The Probe back in one piece for this event. Bird will have to repair more damage to the car.
He crashed into the wall twice during completion on Saturday and early Sunday. The team will have some time off before the fourth race of the season.
