Musolino Help’s Our Fellow Racer!
For Immediate Release!
With the #21 Burd Bros Landscaping Super Dirt Late Model parked in the garage with engine troubles. Tony was called upon by fellow racer Paul “Jabo” Jablonski to fill his seat in his #3 Rush Crate Late Model at PPMS this past Saturday 6-15-2013. Jabo as he is known in the pits is recovering from a recent knee surgery that required him to take a week off from racing. Tony, Jabo and crew went all over the car getting it ready for Saturdays event, the Saturday prior it had been in a wreck and required some work. Prior to the race Saturday Tony stated “It’s good to get back behind the wheel while were waiting on the motor for the #21. I really appreciate Jabo for giving me this opportunity.” The Rush Crate Late Models are essentially the same type of car as the #21 Super Dirt Late Model with the main difference being in the horsepower of the motors. The Rush Crate Late Models run either a 602 or 604 Crate General Motors Motor which can not be altered from how it was shipped from GM. Whereas the Super Dirt Late Model’s can run basically any naturally aspirated engine they can fit under the hood with most racers having between 700-850 HP. Tony started Saturday off by participating in Hot Laps “practice” and came in feeling optimistic about the evening. Tony lined up in 6th position for the start of his heat race. At the drop of the green flag Tony took off and was able to pass a few cars and had 3rd place after the first lap. As the race went on the car started to develop a handling issues but Tony was still able to finish in 5th place. Tony finishing in 5th place qualified him for the Top 12 car redraw and after the redraw he started in 5th position for the feature event. At the start of the race Tony once again jumped up a few positions and was running 4th but was unable to get around the 3rd place car. As the race went on the car’s handling got worse and worse and Tony fell back lap after lap and finished 11th. Although this was not the finish Tony or the crew expected, car owner Jabo seemed pleased with the work that was done.
Heat Race Action from 6-15-2013
Tony and team had planned all season on running the Firecracker 100 at Lernerville speedway June 27-29 which is sanctioned by the World of Outlaws. However, building a 4th motor of the year wasn’t in the plans at the beginning of the season. With that the team will not be at Lernerville to race for the Firecracker 100. Although disappointed with the news, as this is most of the teams favorite race of the year, the team is optimistic about the rest of the season. Stay tuned for more news to come.

Musolino with Back 2 Back Podium Finishes
For Immediate Release:
Tony Musolino and the Musolino Motorsports Crew were at PPMS the past 3 weeks.
The first night out in the newly sponsored Burd Bros Landscaping #21 Rocket Super Dirt Late Model was not the debut the team was looking for. After a lap 1 collision in the heat race sent Tony into the turn 1 and 2 wall the body was heavily damaged. Tony was able to finish the heat race but the body was damaged heavily. The crew spent the time between the heat race reconstructing the body on from the cockpit of the car to the rear spoiler. Tony was able to answer the bell for the feature and after starting last finished 9th overall.
The following week Tony and Crew were back at PPMS looking to rebound from a not so impressive first night. From the time the car hit the track for Hot Laps you could tell the setup was going to be better then night one. Tony started last in the first heat place after drawing a pill for his starting spot of 75 out of a possible 75. Tony was able to power the Burd Bros Landscaping #21 Rocket Super Dirt Late Model to a 4th place finish in the heat race. The fourth place finish in the heat race put Tony in the redraw for the top 12 starting positions. After the redraw Tony stood lucky dog with the pole position. At the drop of the green flag Tony fell back a few positions, however he bounced back and held onto 2nd place. Tony held off the charges of other competitors and finished 2nd in the race to race winner Michael Norris. After the race Tony commented “The car felt really good, I could drive it wherever I wanted. We will make a few changes in the garage and try again next week.”
The third race of the year was once again back at PPMS. After a very trying week, Tony and the team were excited to be at the track. Pulling a better pill this week Tony started 3rd in the 2nd heat and held that position the entire race and qualifying for the redraw. This time Tony wasn’t lucky enough to start on the pole but still had a solid starting position at 6th. At the drop of the green flag Tony jumped into 5th place and started moving forward. After having to break check for another car Tony fell back from the 4 lead cars. Gaining the momentum back Tony started to real in the 4 cars when a caution flew for a car that hit the turn 1 wall after having a mechanical failure. On the restart Tony lined up in the 4th positions. After a few laps Tony made his way around the 3rd place car and set his eyes on 2nd place. Tony was able to complete the pass for 2nd place a few laps later. By this time the eventual event winner Kyle Lukon had distanced himself from the pack and strolled onto the victory with Tony in 2nd place. “I was really hoping for a caution late in the race, I think if I could have gotten close to the leader I might have been able to challenge him. ” stated Tony Musolino after the race.
Tony and team will take this next weekend off and plan on tackling “the action track” Lernerville Speedway on May 17th!
For the first time Tony and the team ran an on board camera.
