In the Rearview Mirror: Pocono Raceway … Josh Williams and his No. 6 Musselman’s Applesauce Chevrolet SS battled during the practice session on making the car handle. After making several laps during the only ARCA practice on Friday, Williams reports an issue and brings his No. 6 Chevy to the garage and allows for Crew Chief Danny Johnson and team to evaluate his machine. After looking over his Musselman’s Chevy, the team identified the issue to be a broken Track Bar Mount. The No. 6 crew changed out the mount just in time for qualifying, allowing him to start the ModSpace 150 from the 8th position. After the drop of the green flag, Williams completed a short 14 laps before reporting gear issues as he wheeled around the “Tricky Triangle”. On lap 26, Crew Chief D. Johnson sent Josh and the No. 6 Chevrolet back on the track after assessing issues in the garage area, only to be forced back behind the wall on lap 36 with rear housing issues. These misfortunes would bring a 26th place finish to the JWM team.
