RACE UPDATE APRIL 5, 2008 - NASCAR WHELEN SERIES - 
ALL AMERICAN SPEEDWAY, ROSEVILLE, CA

Kristin Bumbera's first NASCAR Whelen Series race of the season at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA Saturday night was a rough one but she hung in there and gave a large group of TXI-Riverside Cement guests quite a show. A field of 22 cars started out of the 26 who attempted to qualify. 

Bumbera qualified the #00 for a 10th place position, 5th row outside. By the second lap she had moved into 9th position. On the 3rd lap as she was battling for 8th she was hit hard in the left front fender. For the next 2 laps the fender was rubbing the tire very bad and the smoke from her car was beginning to engulf the racetrack. She was forced to pit to remove the fender and went 2 laps down while the race continued. She pulled back onto the track on lap 7 right behind the front runners in 6th place. 

Although her car was knocked out of alignment Bumbera managed to race door to door in 6th position until only 5 laps were remaining. She braked to avoid hitting a spun car and immediately took off again. Officially finishing in 14th place, Bumbera had the 6th fastest time in practice before the race, ran in 6th position the majority of the race, and had the 6th fastest lap time during the 50 lap race.
