There are many racers who serve as a one-man team. Tim Eichorn is certainly one of those driver/car owner/crew chiefs utilizing free family help. Truthfully, Tim is usually busy building other people’s engines as part of the staff at Mustang Performance, and his budget also puts constraints on his ability to travel to all the races. However, at Beech Bend, Tim left it all on the track by earning the second qualifying spot behind class champ Charlie Booze Jr. Then he had an easy row to hoe until the final against another Hot Street underdog in Rick Riccardi. Unfortunately for Tim, it wasn’t to be a storybook ending. A heartbreaking 0.392 redlight start cut his weekend short.
