Bohn Hoping For Caraway Rebound

ASHEBORO, N.C. – Thirteen simply isn’t working for Danny Bohn.

The 2012 season ended on a high note for Bohn with Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors and a championship runner-up finish in the point standings for the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. He also performed well in a couple non-NASCAR events last Fall. The second-generation driver out of Freehold, N.J., was anxious to take the next step in 2013, but it has been a nightmare, so far.

“After the way that last season ended I was really stoked about 2013. We spent hours and hours on the car and had it right where we wanted it,” said the 24-year-old Bohn. “Some bad luck has made us put it back together a couple times now.”

So many times the first race of the season sets the tone for the tone for the year and that tone was more than a little flat for Bohn. His run at the UNOH Battle At The Beach on the .4-mile oval at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway ended when his car flipped on the frontstretch. The incident has proven to be an omen for things to come.

The points season got underway at Caraway Speedway near Asheboro, N.C., on March 16 with another accident that caused quite a bit of damage to his No. 65 Rifenburg Construction/Rustoleum Chevrolet.

“We got a lot of help and got the car put together after Daytona and basically destroyed it again at Caraway,” Bohn said. “It hasn’t been a good start to the season, but there’s time to turn it around.”
