A spokesperson of the Whirlwind Team has announced that #07 Gino Martens will retire from the Trucks Championships for the remaining races, excluded Daytona. Reason is, besides inexperiency, that 2 races a week is a bit too much and 1 had to fall out. The choice for Trucks is easily made if you look at the Lites Standings. Gino Martens: "I find it very difficult to retire for the remaining races, but will try to drive Daytona since that track isn't the hardest track to drive. After my mistakes of Talladega and lately also Atlanta, I feel I do have much more to learn before I can join the Trucks series. The open setups are the most difficult thing to overcome, and I want to take the time to learn and come back in January."

An idea could be to practice with trucks to work a bit on the setup. You could bring that particular setup to the next season.

I am going to pracice :P but last weeks I couldn't practice enough which results in bad driving and car handling on the track, especially Atlanta on which I only practiced for 20 minutes before the race.
