Stick a fork in Marty Roth's weekend.
Roth Racing Withdraws #25 Car At Milwaukee.This will be the second "Did Not Start" (DNS) for Roth this year. In fact, Roth's entire season has been, well, very very bad.
It was a tough first practice session for Roth Racing in preparation for Sunday’s ABC Supply Co, A.J. Foyt 225, at the famed Milwaukee Mile, as both John Andretti and Marty Roth made contact, in separate incidents, with the turn 2 wall.
For Andretti the damage wasn't that significant, unfortunately the same couldn''t be said about Roth's #25 car.
Late during the morning practice session team owner Marty Roth got loose exiting corner 2 and, despite trying to save it, did a half spin and hit the outside wall with the left side of the car.

"We lost the right rear shock, it was fading the entire session and then went completely south in the last outing. We can't fix the car for this race. Our focus has to turn to Texas."

How he hasn't run out of chassis we'll never know, and remember for this he gets $1.3M in TEAM program funding. Good gracious.
