Bootleg Racing League | Season 9 | Round 5
Dirt Street Stock Series | Cedar Lake Speedway
Brandyn Proudfoot of Jim Beaver eSports held off Johnny Ratley and William Hargreaves around 40 intense laps with the Bootleg Racing League Dirt Street Stock Series at Cedar Lake Speedway and took home the checkered flag. Under constant attack, Proudfoot put on a flawless performance with his competition staying within a few tenths of a second waiting for an opportunity to take that victory away.
With his 4th win for the season, Proudfoot is starting to build a comfortable gap between himself and Ratley in the points standings, now 18 points separating these two champion caliber drivers. Billy Northcutt came home in 4th and holds onto the 3rd spot in the standings with only 33 points between himself and Proudfoot.
“He (Ratley) had that top working so, so well and he was just killing me off the exits. He got a bunch of sliders going into one and two using that momentum.” Proudfoot, who loves a hard battle as much as any driver, had his work cut out for him with Ratley keeping the pressure on him. “I’m definitely exhausted from this. That was one of the best battles I’ve had in a long time. Thank you, Johnny (Ratley).”
