Bootleg Racing League | Season 9 | Round 6
Dirt Street Stock Series | Lernerville Speedway
Brandyn Proudfoot took his Jim Beaver eSports machine to victory lane after a chaotic race with the Bootleg Racing League Dirt Street Stock Series around Lernerville Speedway. Multiple incidents in the middle of the field kept forcing the drivers to stack back together and prevented Proudfoot from ever getting very far ahead of the rest of the field.
This was Proudfoot’s 5th win of the season giving him a 33 point gap between himself and Johnny Ratley in 2nd place in the point standings. Billy Northcutt holds onto 3rd trailing by 50 points behind the lead. As Proudfoot builds himself a more comfortable gap, Ratley and Northcutt will have to put in some strong performances going forward to still have a chance at the championship before it becomes a complete shut out.
Proudfoot’s strong restarts made the race for him as he held the lead through nine cautions on his way to the checkered flag. “If you’re going at the same spot, everybody’s gonna try to anticipate.”, Proudfoot explained as he shared with us his restart strategies. “Just kind of stagger your starts, that’ll usually help you to try and get off on those better starts and keep your enemies on their toes.”
