William Hargreaves with the Dirt Panda racing team took home his first win of the season tonight in the Bootleg Racing League Dirt Street Stock Series 40 lap event at the Tulsa Chili Bowl holding off Brandyn Proudfoot and Carl Kilgore. The 24-car field had a hard time finding their way around the small track with caution after caution as the drivers quickly found themselves running out of room going into the turns. Strong restarts from Hargreaves and short green flag runs left Proudfoot with very few chances to challenge for the lead.
“I was just hanging on hoping that I would be the one to cross the finish line first.”, Hargreaves commented about tonight turning into a race of survival. Seeming to favor the high line, it worked out well for him as he led every lap. “On some of the restarts there I was kind of trying a few times a different line or two or whatever and as far as I saw there really was nothing anywhere else for me. [Kilgore] was running the bottom there looked like pretty decent. I just stuck with what was working.”
Hargreaves is now the fourth different winner of the season with only four races in. Proudfoot still holds the lead in the point standings, with a total of 305 points, ahead of Hargreaves with 282. Billy Northcutt fell back to 3rd place with 267 points after finishing in 9th tonight. Proudfoot has built a sizable gap between himself and his direct competitors, but his position in the standings is still within reach if his luck turns over the next few weeks.
