William Hargreaves with the Dirt Panda racing team takes home his second win in a row tonight leading every lap in the Bootleg Racing League Dirt Street Stock Series at Cedar Lake Speedway ahead of Shawn Hayes and Billy Northcutt. Brandyn Proudfoot seemed to struggle early on, starting in 14th, but found the speed later on as he climbed up to 5th at the end.
As the season is coming up on the halfway point next weekend, when asked if his focus is on the championship and are things starting to favor his way, Hargreaves commented, “I don’t know if I’d say that for sure. Anything can happen in a blink of an eye. We’ve all seen it week in and week out. I had a little bit of bad luck a few weeks back and now the last two weeks I’m the winner. It changes just that fast. I’m just honestly here to have fun. This is by far the best league I’ve ran in.”
With his win tonight, Hargreaves took the lead in the point standings with 366 points. Brandyn Proudfoot, who finished 5th tonight, moved back to 2nd place trailing behind the lead by 2 points. Northcutt holds onto 3rd place with 241 points. As the season moves on to the next round, it becomes clear that the battle for the championship is going to come down to one of these three drivers without a shocking upset to knock one of them out on contention before then.
