Heartbreak for Ryan at the Chili Bowl
After a solid night's racing in the Qualifiers, Tim Ryan would line up in P7 on the grid for the 55 lap finale. The pre-race warmup was perfect with Tim setting the fastest laps of the warmup, and confidence was high.
Within just a few laps had been able to climb up two places before the first caution on lap 2, and then climbed a further two places into 3rd place before an ambitious Aiden Purdue would hit into the side of Tim putting him into a spin. Whilst Aiden did get an immediate end of line penalty for the incident, unfortunately the damage caused from the contact gave Tim a meatball flag and ended his race on Lap 5.
A disheartening result for what looked like an exciting night's racing, as the pace certainly looked to be there to challenge for the win. Congratulations to Cole Cabre and Driven Sim-Sport on taking the win.
