Ryan home in P2 after late race drama
The Oceanic Dirt Sim Events- ODSE 360 Sprintcar Power Series kicked off with the thydesigns 40 Lap Feud at the iconic Lernerville Speedway, and in what is a very strong field with many World Championship contenders, Tim Ryan had put together an excellent run, leading the way from the moment the green flag waved and managing the restarts and the threats from behind.
However late in the race with only a few laps remaining, rival Alex Bergeron attempted a slide job on Tim, only for it to more accurately resemble a slide tackle, thus dropping Tim back down the order and damaging his sprint car in the process. Whilst Alex was penalised and dropped down the order as a result, the chances of a win with so few laps was going to be very difficult indeed. Ryno would have to settle for a P2 finish in the feature race, but does leave Lernerville with the lead in the championship.
It was a disappointing finish with the race poised for a grandstand finish, only to be let down by a poorly executed move. Nevertheless we will move on, and look forward to the next race in the series, from Volusia Speedway Park.
