Eldon, MO. (05/29/2021) Ryan Timms out of Oklahoma City, OK. breaks the record books on night one at Lake Ozark Speedway, and becomes the youngest driver to ever win a Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League event at 14 Years, 9 months, and 24 days old. Tyler Thomas Previously held the record at 15 years, 3 months, and 18 days.
Emerson Axsom and Chance Crum sat side-by-side on the front row to lead the 22-car field to the green flag for the 30-lap main event. Brenham Crouch lined up third and took the lead on lap one, while Ryan Timms made his way into the third position. As the leaders got into lapped traffic, Timms got caught up with the No. 44 of Roark which caused the yellow flag to wave.
After a few drawn out yellows the drivers went back to green with a little over halfway to go. Crouch still presumed the lead on the restarts, but Timms overcame the rough track and threw a slide job for the top position. Timms continued on to capture his first ever Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League Victory win, and CBIndustries first team win of 2021.
Brenham Crouch brought his KKM No. 97 home second, teammate Bryant Wiedeman finished 3rd, Jake Neuman came home fourth and Jade Avedisian came home fifth.
“I took the lead twice and then we happened to have yellows so that kind of sucked but being able to run off with the lead. I didn’t know how many laps there were, I was just hoping to see the checkered anytime.” Ryan Timms
