(June 14, 2012) London, Ontario – Ryan Litt spent last weekend racing without a wing on some smaller mid-Michigan tracks. This Friday he’ll have the wing back on for a high-speed event in northwest Ohio.
Ryan and the T&T Promotions #42 team spent a rare weekend racing without a wing on the car, racing last Friday at Spartan Speedway, and Saturday at Springport Motor Speedway. They brought home a couple of top 5 finishes at the team’s home tracks. Ryan started 7th in the Spartan feature, and came home 4th, and improved to a runner-up finish at Springport the following night.
“I had a fun weekend without the wing,” says Ryan. “I feel like we never got 100% out of the car, but that’s the reason we were there – to try some new things. “(We) found some problems, so if we decide to do that again, we will be much better.
Next up for Ryan and the #42 team is Toledo Speedway’s “Fastest Short Track Show in the World”, featuring the Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper Super Sprints series, and Midwest Supermodified Association in an all-open wheel doubleheader on the high-banked Ohio track. Ryan has run well at Toledo before, and had a good run going there last year, until a tire problem interfered.
“Everyone knows Toledo is my favorite track,” says Ryan. “It’s close for us, so I have a lot of family and friends that come to watch. The track is one of the best around – smooth, wide, and fast. I want to qualify well and run strong. A win is what we always look for, but a top 3 is still nice. Hopefully we can find the handle on the car and take it to the front.”
THINKING OF JAY
Everyone involved with Ryan Litt Racing would like to send best wishes to Jason Blonde, who suffered a fractured pelvis in a crash at Lucas Oil Raceway Park last weekend. We can’t wait until we get to race against him again.
