(June 16, 2011) London, Ontario – Ryan Litt and the #07 BS&B Radiator Sprint Car team had last weekend off, following a 4th place at Berlin Raceway on June 4. This weekend they’ll get back in action with races at Toledo Speedway on Friday, and Winchester Speedway on Sunday.
Many drivers and teams found trouble getting a grip at Berlin on the new spec tire for the Must See Racing series. Qualifying times were well off track-record pace, but were very close throughout the field. Ryan’s time of 13.332 seconds placed him 5th in the time trial session, but less than one tenth of a second off Jason Cox’s fast time.
“It was real greasy,” says Ryan. “With the harder (tire) compound all of us were fighting for grip.”
Ryan came home 4th in the feature at Berlin, and finds himself 3rd in the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Car Series standings heading into Sunday’s Winchester event. Friday at Toledo will mark his 1st start of the season with the Auto Value/Bumper Super Sprints tour. The two high-banked venues are amoung the fastest Ryan and his fellow Sprint Car competitors visit each season.
“Two of my favourite tracks!” says Ryan. “This weekend’s average speed is about 140 miles per hour.”
Ryan and the team have run well at both tracks in the past, especially at Toledo. Ryan was in contention for the win there last year, before settling for the runner-up spot behind Jason Blonde.
