After a rainout in Round 8, Bryson Ruff returned to Charlotte Motor Speedway (NC) for the final two rounds of the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout Series in his No. 24 Bojangles’/ Barringer Construction/ Your Pie/ Victory Lane Indoor Karting / Wild Bill Fitness machine on Monday and Tuesday, July 30th & 31st.
Monday night’s racing saw Ruff qualify 6th and start the race in 5th, after the invert. The young driver worked his way into the top-5, but a caution-filled race with several restarts hindered his progress. He earned a 6th-place finish.
The team returned to the track Tuesday night for Championship night with rain pouring down. Ruff, who is known to be strong in wet racing conditions, qualified 2nd for the final race of the Series. After the invert, he again started 5th, and the rain had subsided. The race only saw a few cautions, but track conditions were a struggle with the weather changing and a tire choice having to be made. Ruff crossed the stripe in 6th place, earning himself a 2nd place finish in the overall Series point standings.
