Race Report: Big 3 roars at Warrior Creek

April 27, 2019-Gray Court, SC-By Gray Sutherland

Jason Scruggs, Joseph Mintz, Jimmy Lindley earn multiple wins in Race #2 for the Series.

Not a cloud could be found in the sky this past Saturday as fans, drivers, and drive packed into Warrior Creek just outside Gray Court, SC for Race #2 of the Big 3 Series. The series last was out at Patriot and now had to deal with the unique challenges of Warrior Creek. It was a beautifully crafted day as 254 entries filed through first for an all kart track roll in and then split off to their respective pit areas for 2 rounds of practice, then 1 of qualifying, and lastly 23 main events on the card. Some quick highlights before we break it down by class with winners: Jason Scruggs, Joseph Mintz, and Jimmy Lindley would win 2 main events each as Mintz also grabbed back to back Stock Medium wins in the Big 3. So far Predator 425 belongs to Brandon Henson as he has both of those wins at Patriot and Warrior Creek. Tyler Bowie and Michael Bumgarner found their way back to victory lane by winning Junior 3 for Bumgarner and Junior 2 for Bowie. It was also a good day for some Foothills folks as Ellie McAbee set fastest time in Junior Sportsman Champ and followed it up with a 2nd place finish behind Bryce Moore. Lance Tomberlin and Bradley Gillespie went 1-2 respectively in Pro Predator with Chase and Blake Rathbone going 5th and 6th. Next race up for the Big 3 Challenge Series is back at Patriot in Blacksburg, SC on May 11, 2019.
