Late Race Contact Ends a Solid Run at Kern County Raceway

Mooresville, NC (May 21, 2013) -┬áNothing beats Saturday night racing at your local short track! That’s just what Ryan Partridge and the PPL Motorsports team say each week, this past weekend they journeyed to nearby Kern County Raceway in Bakersfield, CA for their grand opening race festivities.

The 20 car field took to the track after having little time to practice, starting in eighth Ryan struggled to find the groove on the new track. “It was a tough track to pass on,” Partridge said post race. “I like a challenge, I am not afraid of a challenge and this track was a challenge for us.”

Working his way up to fourth, the No. 48 was poised for a charge to the front in the remaining laps. As the 50 lap race came to a close, Ryan was in the front of the pack and battling to get to the lead. Contact with a lap car took him out on Lap 47 with a cut right valve stem, just three laps shy of the checkered flag.

This weekend Partridge returns to Irwindale Event Center (IEC) running the No. 48 Super Truck and looking for redemption after his last run that resulted in a fuel line issue. “We’re looking to finish where we left off at Irwindale, running strong and battling for the win!”
