Mooresville, NC (October 7, 2013) - Heading into the weekend at Irwindale Speedway, Ryan Partridge was in control of the points lead en route to the 2013 Lucas Oil Late Model championship.
Heading in to practice on Thursday, it only took less than a lap for Partridge to determine the car was good for Saturday. Shutting it down, the No. 48 LoanMart Racing team did not get back on track until Saturday’s practice and qualifying sessions.
Saturday started off just the same, second fastest in practice and qualifying in third position. Heading to the trophy dash, Partridge finished second and secured the outside pole position for the feature.
Beginning the 50 lap feature race in second position, Partridge battled hard with Cole Custer throughout the green flag race. Side-by-side racing provided a thrilled battle for fans as the No. 48 raced hard for the win. As the white flag flew in the air, the battle intensified and contact between the two drivers sent Partridge spinning across the finish line. Recording a second place finish, that was more than enough to secure the 2013 Lucas Oil Late Model Championship for Ryan Partridge.
Adding that title to his growing list of accomplishment, Ryan Partridge has previous championships at Irwindale including the 2010 Super Truck Series and a win at the 2011 Toyota All-Star Showdown.
“This has been an unbelievable season for me and I couldn’t have done it without the team behind me,” Partridge said. “Everyone at LoanMart has been great to work with and we owe a huge thank you to them for sponsoring us this season. Steve Latina, Scott Appell, my family and girlfriend Lindsay – thank you for your support, you make this all possible.”
“Here at LoanMart we love all kinds of racing, and we’re big fans of Late Model Racing. We are lucky to have Ryan represent us in the Lucas Oil Late Model class at our home track of Irwindale. We knew he would be up front all year, and we couldn’t be more proud of him. This is our first championship as a race team and to have a class act like Ryan win it for us is only fitting,” LoanMart Marketing Director Colby Estes said.
