By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR
SARVER, Pa. - June 26, 2015 - With two of the sport's top drivers behind him and a steady line of lapped traffic ahead of him, Chase Junghans expected his lead in Friday's Firecracker 100 preliminary feature at Lernerville Speedway to be shrinking.
Instead, signals from a crew member during the second half of the 30-lap race told the second-year World of Outlaws Late Model Series driver that he was pulling away from former WoO LMS champion Scott Bloomquist and current series points leader Shane Clanton.
Ross Robinson Enjoys Learning Experience During World of Outlaws Late Model Series Northern Trek
Delaware Driver Makes All Five A-Mains Between WoO LMS Great Northern Tour & Lernerville Speedway's Firecracker 100 Weekend
By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR
The final two weeks of June were quite busy for Georgetown, Del., driver Ross Robinson. The 25-year-old racer competed at four new tracks while traveling more than 1,500 miles to New York, across the Canadian border into Ontario and back south to Pennsylvania.
Robinson followed the World of Outlaws Late Model Series for every race on the national tour's northern excursion June 18-27, competing in three events during the WoO LMS Great Northern Tour through New York and Ontario before wrapping up the trip with the ninth annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa.
Robinson acquitted himself well during his time with the WoO LMS, making the A-Main in all of the trip's five events. As he prepared to compete during the final night of the Firecracker 100 weekend on June 27 - a program that was eventually postponed to Sept. 5 due to heavy rain - Robinson was happy with his performance but even more pleased with all he had learned during his time on the tour.
