Final Tickets To Summit Super Series World Championships Earned By D1 And D9 Racers At Piedmont

Wednesday, 07 October 2015

The long wait is finally over for D1 and D9 competitors.  After battling Mother Nature for the last several weeks it was finally time to do battle at Piedmont for the remaining spots in the Summit Super Series World Championships. 

Amazingly, Division Director Josh Peake was able to make it out of his home in flooded Columbia South Carolina just to get to Piedmont.  Every single eligible racer was able to make it to Piedmont, on a Tuesday, in time for the race.  Everyone who came to race was prepared to leave right for Memphis to make the Summit World Finals this weekend.  The staff at Piedmont worked tirelessly to get the facility ready after 11” of rain the previous week.  The historic volume of water caused the track crew to have to scrape the entire track from top to bottom to ensure Summit Super Series competitors would have the best possible racing conditions.  Everyone pulled together to complete this very important event

On the Division 9 side of the race, Tyler Duff from Coastal Plains emerged with a victory in the Junior class when Seth Brooks representing Cherokee went red.  The Division 1 Junior final saw Kaylee Creech from Roxboro run dead on the 7.93 dial to take the win over Miranda Mitchell of Motor Mile.
