Late Race Tangle Knocks Ryan Timms Out of KWS/NARC Feature Event

PETERSEN MEDIA: Turning October into an annual California swing the last few seasons, Ryan Timms headed to Bakersfield, CA on Saturday night to take on the KWS/NARC Series at The Kern County Dirt Track. Running inside the Top-10, a late race tangle ended Timms’ night early while he was running inside the Top-10.

“We had good speed all night long, it was just tough to pass in the feature event,” Ryan Timms said. “Unfortunately, a car spun in front of us, and we got into him and it ended our night.”

With 20 cars checked into the series’ penultimate event, Timms timed the CITGO/Hampel Oil/Mystic Lubricants backed No. 5T in fourth fastest in qualifying time trials.

With the car count, the series utilized a three-heat format and it put the 17-year old Oklahoma City, OK native on the front row of his heat race.

Settling into second when the heat race came to life, Timms was patient as he worked around the Kern County Dirt Track. Utilizing a late move, Timms powered into the lead and went on to pick up the win and make himself eligible for the Dash.

Finishing third in the Dash, Timms was set to go to battle from the third row for the 30-lap feature event. On a track that stayed narrow much of the night, Timms slipped back to seventh as the field settled in around the 1/3 mile oval.

Running inside the Top-10 as laps clicked off, a spinning car ahead of him left Timms with nowhere to go and the damage from the contact was enough to bring his night to an end on the 21st lap.

“It was a tough way to end our night,” Ryan Timms said. “We had some good car speed, and hopefully we can continue that this week in Stockton, CA before we switch gears to midget action.”
