OCALA, Fla. – Chris Windom recorded the fastest lap in Wednesday night’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series practice session at Bubba Raceway Park ahead of three-straight nights of racing for the series at the three-eighths-mile dirt track as part of Winter Dirt Games XII.
Windom notched the only sub-14 second lap of the night at 13.984 seconds in his Hayward Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink – B&H Contractors – AMSOIL/DRC/Claxton Mopar. It was the fastest lap among the 44 cars on the grounds, 42 of which took time.
It was the second consecutive year the USAC career Triple Crown champion set the fastest time on practice night. Kevin Thomas Jr. also turned the fastest lap in USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget practice at Bubba Raceway Park for the second year in a row last Thursday night.
Brady Bacon was second overall at 14.040 seconds followed by Justin Grant at 14.108 seconds, Kevin Thomas Jr. at 14.245 seconds and Buddy Kofoid at 14.248 seconds.
The top-four of Windom, Bacon, Grant and Thomas have all previously won USAC National Sprint Car features during Winter Dirt Games. Kofoid was victorious during last Saturday’s USAC National Midget opener at the track.
Winter Dirt Games XII begins the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season Feb. 11-13 at Bubba Raceway Park.
