Joshua Biddle returns with a bang on the Nuff World Iracing Tuesday Shootout Series
28 drivers showed for the Nuff World Iracing Tuesday Shootout Series at Toyota Motor Speedway at Irwindale. 8 cautions for a total of 40 laps and a whopping 22 lead changes. Justus Williams sat on the pole
with a 18.624 qualifying lap.
Things got hot and heavy early in this one with everyone jockeying for position on this small track. Dylan Lee and Jacob Vanada got together on lap 3 to bring out the first caution of the night. This mess would
put Dylan Lee out of the race with too much damage to continue. Some drivers took this opportunity to make a few changes to their cars under caution and some for fuel who forgot to fill up prior to race time.
There was some great side by side and three wide racing for about 10 laps when we went back to the green. On lap 20 pole sitter Justus Williams would tangle with Tyler Worley to bring out the second caution of the
night while running three wide out of turn two. Several other drivers would also catch some damage during this one and continue on. However for pole sitter Justus Williams would not be one of those as he pulled
behind the wall with severe damage.
The biggest mess of the night would come on lap 79 when Aaron Newport, Stephen Knight, and Whitney Bryant would tangle going into turn 4 while running three wide in the top 3 positions. All three would spin and collect
several other drivers. Douglas Sargent would catch some damage here but not enough to stop his night. Sargent would inherit the lead and Joshua Biddle who was quiet all night to this point would get the lucky dog and
finally get back on the lead lap after being several laps down during the race. Several Nuffer pleaded with Douglas Sargent to pit in order to get a waive around under the caution but he did not. This would prove to be
his downfall tonight.
Once the green flag flew again Douglas Sargent leading and Joshua Biddle in second behind the field as the lucky dog we would go the last 75 laps under green. Joshua Biddle with fresh tires moved through the field of slower
cars to take the lead from Sargent with 57 to go and never looked back. Sargent on 70+ lap tires could not hold off Biddle who cruised on to the win with a 9 second lead on second place Douglas Sargent. Pit strategy paid
off for Biddle but not for Sargent who was sure there would be another caution.
