WINSTON-SALEM, NC : Chase Purdy, the 2015 Bojangles’ Summer Shootout Young Lions champion, continued his hot streak this summer by winning the combined Young Lions/Semi-Pro annual race at Bowman Gray Stadium on Friday night.
Purdy, driving for Dennis Lambert, started the 20 lap feature on pole after the pill draw to determine the starting lineup. Connor Pyle, (Semi-Pro) driver started alongside Purdy on row 1.
After a lap 1 caution restart, Pyle took the lead from Purdy and looked like he was going to put a stop to the Purdy hot streak. The lead, however, was short-lived as Purdy retook the lead from Pyle two laps later.
Purdy would then set sail on the battle for second between Pyle, Scott Joy and John Holleman.
Chase Purdy would cruise home to the overall and Young Lions victory, while on the last corner of the last lap Holleman got into Joy and spun them both out of the Semi-Pro win. Pyle made a quick move underneath them both and got by to take the Semi-Pro win and finished 2nd in the overall.
