INVERNESS, FL : Dean Lambros made a late race pass on Cameron Bolin to score the biggest win of his career in the Winter Nationals at Citrus County Speedway on Thursday.
Lambros, 13, from Montauk, New York, passed Bolin with five laps to go in the second of a Legends Young Lions doubleheader. From there, Lambros drove away to score the victory – the second of his career.
“This is incredible to be here in victory lane,” Lambros said in victory lane. “I can’t believe that we came all the way down here. It’s just amazing to be here. I can’t believe I’m missing school for this. It’s amazing. This is the biggest win I’ve come across all year.”
Lambros now hopes he can repeat his performance on the final day of the Winter Nationals on Friday before returning home to New York – and going back to school.
“Hopefully I can come back and get another win,” Lambros remarked. “I don’t know how the weather is going to play out and what the track temperature will be like, but we’ll have the right car. This is the perfect temperature for racing.”
Lambros predominantly races at Riverhead Raceway in his home state of New York. He has one prior Legends victory but considers Thursday’s win the biggest of his career to date.
The fourth and final round of the INEX Winter Natonals will commence on Friday afternoon around 12:30pm EST.
