Rusty Young starts 2016 DCRST season with a sweep

Recommended Posts



Kyle, TX - Defending Dwarf Car Racing Series of Texas champion Rusty Young (88) kicked off the new 2016 season just as he did most of 2015 by sweeping the weekend at Central Texas Speedway in the NAPA Know How 250 event.


An amazing 25 cars made it through the pit gate at CTS for the season opener on 3/8 d-shaped paved oval just south of Austin in Kyle, Texas setting the stage for what is promising to be the most competitive season in series history. The field made of series veterans and some newcomers faced the challenge of cool conditions from a front that made it's way to south central Texas late Friday evening bringing wind gusts of over 30 mph and setting race day conditions in the 50's.


Speed was not effected with only one of the entries not able to make the main event Young used a great starting position draw to quickly move into the top position after 2 start attempts and an early race caution. Quickly moving in to attempt to challenge Young was Gary Buchanan (99) in a new, fast moving machine and those to checked out from the field to finish 1-2. Ty Paxson (15), Dwain Groff (14) and Dillon Coyne (12) rounded out the top 5. Billy Groff (30), Ryan Stoy (20), Drew Semintal (37), Kevin Hubbard (3) and Chris Silvas (85) rounded out the top 10 in ultra competitive main event.


Lyle Bonnet (16), R. Young and Buchanan notched heat race wins earlier in the afternoon.


Next up for The Wild Side Tour is the first trip to the dirt track in Corpus Christi, TX South Texas Speedway for race event #2 on April 2nd. The series will race at STS again on April 16th then it is back to CTS April 23rd as the season moves forward.


DCRST will be announcing a new venture that the series will be involved in later this week as well.
