Leitz sweeps Richmond!

Nick Leitz came into tonights race leading the points and looking at putting an exclamation point on the already stellar regular season he’s been having. Last time at Richmond, a last lap crash allowed him to sneak by to grab his first win of the season, setting the tone for 2017. This time, he’d start 9th and start working his way up. Brenden Queen dominated the early going, but once pit stops put him to the back, it was the Josh Kotten show. But with his strategy, it put Leitz up to the top of the score board with 21 to go. With some heavy hitters coming from the back, including teammate Josef Miele and then Josh Kotten on fresh tires, he was looking at a fight. A 1 lap dash would come to pass, and Gabe Wood with Charlie Ryan made their presence felt attempting to dethrone Leitz. But he’d hold off Miele, and Ryan would find himself in the wall. Leitz officially sweeps the seasons races at Richmond!
