Sweeping ‘The Border Battle’ at Jackson Motorplex and Huset’s Speedway over this past weekend, Ryan Timms is looking for another big pay day, and the coveted Championship Belt trophy, as the standout 15-year-old driver announced his intentions of competing in August’s Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge.
“We are thrilled to have a young talent like Ryan Timms come take part in the 2022 Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge Pres. by Country Builders and The Rayce Rudeen Foundation,” FRC Ent.’s Terry McCarl said. “With his age, Timms is limited where he can run the 410ci, but he has been impressive nonetheless, and we are excited to see what he can do against what is typically a really tough field of cars.”
Having a breakout season in 2021, Timms has leveled up in 2022 as he has made a name for himself on the Winged 410ci scene in 2022. This past weekend, Timms won a trio of 410ci events as he swept two nights at Jackson Motorplex and backed it up by winning at Huset’s Speedway.
“2022 has been a pretty great season for our team so far, and I am looking forward to getting into some big races this Summer,” Timms said. “My guys have been working really hard and I am eager to see how we stack up against some of the best at the Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge before we get to finally run some World of Outlaws races.”
Since moving to Sprint Cars full-time in 2021, Timms has picked up a total of 10 410ci wins to go along with 11 360ci wins.
Coming to see Timm’s and the rest of the field that is expected to be on hand compliments a great trip to Iowa in Mid-August with the Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge taking place just a mere 26 miles from Knoxville Raceway.
While the normal Sage Fruit Front Row Challenge rages on, this year’s event will offer a cool $21,000-to-win and $800-to-start for the Sage Fruit 410ci division, a $1,000-to-win King of the Hill Match Race presented by DeBerg Concrete, and a $1,000-to-win SeaFoam IMCA 305ci feature event.
