Bollman Doubles Down In Summer Shootout

CONCORD, N.C. — Hitting the deadline at the checkered flag, Pro driver Jake Bollman raced his way into victory, going two-for-two to kick off the Cook Out Summer Shootout season at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Bollman quickly put some distance on his competitors, dialing up a three second lead. The true undercover battle took place further back in the field, as Jensen Jorgensen (who finished runner-up) and third place Brenden Ruzbarsky were the headline battle.

“This car is just so good,” Bollman said on his performance. “I came into Summer Shootout this season and said, ‘I’m gonna win all 10 races’… my confidence is up, I know I can do it.”

It was all in the details for Jorgensen as he strategically maneuvered around the field to solidify his spot behind Bollman, improving on yesterday’s third place finish to second, inching closer to No. 1 with eight rounds of racing remaining in the Summer Shootout season.

Bandit national points leader Wyatt Coffey, posted a jaw-dropping win in round two of Cook Out Summer Shootout.

The race was fierce from the outset as a caution on lap four produced a red flag, bunching up the field and putting pressure on leader Jack Smith to hold off the competition.

In the final four laps, a determined Coffey showed his dominance once again, closing in on Smith creating a social media moment with side-by-side action. Coffey’s ride was tuned to just the right frequency as he pulled away to secure part two of his double-header wins.

“I overdrove every corner at the end,” said Coffey, describing his perspective on the race’s final laps. “I was just trying to catch him [Smith]. I want to thank him for racing me clean.”

Delaney Gray finished third, while Camden Truett and Taegen Knowland rounded out the top five.
