SCOTIA SPEEDWORLD: It was an emotional win for Lantz’s Kirk Ryan on Aug 25 in the Affordable Fuels & Metro Home Heating Sportsman feature during CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series action on TOURSEC Twin 50’s night at Scotia Speedworld.

The emotion of the win was shown with several big burnouts done following the win. One of Ryan’s crew members, Chris “Kipper” McCulloch passed away recently, and the win was dedicated to his memory.

Ryan, driving the no. 54 hot rod, also earned a heat race win.
