LYNCH MAKES LEGEND SERIES DEBUT IN VEGAS
Las Vegas, Nv. (Aug. 25th, 2019) - In an unexpected turn of events, INEX Driver, Chloe Lynch made her U.S. Legend Cars International and INEX Legend Series debut in front of a shocked and excited crowed. As the series came onto the track to start the evenings racing, it was announced that the number 50 was in fact, Bandolero Series points leader, Chloe Lynch, and the crowed went wild with Cheers in the stands of the short track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
"We didn't plan on this at all, we were set to just practice in the legend, but we felt, what the heck, let's do it," stated Brad Lynch. "She brought it home in one piece and ran every lap, I couldn't be more proud!"
Chloe held her lines and moved up and over for the leaders, and that is a part of learning as well. To go from, well basically a high powered lawn mower engine, to a 1000cc engine with a manual transmission is enough of a learning curve, yet to have more experience being a front runner, the calmness of this Rookie in traffic, showed one more sign she is ready to move up to faster and heavier cars.
The Bandolero Feature was one of the cleanest run this year. "I could pass someone by taking them out real easy, but I don't race like that," commented Chloe, who has held that sentiment since day one of her 2 year career.
After starting in the second row, Chloe held back a little, as the night previous the two front cars get together and she was able to pass and make a charge to the lead and hold it the entire feature, bringing home a win for her and the team. So with some caution she held back but found herself on the rear bumper of the 35 car. With many great runs off of turn four, Chloe held a clean line as the 35 car had some pretty clean and simply awesome moves to keep her held back, crossing the line in 4th at the Checkers, marking the first non podium finish this year.
