INNISFIL, Ontario — There have been only two APC Auto Parts United Late Model Series events, with the same driver winning them both.
Brandon Watson is continuing to show why he’s one of the drivers to beat in Pro Late Model competition, as evident by winning in two different fashions. At Delaware Speedway, it was all about speed as he purely dominated. At Flamboro Speedway, it became a test of being able to hold on and race hard against those who were pitted against him, with certainly bumps traded along the way.
Ultimately, like many have grown used to across the province, the No. 9 finished the night in victory lane.
“It’s been a good start for us this year,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS. “We got the car working really good at Delaware, the car was really fast at Flamboro. We had a lot of work to do but we were able to get the car going pretty good for us. It’s been a good start for us, but it’s going to get harder and harder as we go through the season.
“Hopefully we can keep in the car in one piece, stay at the front of most of the races, have a chance to win ,and be at the top for the final standings.”
The next event for the tour takes place on Saturday, August 14 at Sunset Speedway. Watson is no stranger to victory lane in Innisfil, having visited plenty times previously, and not just in Pro Late Model competition.
“Hopefully we have another good run,” he commented. “We usually have a good car for Sunset. I like racing there. It’s always a fun, nice track with two-lane racing, so hopefully we can keep her rolling, stay out of trouble, and get the car in victory lane again.”
