PENSACOLA, Fla. — Ryan Litt had more than warmer weather to be excited about after traveling nearly 20 hours from his native Canada to garner his first career TRUFUEL Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series victory Friday night at 5 Flags Speedway.
Litt passed Jacob Wilson with only five laps remaining and earned $3,000. It was night one of the Royal Oak Southern Shootout and kicked off the 2013 MSRXSS schedule.
Litt, who had to transfer from the B Main, explained how he patiently waited for the break he needed on lap 25.
“He (Wilson) took off from me at the start. I was just trying to bide my time and save my equipment. I knew the lapped cars were gonna be difficult because the dirty air is bad here,” explained Litt. “He wiggled in three and four and it killed his momentum and I had some pretty good steam going so I just put it on the bottom and it stuck for me and that was pretty much it.”
Litt acknowledged that this win against what many argue is one of the most competitive fields of drivers in recent pavement winged sprint car history, was by far the biggest win of his career.
“This is the biggest win of my career,” he said. “Just by the field of cars and drivers here. Must See is definitely number one for the pavement sprint car stuff.”
