Clermont, Indiana –May 18, 2012-
An early-race restart gave Bobby Santos the opening he wanted to see and the Franklin, Massachusetts drivers never looked back en route to dominating Saturday night’s Inaugural “Hall of Fame Classic” Traxxas Silver Crown race at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.
In his first race aboard the #17 Weld Racing Magnum equipped Silver Crown car, Santos pulled away as the 100 laps wore on, posting an eventual winning margin of 7.512 seconds.
“The car was so good; it was a pretty easy drive. Usually, I push my car as hard as I can without losing the tires, and I’m really more comfortable coming from behind, but that’s just how good my car was tonight. I’m excited for all the races with this team, and to join with my teammates to run for a championship in the Midgets and with Bryan (Clauson) in this,” Santos said.
