Taylor Ferns' strong run in winged sprint car race ended by accident

Taylor Ferns finished competed last weekend in the inaugural event for the Renegade Sprint Series at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. On Aug. 23, She timed in fourth-fastest of the 38 entries, and followed that up by finishing fourth in the fourth heat race to earn a spot in the dash, where she crossed the line fifth. She ran as high as third during the main event, and was running in the top five when contact with another car late in the race put her in the wall, ending her night.
The following night, the Shelby Township resident traveled north to Mercer Raceway Park in Western Pennsylvania for an event with the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions. She ended up 19th in the main event, after timing in 18th-fastest and finishing sixth in the third heat race.
“We had a really strong car at Atomic last weekend and it was unfortunate to get taken out how we did, because I think we had a top-three car,” Ferns told Ferns Racing PR. “I had people come up to me after the race and say that people knew we were there. It was tough not getting the finish we were hoping for, but we showed what we can do and hopefully we can carry a little of that into this weekend.”
