Taylor Ferns to race at West Virginia, Ohio tracks Friday and Saturday

Taylor Ferns is scheduled to race a winged sprint car at I-77 Raceway Park and Ohio Valley Speedway this weekend. The Shelby Township resident is to drive the Jimmy's Towing/Indy Race Parts Maxim on Friday at I-77 Raceway Park in Ripley, West Virginia. The 18-year-old then plans to wrap up the weekend at Ohio Valley Speedway.
“After having last weekend off and rain the weekend before, I am pretty anxious to get back to the track this week,” Ferns told Ferns Racing PR. “It’s kind of like riding a bike and you pick it up pretty quickly when you climb back in the car after a couple of weeks break."
In her debut at I-77 Raceway Park last month, Ferns qualified second-fastest. In the main event, she inherited the top spot, after the two leaders were involved in an incident. Ferns led for a number of laps, before being passed by eventual winner Chris Myers with five laps remaining. She crossed the line second.
At Ohio Valley Speedway, Ferns took the checkered flag sixth on July 12. She was fourth-quickest in time trials and ran second in the second heat race at the three-eighths-mile.
Ferns has competed exclusively in 410-winged sprint cars this season, after opening the season with a couple of midget and U.S. Auto Club Silver Crown races. She has earned seven top-10 finishes, with three of those being top-five performances.
