Ryan Heavner Racing unloaded in Aynor, SC last week. Low Country Kartway hosted the GOAT Series event during Mothers Day Weekend.
The team entered three divisions for the kart racing event. In the opening class, Heavner qualified 4th of 30 machines. In the end, the #7 picked up the feature win following the 15 lap main event. It’s the first win of the 2021 season.
“It was a much needed for the RHR team as we have been coming up short this season,” the team commented.
The team rolled off 3rd in the Super Heavy Warm-Up division. As the green dropped, Heavner took over 2nd. The leader slid up, opened the inside and Heavner filled the hole to take over the race lead. However, the #7 only returned the favor in the laps off turn four. Heavner ran side by side to the finish line, coming up just shy with a 2nd place run.
Heavner started 2nd in the Super Heavy Pro division. When the green dropped, the North carolina driver held 2nd as the top 2 broke away from the field. The team was in contention to leave the track with double victories.
With three to go, the leader bobbled into turn one. Heavner filled the inside and ran side by side for the win. The #7 machine checked up to keep the driver to his outside. The kart behind drove into the back of Heavner, climbing onto the left rear. The #7 lost momentum as the field went by. Heavner held on to finish 7th.
This week, the team is heading to Triple T Raceway for the next WKA Race in St. Pauls, SC.
