Monday night at Williams Grove Speedway saw Kevin J. Holley score his second straight flag-to-flag win in iRacing World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competition, besting Justin Thomas and 2016 ARCA Racing Series champion Chase Briscoe. Coming-off a similar win last week at Volusia Park Speedway, Holley has now led 60 consecutive laps in WoO Sprint Car sim racing.
The race was slowed by three cautions for 14 laps and finished under yellow after Alec R Cain and James Edens got together while battling for fifth spot on Lap 27. Cain had initially run second in the early laps of the race before yielding to Thomas and, later, Adam Elby. Briscoe steadily advanced from sixth at the start to join the battle Cain, Thomas and elby in the battle for second before tangling with cain and falling back to P11. But Briscoe mounted a fierce recovering drive and eventually passed Elby moments before the final caution to secure third place.
Cain came home fifth ahead of Austen Semmelmann, Danny Scovel and Chad Robinson with Edens dropping to ninth ahead of Derick Walker, the tenth and final sim racer on the lead lap.
The iRacing World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series concludes its initial nine week season next week at Eldora Speedway next week. Be sure and catch all the action on iRacing Live and DIRTVision.com on Monday, May 29 starting at 8:30 Eastern.
