SEEKONK, Mass. — Ryan Kuhn continues to dominate the Seekonk Speedway iRacing Road Trip Tour presented by Souza Media. The Bridgewater, Massachusetts, rising Late Model and Pro Stock driver scored another virtual victory on Thursday night, this time at Myrtle Beach Speedway in the Barrington Automotive 100. It was Kuhn’s second straight Road Trip Tour win and it helped open his points lead even more with just two races remaining.
He was chased to the line by teammate Thomas Axsom, while former Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaw champion Mason Tessier scored his first podium of the season in third. Trent Goodrow was fourth and Chase Belcher fifth, each scoring their best finishes of the four races so far this season.
