Ryan Norman’s 2019 racing season did not start out the way he had hoped. The team suffered a broken rod during the team’s first burnout of the season. It put Ryan and his team behind the 8 ball as he chased his 2nd Super 32 Championship at National Trail Raceway.
The team which consists of Ryan’s wife Morgan, his father Dale and his mother Beth, put the engine back together and were finally able to hit the track in July. In Ryan’s first race back, he took his dragster the to final round where he lost to the doorcar of John Kammeyer. The next day Ryan was once again in the final round. This time he turned on the win light by defeating Drew Elliott.
During the final points weekend, Ryan clinched his 2nd consecutive Super 32 Championship on the very final race of the year with a runner-up finish to heavy hitter Sean Graham. The team even had some fun that weekend as they decided to spray and run 4.40’s just for the heck of it.
“This year was very up and down. It didn’t start well at all, but we ended on a high note. We love coming to National Trail Raceway and competing with some of the best racers in Ohio,” said Ryan.
Next year Ryan and his team plan to attack the Super 32 Championship and do some bigger money bracket racing. He is also going to be bringing out the family Mustang in Pro as well. It will be a very busy season for the team.
Congratulations to Ryan Norman the 2019 Super 32 Champion.
