Kyle Plott, of Marietta, Ga., impressed everyone as he led the final 33 laps to win the Legends Big Money 100 and taking home the top prize of $25,000 on Tuesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Plott started from P9 in the Legends Big Money 100 A-Main and eventually took over the lead on lap 67. Bruton Smith has made this the most prestigious Legend Car event of the year and one of the largest in all of grassroots racing.
“I knew if I got out front I could hold them off,” said Plott. “We were real good this morning and everything just clicked today. It was a good race. Thanks to Charlotte for putting on these great events.”
David Ragan started from fifth and improved his position to finish second in the event. Ragan didn’t fall outside the top five all night, as he almost scored another win in the series that he loves.
It was pretty cool to see Ragan out there Tuesday night, as he was sporting his NSCS UPS paint scheme. Just last week Ragan was hoisted as the Brickyard 400 pole sitter, this week he returned to his roots as if all of that was just a dream.
The race was filled with cautions and red flags, but that set up for an exciting finish.
As Ragan now focuses on Pocono, these youngsters are already thinking about the next big event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
