Ruston Looking to Be First Female Winner of The World Crown
After Big Win at Lucas Oil Ruston Set for Crown
Oklahoma-native Kenzie Ruston moved east to North Carolina a few years back to further her racing program. After a successful tour in Legend Cars, she moved up to the Late Model world, looking to earn her keep on the race track. During the 2011 season, Ruston has been on fire, including becoming the first-ever female to win a Championship Racing Association (CRA) Super Late Model event when she went to victory lane at Lucas Oil Raceway Park (IN). Now, the young racer will enter the 28th Annual Rheem World Crown 300 Super Late Model race at Gresham Motorsports Park (GA) on Sunday, November 13th, looking to be the first female driver to wear the crown.
Ruston entered the CRA Super Late Model event earlier this year at the track, and is hoping to learn more during some testing to get up to speed for the World Crown.
"We struggled there a little bit in the CRA race there at Gresham," said Ruston.
"We are planning on testing to get ourselves better for the World Crown.
"The set-up for this year is crazy and it is going to be intense. I like to ride and save my car, but in this race we aren't going to be able to do that, so it is going to be a bit different for me."
Ruston's win in a CRA race earlier this year put her in the record books for that series. She is now looking to do the same at Gresham Motorsports Park in the World Crown.
"It would be huge to win," explained Ruston. "I guess it still hasn't really hit me being the first female to win a CRA race, so it is weird hearing that. To win a big race like the World Crown would be a big accomplishment."
