December 5, 2016

One year after capturing the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod National Championship in the USRA Weekly Racing Series, Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kan., returned in 2016 to etch his name on champion’s trophy in the Iron Man Series for Out-Pace USRA B-Mods.

The 17-year-old racked up four victories in three states, including wins at the Randolph County Speedway in Moberly, Mo., on April 23; Mason City (Iowa) Motor Speedway on June 29; Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa, on Aug. 25; and Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., on Sept. 3.

But it wasn’t until Sept. 22 that Bryant wrestled the points lead away from Decorah, Iowa’s Cole Denner, who held the top spot since late summer.

Bryant also recorded 11 top-five and 16 top-ten finishes in his 22 starts, using his best 18 finishes toward his Iron Man Series points total and took home more than $7,000 in winnings during the campaign.

Although he now has two national titles to his credit, Bryant is only in fourth year racing full-sized race cars. He began racing go-karts when he was nine and his first B-Mod win came in August of 2013.

Behind Bryant and Denner in the final rundown was another Decorah driver, Dan Hovden, who picked up three wins en route to his third-place finish. Jared Timmerman was fourth and Mike Tanner finished fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were Dustin Kruse, Kyle Anderson, Trevor Fecht, Kaleb Lienhard and Alex Zwanziger.

More paychecks will wind up in Bryant’s pocket when the United States Racing Association celebrates the 2016 season during the USRA Awards Banquet on Jan. 28 at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City.

Bryant will collect $2,500 and be officially recognized as the 2016 Out-Pace USRA B-Mod Iron Man Series champion.

He'll also garnered $700 for his fifth-place finish in the USRA Weekly Racing Series national points.

A total of 318 different drivers competed in the 2016 Iron Man Series campaign which featured 29 race nights for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods at 16 different dirt ovals in four states.
