Newsmaker of the Week // Ryan Watt

Ryan Watt is a very good race car driver. He has improved year after year, grown together with a team, owned by Ron Roberts, that was unheralded before Watt started driving for it.

No one doubted the credentials of the 2016 Bridgeport Speedway Modified track champion at his home track. And after last Tuesday, the Super DIRT Series competitors won’t diminish his potential ever again.

That’s because Watt stunned the racing word when he won the Bridgeport SDS race in convincing style, earning his biggest payday by winning his most prestigious race.

He earned instant respect from any who doubted him, and in an impactful way, was the week’s biggest Newsmaker.
