Championship Drive: Bryan Warfadmin
Behind the wheel of a racecar, Meridian, Idaho’s Bryan Warf is all but unstoppable. Notching six straight titles in the Mountain Dew Winged Sprint Cars, Meridian Speedway’s fastest class, plus one in the NASCAR Division I Whelen All-American Series Modifieds, Warf proved himself a threat to win every time he rolled onto the quarter-mile.
In 2019 Warf turned his attention to the non-winged Pepsi Crate Car ranks. Not only would this reacquaint him with a division he hadn’t run in nearly a decade, but also offered a four race off-shoot in which Warf would feel right at home: the Winged Pepsi Crate Car series.
Warf brought his considerable experience to bear in the division’s first race, the 35-lap Sean Miller Memorial. Warf then piloted his Dave’s Quick Lube, Allan Marsh Travel Center, Maxwell Plumbing, The Flores Group racer to a third and second place finish, outscoring the field by 19 in June’s Teleperformance Twin 25’s. With 37 points in hand Warf battled to the runner up spot to end July. But then mechanical problems crept into Warf’s white and orange number 91.
With a sputtering engine Warf soldiered through both features on the series’ final night. Though he scored the fewest points of the evening and watched second place point man Bob Massie score a victory, Warf coaxed just enough out of his machine to claim the 2019 Winged Pepsi Crate Car championship.
