“My goal was to drive conservatively and increase my points gap,” said Piplic. “I did what I had to do to win the championship. With two laps to go, I ran into some issues, but I held on to secure that championship. I’m super excited to win the title. I wish I had finished on the podium, but my goal was to secure the championship.”
In the Pro race, Piplic overcame mechanical issues to finish fourth. He is now just 12 points out of the lead in the championship with just one race left.
“I made a small error in the first turn, drove up onto two wheels, saved it and came out fourth,” said Piplic. “I had some mechanical issues toward the end of the race, but I was able to cruise to the finish and hold onto some points.”
