Josh Richards: “We work way harder in the off-season.”
Last year, Josh Richards claimed the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series title. The year before, he also claimed the World of Outlaws Late Model Series title. Dual titles, which he earned with two different teams.
In 2017, he placed a bow on his season when he won the final race of the year, on the debut throwback weekend. But, the move he made to win that race has had me confused for the last 3 months.
It’s not uncommon for a racer to dive 5 feet or even 10 feet deeper into the corner to try and make something work. That’s racing across the board. But, what Josh Richards did at Portsmouth Raceway Park blew my mind. He literally drove 50 feet deeper into the corner, into a line that wasn’t run by anyone else all weekend.
I’m still stuck on something from last year. In the last race, you drove 50 feet deeper into turn 1 than anyone else did all weekend. So, I’m confused by what you did and what I saw.
