Inside Line Promotions – TULSA, Okla. (Nov. 23, 2021) – Frank Flud earned a whopping 35 feature triumphs during a strong 2021 season.
“It’s not what we’ve become accustomed to, but with new priorities shifting toward our development program we’ve been putting a lot of resources into building that,” he said. “A lot of our focus has been toward the development program to help the sport and prepare drivers to climb the ranks.”
Flud led the way with 10 Lucas Oil National Open Wheel 600 Series presented by Hi-Plains Building Division victories, including a division best seven in Winged ‘A’ Class as well as three in Stock Non-Wing. He now holds 60 career Winged ‘A’ Class wins and 52 Stock Non-Wing victories with the NOW600 Series.
Flud also recorded 10 Winged ‘A’ Class triumphs and eight wins in the Stock Non-Wing division at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. Both were division bests.
“We weren’t running for points with the NOW600 Series or at Port City Raceway so it’s a big confidence builder that we were able to lead the divisions in wins while missing multiple events as our focus is on our development program,” he said.
Other highlights included capturing a preliminary night as well as the finale during the Big Dance at U.S. 24 Speedway in Logansport, Ind.; earning three victories at Port City Raceway’s Pete Frazier Memorial; scoring a trio of preliminary night wins during the Show-Me Showdown at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex in Sweet Springs, Mo.; producing two second-place showings at the Engler Machine & Tool, Inc., Highbanks Hustle at Southern Illinois Raceway in Marion, Ill.; and recording fourth-place outings at the KKM Giveback Classic hosted by Port City Raceway and the Terry Sprague Memorial at Southern Illinois Raceway.
One of the most special weekends came during the Donnie Ray Crawford Memorial at Port City Raceway. Flud was victorious, but was also awarded with the Most Respected Driver Award, which was voted on by the racers, for the second straight year. He also garnered the inaugural Ray Crawford Award for the fastest time in hot laps and the Andy Hillenberg Ironman Challenge for completing the most laps during the marquee event.
“Being voted the Most Respected Driver for the second year in a row means a lot to me,” he said. “That event has always meant so much to me so it’s special to record the wins and receive some awards as well.”
