Rising to the challenge is what separates a top-notch driver from the rest of the pack. Whether it’s dominating a race, going on a winning streak or sealing a win with a late-race pass, drivers slowly rise to the top of the field and make a name for themselves.
For the first time, Speed51 is giving out an eSports Driver of the Month award for the most outstanding eSports driver over the course of the month. The winner of the Speed51 eSports Driver of the Month for the month of March is…
East Bridgewater, MA
Sim racing allows drivers to compete in multiple races in a short period without the time and costs that are associated with real-life racing. Massachusetts driver and Kulwicki Driver Development Program semifinalist Ryan Kuhn took full advantage of that, scoring three big wins in the month of March.
He kicked off the month with a Western Super Series win at Bristol Motor Speedway in the Alan Kulwicki Hooters throwback scheme, less than 48 hours after finding out he was a KDDP semifinalist. He ended the race with a polish victory lap to celebrate his accomplishment.
He then pulled the upset at Phoenix Raceway with the K&N cars in the Kulwicki Shootout, featuring past and present KDDP drivers. He outran none other than Ty Majeski in the closing stages to take the win.
Kuhn then ended March with a win against his fellow Seekonk Speedway racers in the #LetsGoRacing v250 at Oxford Plains Speedway with a bold strategy of not taking tires at all during the 250-lap affair.
For his winning ways across sim racing in multiple different forms of events, Ryan Kuhn has been named the first-ever eSports Driver of the Month.
