Derek Kraus wins rain-delayed Twin 100

SOUTH BOSTON, Virginia (WSAW) -- Derek Kraus is back to winning races. The 17-year-old took the checkered flag in the Twin 100.

This is Kraus' second victory of the K&N Pro Series East series this season.

“It was a really good day overall,” Kraus said via “Today was. Yesterday we were pretty good, too, but we ran out of brakes early and kind of had to ride around and manage your day, which we did for those first 100 laps. But these second 100 laps, we got the first 20 laps in and I knew we were pretty good. Really happy with my Bill McAnally crew.”

Kraus took over the lead at the halfway point and never looked back. He also takes over the K&N Pro Series points lead.

Kraus now has seven career wins in the K&N Pro Series.

The next K&N Pro Series East event will take place on June 1 at Memphis International Raceway.
