Nick Ledson Set to Chase Third Ontario Legends Series Championship

Last season, Nick Ledson didn’t start off the year the way he wanted, highlighted by a black flag at Sunset Speedway.

“We got blacked for rough driving – first time in 10 years that I’ve been blackflagged so we weren’t happy about that one,” he commented. “That made us work even harder for the rest of the year.”

From there on, Ledson dominated, winning the rest of the events on the schedule to enter the final night tied for the points lead. He would then have another great night, giving him his second career Ontario Legend Series Championship.

While he has had success in Ontario, Ledson has also gone across the border, running some races in the United States. He sees the biggest difference is the US legends drivers run multiple times a week, whereas Ontario only races once a week.

“You have guys that are racing on Wednesday nights, Thursday nights, Friday nights and Saturday nights, Sunday nights, and sometimes other days during the week,” he commented. “They’re racing four times a week and you see at the end of the year in national points where I have 20 races done, and the guys at the front have 80 races in a season.”

Despite the lack of experience compared to his competitors, he doesn’t see it as a disdvantage.

“I like seeing how we can show up at tracks down there and run up front against guys where that’s permanently their office five times a week,” he sahred. “That shows we have a good team when we can run really well down there. It’s easier when you can show up and people aren’t hovering your stuff and asking what you’re doing. You can kind of just six back and focus on what you need to do, and run up front.”

Ledson will return to the Ontario Legends Series in 2015, set to chase after a third championship. Though beyond that, there are possibilities to move into a different vehicle.

“Our plan is just to run Legends cars till maybe I can a ride with a team somewhere, and if it comes down to it, we’re just going to stay in it as long as we can,” he commented.

There’s also the possibility of expanding beyond the ovals, and trying some road course racing.

We want to try road courses,” Ledson commented. “You got the Summer Shootout Series. They run one road course race down in Charlotte, and we were looking at the Grand Bend Speedway road course race. I tried to get my dad to take us down to VIR in December to run the nationals there, but it didn’t work out. I don’t know. We’re keeping our options open.”
