Starting Saturday night’s $4,000-to-win World Short Track Championship in 12th, Drake was an early retiree from the 30-lapper on lap 22 after his right-rear tire began losing traction. He jumped out to an early race lead in the invitational feature before a broken transmission brought an immediate end to his weekend.
