Champion Racing Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Tyler Courtney for his win in the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series last Friday night at Bloomington Speedway.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2019 -- Courtney, the runaway series point leader who is sponsored by Champion racing Oil, took command of the 30-lap feature when pole sitter and race-long leader Justin Grant lost a right-rear tire on the 20th revolution of the high-banked, quarter-mile oval.
From there, the driver nicknamed 'Sunshine' was lights out, leading the final 11 laps to the 10th USAC national midget victory of his career and his fifth win in 10 races so far this season.
"This place gets really technical. It gets slick up to a big curb. If you hit it too hard, you're throwing the nose. You take the chance of bouncing over it and you throw your whole race away. So, you have to kind of ease your way into it. … I just knew if I could stay smooth on it, we would be alright. I felt we had good enough speed to maintain up there, and we proved it in those final laps."
