Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Tyler Courtney for his recent win at the USAC National Sprint Car Series feature at Eldora Speedway.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/13/2019 -- Courtney, the defending USAC national sprint car champion, threw a massive turn-one slide job on early leader Kevin Thomas Jr. to take command of the race on the seventh round and never looked back.
Following a lap-10 yellow for a slowing Robert Ballou, the Indiana native drove out to a whopping 8.704-second lead over the final 20 green-flag laps, cruising to the checkered flag over C.J. Leary in the end.
Courtney's victory was his first series win of the year, and he becomes the fifth different winner in five completed USAC national sprint car features so far.
"Any time you can win here (at Eldora), it's special," said Courtney in victory lane. "We got behind the 8-ball a bit there with starting seventh, but I knew I just had to get to the front as early as I could, and I was fortunate to have a really good piece that I could do that with.
