Champion Racing Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Tyler Courtney who used a restart with seven laps remaining to pass leader Kevin Thomas Jr. and win a bittersweet Hoosier Hundred Thursday night, in the final running of the event at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/28/2019 -- Courtney kept pace with Thomas, following him for 92 straight laps until making the winning move on a restart that made all the difference, one that came with a bit of advice courtesy of a voice from above.
"My crew chief on the sprint car and midget, and my spotter tonight, told me on the open red that Jason McDougal had been making up time on restarts doing that same move," Courtney said. "He was lifting on restarts into one.
So, I knew that if I could just out brake him a little bit getting in and make sure I didn't blow past it, it would work. Luckily, it did. You get the open track, no lapped cars, nothing, I got to run as hard as I wanted to for the last eight laps and that's what I did. If it was going to blow, it was going to blow with me trying."
