Hattiesburg, MS – June 8, 2018 – Two-time United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters National Champion, Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee raced from outside the second row into the www.RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane on Friday night at Hattiesburg Speedway to gather the $2000 top prize and collect her first series win of the 2018 season. She became the sixteenth different winner in the first twenty USCS contests during the current season.

Turpen’s team-mate and eleven-time series Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee grabbed the lead from K&N Filters Pole Position starter Tony Agin from Ft. Myers, Florida on lap two of the twenty-five lap main event. Gray then led the main event until lap sixteen when, Turpen shot past on the inside entering turn three to take the lead and never looked back on her way to victory lane.

Gray who discovered his right rear tire was flat in post-race inspection followed his team-mate to the finish line in the runner-up spot. The defending USCS National Champion and current points leader, Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas chased to lead duo to the finish line in the K&N Filters Podium Award third place.

Another Arkansas traveler, Marshall Skinner from Marion, Arkansas raced across the line in fourth place. The 2017 sprint car USCS Rookie of the Year driver, Brandon Taylor from Cumming, Georgia rounded out the top five. Taylor had collected the most passing points in the heat race qualifying events and then had to start sixth after Engler Machine and Tool First Heat winner Skinner drew a six in the K&N Filtes Pole Award dice roll.

USCS Sprint Speedweek Round #2 (Jackson Motor Speedway) winner, Shane Morgan from Biloxi, Mississippi, led the next group of drivers in sixth place. Joey Schmidt from nearby Ellisville, Mississippi followed in seventh place. Second year driver, Jake Knight from Georgetown, Mississippi was the eighth-place finisher with Tony Agin just behind him in ninth place. The 2012 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jeff Willingham from Ripley, Mississippi rounded out the top-ten.

In preliminary action, Jordon Mallett kicked off the action by winning the USCS Hoosier Tire Speed Dash. As previously mentioned, Marshall Skinner won the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat Race. Terry Gray collected the victory in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat race. Jake Knight advanced the most positions in the main event to garner the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award.

This past weekend was a historical weekend as the first ever traveling Limited Series anywhere on the west coast had their first two races as a series….the ISCS Limited Sprint Series uses the ASCS points format…..There were 23 driver for opening night of the series at Cottage Grove Speedway…..the series does group qualifying and that is also your heat with a 6 car invert…so on Friday night Tyler would go out in Group #1 and set fast time with a 12.048 his third quick time of his young career….he would go on to start 6th in the heat and win his heat race. In the main Tyler was moving up and on lap 10 took over the lead and was gone as he was weaving his way through traffic, then on lap 13 he came off turn four and was push toward the wall and got a flat tire and his chance for the win, he would come back to get an 11th on the night….On Saturday night the series traveled to the coast and Coos Bay Speedway where 22 cars showed up to compete in night #2 of the ISCS Series…Tyler would get the 5th fastest time in his qualifying group and start on the outside of row #1 and pick up a 2nd in his heat….In the main there was no one going to touch the winner Kyler Barraza, but Tyler would try and after 25 laps would come home with a 2nd place finish…..so overall a good weekend and as disappointed as Tyler was for not getting the win on Friday he knows he has the car to win this championship……up next is onto the Marvin Smith Memorial two-day 360 Sprint show at Cottage Grove where he will drive the #28 of Mark Herz Racing…..
