Tyler Thompson Racing……
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…..
