Tyler Thompson Impresses in World Finals Debut with Super DIRTcar Series

Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions – OSWEGO, NY (November 9, 2019) – A total of 38 Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds took the green flag in the Friday portion of the World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, with 18-year old Tyler Thompson starting from the 16th row in his brand-new Bicknell Chassis.

With only 40-laps to work, Thompson dropped the hammer right away, slicing through the field with the best of the best in DIRTcar Modified racing.

When all was said and done, Thompson rallied from 31st on the starting grid to 12th in the final order, directly on the heels of Super DIRTcar Series veterans Matt Sheppard and Peter Britten.

“We’re really happy with the performance of the new Bicknell,” said Thompson.  “It took some time to adjust and we’re still learning, but we made great gains tonight come feature time.  Big thanks to the crew and everyone for their hard work, that was a lot of fun racing with those guys tonight in front of that kind of crowd.”

As the checkered flag flew on Friday night, 32 Big Block Modifieds crossed the finish line on the lead lap.  Jimmy Phelps would go on to secure his first Super DIRTcar Series win of the season, also in a Bicknell Chassis, ahead of Erick Rudolph and Larry Wight.

The final night of action at this year’s World Finals will take the green flag this afternoon at 3:45 p.m.
