Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions – OSWEGO, NY (September 16, 2019) – Just weeks after becoming the youngest winner of Oswego Speedway’s International Classic, 17-year old Tyler Thompson notched his first career winged Supermodified victory in the Midwest Supermodified Series Fall Brawl at Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indiana.
Not even a blown rear end in hot laps could slow Thompson, who won his qualifying heat race on Saturday before racing to a 3-second victory in the night’s 40-lap main event over Midwest Supermodified Series champion, Danny Shirey.
“I have to really thank the crew for this one,” said Thompson. “We weren’t sure if we were going to make it with the blown rear end in hot laps, but they worked their tails off and got it done. So, I knew I had to also. This has been an amazing couple weeks.”
Thompson started the 40-lap finale from the seventh position and methodically worked his way through the field, before settling in behind early leader and defending race winner, Mike McVetta.
McVetta appeared to be the car to beat early, but fueling issues would slow the No. 22 late in the going, with Thompson ready to strike.
Once in the lead, Thompson was never again pressured as he hurried away to his second big win in two weeks over Shirey, McVetta, AJ Lesiecki and Joe Gosek.
The next event for Thompson and Jason Simmons Racing will likely be Outlaw Weekend at Fulton Speedway on October 4-5 as the team looks to qualify for the Outlaw 200 with their DIRTcar 358-Modified.
