Tyler Thompson Continues Roll with Midwest Super Series Fall Brawl Victory at Lucas Oil Raceway Park

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.

Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions – OSWEGO, NY (September 9, 2019) – There is no rest in sight for Oswego Speedway International Classic champion Tyler Thompson and Jason Simmons Racing, as the team now prepares for the Midwest Supermodified Series Fall Brawl at Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis, IN on Saturday, September 14.

Thompson, the youngest winner in the 63-year history of Oswego Speedway’s International Classic at just 17 years of age, is excited to make his first trip to LORP, a speedway rich in open-wheel racing history.

“I have heard a lot of great things about Raceway Park,” said Thompson.  “We showed great speed last week in the Star Classic with the top wing and we hope to bring that to Indy this weekend.  We can’t wait to get out there.”

Less than a week after his Classic triumph at Oswego, Thompson set the bar in practice for the ISMA Supermodified Star Classic 125 in Epping, NH on September 7.

After qualifying sixth fastest in time trials, Thompson started the 125 from the 12th position and was riding in the top ten before a steering issue forced the No. 98T to pit lane, out of the action only a third of the way through the event.

Saturday’s event in Indianapolis will be the Midwest Supermodified Series finale for 2019, and Thompson’s first start with the series.

A stout field of competitors is expected this weekend in what will be the penultimate Supermodified event of the year, with only Thompson Speedway’s World Series of Racing left on the calendar.
