6. Courtney Comes Alive At Fairbury

Oct 28, 2020

After 21st and 22nd place finishes in his two most recent USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget outings, Tyler Courtney simply wasn’t going to be stopped on July 18 at Jefferson County Speedway.  Literally, he was unable to stop as he drove by victory lane without the aid of brakes.

A late caution following a 35-lap green flag run around the 1/5-mile dirt oval, however, nearly thwarted the team’s resilient effort as he withstood a hailstorm of challenges from Buddy Kofoid, then a hard-charging Emerson Axsom, during the final laps to become the first multi-time victor of the Riverside Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Meats & Schmidt’s Sanitation.
