CALHAN, Colo. (Sept. 13, 2017) –
The teenager scored his third straight 305ci winged sprint victory last Saturday at El Paso County Raceway, giving him seven trips to Victory Lane this season.
Taylor opened the night by driving from third to a heat race win before he rolled off fourth in the main event.
“There were a pair of rookies on the front row and at the start I kind of hung back not knowing what they might do,” he said. “I watched them and saw a hole open to the inside so I passed both and it was home free home after that.”
The win was another check mark on a banner season for Taylor, who continues to lead the Blood Sweat and Tears and Colorado Alliance Tour championship standings.
“I think we have a couple more sprint car races other than a 360ci race we are looking at,” he said. “If I do well I could lock up both championships. I’ve never won a championship in the sprint car. I’m very happy and content where we are right now with this team.”
Taylor will take that comfort and momentum into this weekend when he will pilot Todd Henry’s midget with the Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association on Saturday at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo. He is currently ranked fourth in the RMMRA standings.
“I got a win in the midget this year,” he said. “That’s a vast improvement. I’ve learned so much racing with Todd this year.”
