Looking to get over his hump of second place finishes at one of the biggest races of the year, the Johnny Key Classic, Steven Tiner’s night ended abruptly in his ‘B’ Main on Saturday night as contact sent him into the wall very early.
“It’s racing and it happens, but you hope you can at least get a lap in before it does,” Tiner said.
Forced to race his way into the 50-lap feature due to all those second place finishes, Tiner opened his night up by timing in the Stan Greenberg/Western Metal No.37 machine in fifth fastest, putting him in the second row of his “B” main.
On the start of the race, Jason Chisum and Tiner banged wheels, and the end result was Tiner getting violently into the turn four wall.
Though he was okay his night was over.
“It was an unfortunate event, especially with how this team has been the last couple of months, but luckily I’m okay, and we can get the car back together, and race another day.”
Steven and his Steven Tiner Racing team would like to thank BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, Elma Lanes, Larry Davis Farms, Wright Process Systems, Harvest Supply, Powder Coat-It, SRP, Wilwood, FSR, Dan Olson Race Products, Sander Engineering, Sweet Manufacturing, Good Ridge, Schoenfeld, Western Metal Company, and Roseville Precision for their support in 2013.
2013 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-34, Wins-0, Top 5’s-18, Top 10’s-22
ON TAP: Tiner will head back to Montana this weekend and compete with the ASCS Frontier Region this Friday and Saturday.
