HIGHLANDS, Texas (March 21, 2017) – Channin Tankersley has a new look in 2017.
Tankersley, who moved to Ohio last December for a new job, is teaming up with Kyle Turner Motorsports for approximately 20 races this season. That partnership begins this Saturday when the duo will compete at Battleground Speedway in Highlands, Texas, for the 10th annual Gulf Coast Nationals with the ASCS Gulf South Region.
“I raced a couple of races for him last year,” Tankersley said. “It’s pretty much a new partnership. He’s super laid back and gave me free reign to do it how I want. He gives us what we need and I couldn’t ask for anything more than that.”
Tankersley said he is flying home later this week to finish the race car in preparation to compete at his home track.
“I’m looking forward to it because I get to race and I get to see my family,” he said. “I haven’t been back home since around New Year’s.”
Tankersley is coming off a career-best season when he recorded his second ASCS Gulf South Region championship and five feature victories, including one at Battleground Speedway. He also finished second at the track during the only other ASCS Gulf South Region race at the bullring.
“Battleground Speedway is only a few minutes from my parent’s house so we’ve been there a lot throughout the years,” he said. “It’s a track I usually run well at so hopefully that trend continues with Kyle Turner Motorsports on Saturday. I think we can be a contender right out of the box.”
