PA Posse Steals $12,000 Check from Uncle Chicken's Sippin' Whiskey Stockyard Stampede presented by Whiskey Myers

FORT WORTH, TX (April 13, 2024) – The Uncle Chicken's Sippin' Whiskey Stockyard Stampede presented by Whiskey Myers lived up to the hype on Saturday night as Kubota High Limit Racing debuted at Texas Motor Speedway.

With the 30-lap A-Main offering three different leaders and four lead changes, a packed house of fans witnessed an old-fashioned "Lone Star State" duel between second-row starters Tyler Courtney and Anthony Macri.

It started with a pair of Pennsylvania High Rollers on the front row with Jacob Allen's Shark Racing #1A and Brent Marks' Murray-Marks Motorsports #19 leading the field to the green flag. Allen controlled the opening seven circuits and then "Sunshine" came on the attack as lap traffic held up Allen.

Courtney's Clauson-Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink #7BC went to the point on Lap 9 and steadily controlled the pace until Dillsburg, PA native Anthony Macri stormed to life on the final restarts.

Macri slid by and led Lap 22, then Courtney took him back on Lap 23, only for Macri to again drive by on Lap 24 as the duo swapped the lead lap-after-lap and brought the Fort Worth, TX crowd to their feet with the win on the line.

The #39M held on for the remaining six laps and banked a $12,000 victory at the Texas Motor Speedway - earning a cowboy hat for his fourth win of the year, making Macri the winningest 410 Sprint Car driver in the country right now.

Macri is the fourth winner through five Kubota High Limit Racing events in 2024 and joins Rico Abreu (4), Kyle Larson (4), and Tyler Courtney (2) as the only multi-time winners with the young series.

For Courtney, the Indianapolis, IN native held on for P2, earning his fourth consecutive top-two finish as the CMR group extends their early-season lead over Brad Sweet in the chase for the Kubota High Limit Racing championship.

Speaking of Sweet, "The Big Cat" followed Macri and Courtney to claim his second podium of the season aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49.

Jacob Allen and James McFadden rounded out the top-five with Brent Marks, Rico Abreu, Zeb Wise, Corey Day, and Cory Eliason closing out the top-10.
