Tyler Courtney wins by six seconds for $6,000 All Star/IRA score at Wilmot Raceway

WILMOT, Wis. (May 13, 2023) - Two-time and defending All Star champion, Tyler Courtney, made it look easy on Saturday night at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, cruising home by a margin of six seconds to score round one of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and IRA Outlaw Sprint Series challenge. The triumph, a $6,000 occasion for the Indianapolis, Indiana, native, was accomplished from the outside of row one, forced to outduel Friday night Jacksonville Speedway winner Hunter Schuerenberg.

Courtney, now a 19-time winner with “America’s Series” with two occurring at Wilmot Raceway, took command officially on lap ten, scooting by “Hunter Percent” in turns one and two after a drag race down the front straightaway. From that point forward, it was the Tyler Courtney show, maneuvering through heavy traffic with ease before stretching his advantage to the six second mark; the 30-lap program went non-stop.
Chris Windom, who raced by Schuerenberg for the runner-up spot on lap 12, finished second for the second time in as many tries, followed by Schuerenberg, Scotty Thiel, and Tim Shaffer.

“I’ve lost a lot of races in lapped traffic, so I wanted to make sure I was able to pick them up and put them down here tonight,” Tyler Courtney said. “I felt our car was really good the last time we were here, but I think our car was even better here tonight. We were in a bad spot after qualifying, but my guys never gave up on me. It’s a long season, but we’ve been on the right pace to contend for a third consecutive championship.”

“I’m happy with two seconds on the weekend, but we want that first All Star win,” Windom expressed. “A little frustrated, but in all, happy with our results. You have to be on your game all thirty laps or you’re going to be second, especially with a guy like Tyler [Courtney]. You could race anywhere tonight. Tyler was just a little better than me getting through the slower cars.”

ONE DECK:The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2023 campaign with a tripleheader through the Empire State, set to invade Outlaw Speedway, Fonda Speedway, and Weedsport Speedway on Friday through Sunday, May 19-21. A full New York slate equals big money for “America’s Series,” as each night will offer an increased purse with $8,000 up for grabs on Friday, $10,000 on Saturday, and $8,000 again on Sunday.
