ATTICA, Ohio (April 16, 2022) - The lights were on, but it was all “Sunshine” this weekend at the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing,” as Tyler Courtney, ace of the Clauson Marshall Racing/NOS Energy Drink No. 7BC, earned his second victory in as many days at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, officially sweeping the Core & Main Spring Nationals with another $6,000 triumph on Saturday evening, April 16. Blasting ahead from the outside-pole position, Sunshine led all 30 circuits of the weekend finale, surviving a pair of red flag stoppages, as well as numerous waves of heavy traffic, to secure the 11th Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of his young career.
Impressive enough, Courtney’s final margin of victory reached nearly four seconds, outrunning fellow All Star Circuit of Champions competitor and Angola, Indiana, native, Zeb Wise, to the final checkers, followed by Ohio hot shot, Cole Duncan, Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, and “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg.
“It was kinda tricky tonight. The wind changed directions on us a few times and it made it hard to not want to blow off the top of the race track. Determining where the lap cars were going to go made it tricky, too,” Courtney said in victory lane, who is chasing a second consecutive All Star title in 2022. “Jake and all the boys have been working their tails off all winter. To start our All Star title defense with two wins, and putting this NOS Energy Drink car where it belongs, is a really good feeling. Hopefully this is momentum we can carry into the summer.”
Wise, commencing his third season as an All Star full-timer, started from the pole position for the 30-lap contest, and although Courtney was able to snag the point at the drop of the green, the former Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race champion hung tough and did all that he could to keep the Clauson Marshall Racing entry within reach.
“I feel like the ‘7’ was better than us, especially through one and two,” Wise explained. “He could roll the top a lot better than I could. At times, it was hard to see getting into one so I just took my time getting through lapped traffic. When Tyler would get by a lapped car, the lapped car would switch lanes because they knew that was the faster way, so it made it tricky to get by them. Everyone on this car belongs back here on the podium. This feels really good after some disappointment last night.”
The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2022 campaign with a three-race swing through Central Pennsylvania on Thursday through Saturday, April 21-23. Series regulars and the infamous Pennsylvania Posse will collide in visits to Bloomsburg Fair Raceway, Williams Grove Speedway, and Port Royal Speedway in respective fashion headlined with Port Royal’s annual Keith Kauffman Classic awarding $10,000-to-win. The visits to Bloomsburg and Williams Grove will award $6,000 each.
