Tanner Turns Luck Around With Dominating Peformance

New Egypt, NJ (June 5, 2010) – After a rough start to his 2010 season, Tim Tanner, Jr. of Doylestown, PA forgot all of his early season troubles as he pulled into New Egypt Speedway Victory Lane on Saturday night after an impressive Modified win on Downs Ford night. After starting the night eighth Tanner quickly charged to the front taking the lead on lap 7 and never relinquishing it.

“I can’t believe were here,” said an excited Tanner in Victory Lane. “After the blown motor earlier this season and our tough year last year this is awesome. I have to thank all my sponsors, my dad, and my grandparents. I wasn’t here Thursday because we wanted to run well tonight. We’ve spent a lot of money these past few weeks and we’re going to have a good motor put in the car in the next few weeks.”

Darren McCaughey grabbed the early lead from pole sitter Mike Barone on lap one and held the lead until lap seven when Tanner made his move. On lap six Tom Carberry spun in turn four bringing out the caution. Under caution Brian Truppi showed his displeasure with fellow driver Ron John Koczon which resulted in Truppi being black flagged from the event. On the following restart Tanner was battling for third and on lap six was battling Barone for second when Barone spun coming off of turn four collecting points title contenders Frank Cozze and Rick Laubach. On the lap seven restart Tanner grabbed the lead from McCaughey coming off of turn two. Points leader Billy Pauch looked to have a strong car charging into fifth position on lap 7, but never challenged for the lead finishing sixth. He and second place in points Bob Drayton battled for sixth position for several laps until Drayton pulled off on lap 24 with mechanical problems. This battle was taking place well behind Tanner who was pulling away from the field on his way to his first victory of the season.
