Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider- Driver Exclusive. VISALIA, Calif. (July 22, 2019) – > Cash Lovenburg won the biggest race of his career Saturday night at Deming Speedway.
When he crossed the line, Cash Lovenburg became the fourth different Jr Sprint Champion in the history of the Clay Cup Nationals.
Saturday night was his first return to victory lane since May 31. It also marked the fifth overall win of 2019, but most notably, it was his very first National Title.
The Lovenburg’s weren’t even committed to attending the Pacific Northwest’s crown jewel event up to a week and half before it began. Finally, the Monday before the event was scheduled to start, it was announced on the Lovenburg Racing Facebook page, that the official decision was made. Cash and Ty Lovenburg made up two of the final entrants of the Jr Sprint field.
When they arrived at Deming Speedway the vibe was positive from the moment they walked through the gates.
“The boys are fired up and ready to go,” said Brandon Lovenburg. “The only thing that can stop them at this point is the rain.”
Weather forced a cancellation of the Thursday night portion of the weekend after a stout start for Cash winning his Thursday night heat race.
However no amount of rain would derail the momentum of Cash Lovenburg.
Friday night began even better for Lovenburg. He qualified 2nd quick out of the field and landed the 4th place starting position in the heat. His first heat race became a clear indication of what he was ready to do over the weekend. He came from 4th to 1st convincingly to take the win.
With full invert format in full effect on prelim nights; Cash started Friday nights main event from the 12th position. He went on to put in an unforgettable charge. He was lights out Friday night, a man on a mission. Cash charged from 12th all the way to fourth, passing eight cars, and becoming the top point earner up to that point of the weekend. Going into Saturday’s finale Cash had seized the momentum.
More than just a mental upper-hand Cash Lovenburg came into the Clay Cup finale tied atop the standings. With main event lineups determined strait-up by points, Cash was set to start the Jr Sprint Main Event from the outside of the front row.
The time for chatter was over, qualifying was complete, and the next time on track was for all the marbles.. Could Cash get it done?
He answered that question resoundingly.
The weight of this race loomed large as the Jr Sprint drivers were introduced to the massive crowd on hand. It was evident that a national title was on the line.
However, Cash Lovenburg was not going to be denied this time.
The race took off and Cash found himself in familiar territory at the front. He held his foot on the floor and kept the field at bay, even turning the fastest lap of the entire race. At the end of 25-laps Cash Lovenburg crossed the line 1.3 seconds ahead of second to be crowned the 2019 Jr Sprint Clay Cup National Champion.
He came, he saw, and he conquered. Cash Lovenburg made his place in history as the fourth different Jr Sprint driver to earn this coveted National Title. It also marked his 5th win of the season, his 15th podium in 19 races, and his 18th top-5 of the season.
As the newly crowned Clay Cup Champ, Lovenburg hopes to bring that momentum with him back down to the Golden State as the run for the Keller Auto Raceway and Lemoore Raceway championship battles go down to the wire. That fight is far from over. The battle gets back underway August 9, at Keller Auto Raceway.
Will Cash return to his winning ways?
