Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider- Driver Exclusive. VISALIA, Calif. (July 22, 2019) -> Ty Lovenburg put in the performances of his career at the 2019 Clay Cup Nationals.
“Ever since that B-Main he’s been a whole new driver,” Brandon Lovenburg said. “Every time he’s gotten on the track since then he’s driven with the sole purpose of getting to the front.”
The bid for a transfer bread a transformation in Ty Lovenburg.
It was Friday, prelim night for the Clay Cup Nationals. Ty’s brother Cash was stealing the show by being the top performer in the Jr Sprint class and establishing himself as the man to beat. Somewhere in that time span Ty decided he wanted a piece of that spotlight.
His B-Main performance that night earned it for him.
After qualifying 17th and finishing 7th in his heat Ty Lovenburg found himself starting 7th in the B-Main. He needed to pick up three positions to advance to the feature. But when the lights came on and the green flag dropped Ty dropped the hammer.
He came through the field with tenacity and precision. He picked off cars like they were standing still. By the time the checkered flag waved not only was Ty in transfer position, he was in the lead. His 7th to 1st performance made a statement. It may have even made a statement to Ty himself.
The Friday night feature didn’t end up going as well. After suffering a small crash in the feature he came into Saturday’s finale 18th in overall points locked into the B-Main once again.
He would have to put in a repeat performance if he wanted to be apart of Saturday’s Clay Cup Finale.
He did it. Ty put the 01T into the show.
Ty took the green flag from the 18th position and put on another charge he’ll never forget. He took the green flag with one goal in mind: get to the front. In true fairytale fashion – He had no brakes. He just kept digging and digging, passing cars like a driver possessed. He wound up gaining 11 positions.
When the checkered flag waved at the conclusion of 25 laps Ty Lovenburg had come from the 18th position all the way to 7th. It marked his 14th top 10 of the season but by far his most stand-out performance to date.
Ty Lovenburg has arrived. His fight for a transfer transformed him as a driver.
How will he fare when racing gets back underway in the Golden State? Find out August 9th when Ty returns to the track at Keller Auto Raceway Plaza Park.
