Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider – Driver Exclusive. ELK GROVE, Calif. (July 24, 2019) – > Devon Courtnier finished just outside the top five during Saturday’s Restricted Clay Cup Nationals finale In his, number 34, D1 Chassis.
While he narrowly missed earning a top 5 in the finals, Courtnier did enjoy a very consistent week at Deming Speedway.
Heading into the Clay Cup Courtnier was riding a wave of momentum having won three out of his last four previous races. He was on a hot streak. He hoped the streak would continue at the Pacific Northwest’s crown jewel event.
Originally, Clay Cup was scheduled for two qualifying nights. Saturday nights main event lineup would be determined based on the better of the two scores. Thursday nights portion was eventually cancelled due to weather. This left just one shot at making the show.
He was able to do just that.
Friday night Courtnier qualified the 34 4th quick. He parlayed that into a 2nd in his heat and direct transfer to the preliminary night main event. Prelim night main events were fully inverted allowing the higher point earners to maximize passing points. Courtnier brought the 34 home 10th earning his tenth top ten of the season out of twelve races to that point.
Going into Saturday’s finale he was 9th in total points earned in the Restricted 600 division. This lined him up on the inside of row five for the Clay Cup Finale. He was able to charge from 9th up to 6th where he eventually finished. At the conclusion of 25 laps it was just shy of a top 5 but his 11th top ten in just thirteen features.
Now the focus returns home as championship fights are going down to the wire. Just before heading to Washington Courtnier was able to earn victory at Delta Speedway. His round seven victory earned him the Delta Speedway championship points lead. With only a handful of rounds remaining the 34 now sits just two points ahead of second.
It’s going to be a fight to the finish.
The main focus for the 34 car this year is the Delta Speedway track championship. With four wins under his belt this season, three of them have come at Delta. Between Delta and Dixon he also boasts another seven podiums, eight top 5s, and now 11 top 10s in just 13 tries this season. The team may not be racing every week but they are making the most out of every time they race.
The 34 is on a hunt down for a championship. The journey continues Saturday night.
Can he make it happen?
