PLANO, Texas (May 11, 2020) – T.J. Michael’s first start of the 2020 season was impressive. Not only did the ‘Texas Traveler’ advance seven positions during main event action, Michael did so during his first-ever start for Clayton Snow Racing, all while competing at Marysville Raceway in Marysville, California, for the first time in his career.
Joining Marysville Raceway’s 360 sprint car field for the COVID-19 Challenge, Michael’s California debut on May 9 kicked-off with a fourth-place finish during heat race competition, soon followed by his skilled rally from the inside of row six to finish fourth during the evening’s main event. A restart with three circuits remaining allowed Michael to advance one final position to secure his aforementioned finish.
“That was a lot of fun,” Michael said, driver of the Snow Racing/West Coast Race Parts/No. 7 sprint car. “To be competitive like that right out of the box says so much about Clayton Snow and his equipment. Things just kinda clicked for us right from the start and we had fun the entire night. I’m excited for the opportunity to race for Snow Racing again in the future. I am more than thankful for the opportunity.”
Although Michael’s extended schedule is still uncertain due to ongoing restrictions as the result of COVID-19, the Plano, Texas-native will be making his way to Ohio to test his family-owned No. 8M sprint car next weekend. A return to California may arise if racing in the Buckeye State does not begin.
“I couldn’t be more excited right now,” Michael continued. “We’re hoping things get underway much sooner than later in other areas of the country. I want to put this momentum to good use.”
