SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (May 2, 2022) – It was not the road trip that the “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 had hoped for, but the lap time on unfrequented territory will ultimately prove beneficial.
Thiel, ace of the Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, No. 73 sprint car, joined the All Star Circuit of Champions for a two-day battle through Western Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio during the recent weekend, visiting Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway on Friday and Saturday, April 29-30, respectively.
Although his visit to Sharon for the annual Buckeye Cup ended in frustrating fashion, running out of fuel while leading a caution-filled B-Main, Thiel’s visit to Lernerville one night prior had plenty of shining moments, kicking things off with the fastest qualifying time in his respective group, which propelled the Sheboygan, Wisconsin, native to the evening’s All Star dash.
The recent Beaver Dam Raceway IRA Outlaw Sprint Series winner would go on to start eighth on the Lernerville grid, but to his misfortune, things would not improve, slowly fading on a slick and tricky surface before being scored 23rd.
“Not the weekend we wanted for our team, but unfortunately, those kinda come with the territory, but it’s up to us to find ways to improve and hopefully do things differently when we return,” Scotty Thiel explained, who dominated action at Beaver Dam Raceway one weekend ago. “Hats off to this entire team. They’ve been busting their butts all season long and I’m proud of what we’ve been doing. We have some tremendous support this season and it’s up to us to represent them at the highest level.”
The “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2022 campaign with a visit to the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 7.
