Blown Motor Ends Tyler Young's Day Early At Motor Mile Pro Cup Race

Tyler Young's Randco Industries Chevrolet Impala Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series car was a "hot rod" on Saturday afternoon. Then, misfortune struck on lap 161 of the Heritage Truck Centers 250 at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va. when he suffered a blown engine and wound up with a 12th place finish.

Tyler set fast time during the qualifying session and started the race from the pole. He got his 5 bonus points for leading a lap and then faded back in the field to conserve his car for the second half of the race.

"We set the air pressures a little bit too low for the start of the race but that really didn't make a lot of difference in our strategy," The Texas native said after the event. "We wanted to just save the car and not run too hard the first half so we would have something for J.P. and Jeb and those guys at the end."

When the race resumed following the ten minute halfway break on lap 125, Tyler began to notice a difference in the motor. He said it "went flat" and didn't have the power he needed. He decided to just try to ride it out and get the best finish he could to accumulate valuable points.

By lap 161 he was in the pits and out of the event. It was tough break considering he went into the day just 15 points behind series points leader J.P. Morgan. Motor Mile was the first event in the series' championship chase.

"Cody (Sauls) and the whole team worked so hard to make sure we had a car we could win with at Motor Mile," Tyler lamented. "I really hate this for them. It's nobody's fault. It's just racing. We'll have it rebuilt and ready to go for the next race. The worst part is it definitely set us back in the points with just three races left. It will be all about winning races now."

Tyler's next race will be Saturday, October 6th at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, N.C. This race is the second of four "championship chase" races for the Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series.
