Boulton Earns First Triumph of the Season in Borrowed Sprint Car
Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Aug. 27, 2020) - Tucker Boulton recently accomplished a goal that looked to be sidelined only a few weeks ago. In doing so, he built confidence that he can take into the rest of the season as well as next year.
Roughly a month ago Boulton crashed his family owned 305ci sprint car and thought he was left without an opportunity to race. Things turned around after a team offered up a newer car. So much so that the 17-year-old driver put the car in Victory Lane on Aug. 15 at Riverside International Speedway.
"It's great," he said. "To go out after tearing up our car and get in a car that someone is letting us use, it was awesome to earn a victory."
The triumph instilled plenty of confidence and that kept rising when Boulton recently received his new J&J Chassis for the 2021 season.
Boulton and his family plan to have a 360 sprint car engine and use the new chassis to take the next step in the young driver's career. There is no set schedule in place, but the plan is to travel more than in past years.
"I can't wait," said Boulton, who was off last weekend. "I'm super stoked. We are going to have a brand new motor that was never run before.
"It really helps going out to Riverside on your off week to watch and the same exact car you just bought goes out there and dominates. We got to watch and see it happen last Saturday, and it brings a lot of confidence and excitement for next year."
For now, Boulton is focused on the next race on his schedule, which is Saturday's Jim Huffman Memorial at Riverside International Speedway.
"I can't wait," he said. "We had a whole extra week to work on the car and make sure everything is right on it. We are going to go out as confident as we did last time and go get it done."

Boulton would like to thank NAPA in Millington, Tenn., DHR Suspension, Simpson Race Products and Jacqueline Savoy Photography for their continued support.
Bacon is Smackdown Ready after Sweeping Candyman Classic Double Features
Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (August 27, 2020) – Brady Bacon steps back into the familiar Hoffman Racing Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car for three nights of racing action this weekend as the USAC National Sprint Car series resumes with the “Kokomo Sprint Car Smackdown”.
The three-day blockbuster events gets under way with full preliminary programs on both Thursday and Friday that set the stage for Saturday’s “Smackdown” finale.
“This is one we always look forward to,” Bacon says. “We have always run well at it, it seems like a lot of thirds and fourths and just a lot of top fives. Now it’s time to go and get a win.”
Bacon goes into the three-day set after sweeping last Friday night’s “Candyman Classic” double features at Gas City I-69 Speedway aboard the Longworth No 410 Sprint Car.
After racing from fourth to win his heat race, “The Macho Man” needed just three laps to race into the lead from the fourth starting position in the first “A” Main and then rallied from tenth to take command 13 laps into the second “A” Main en route to checking out on the field to complete the sweep of feature events.
With a posted winner’s share of $2,020 for each feature along with bonuses, Bacon cashed in $4,940 for the night’s work.
Bacon rounded out last weekend by timing in fourth quickest aboard the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 USAC Silver Crown entry at Sunday’s “Hoosier Hundred” atop the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds mile oval only to get collected in an early-race melee that brought an early end to the day.
This weekend’s “Smackdown” action marks the first USAC competition since Indiana Sprintweek wrapped up on August 2.
Bacon enters the weekend sitting fourth in points, less than 100 markers out of the lead. It’s a position he looks to improve upon.
