For immediate release: Kyle Amerson raced to his career-first USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour win in Helton Memorial at Dixie speedway on Saturday
Woodstock, GA - July 11, 2020 – Kyle Amerson from Matthews, Alabama raced to his career-first USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters main event win at historic Dixie Speedway on Saturday night in the twenty-seven lap 12th Annual Randy Helton Memorial Race. Amerson swept the evening’s USCS sprint car action by first winning the USC Hoosier Speed Dash. Amerson then won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat before parking his own #29 in the www.RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane for his final photo op of the evening to pose with the winner’s $2700 paycheck for his efforts.
Amerson was not only fast all evening but also had good fortune on his side. Amerson inherited the lead in the main event at mid race after early race-leader, Johnny Bridges from Cherryville North Carolina who was leading on a restart, and Danny Oliver from Pendergrass, Georgia who was following Bridges to the green flag front second position, both drove below and struck the restart marker (cone). Both drivers were called for cone violation and moved back two positions.
USCS Rookie of the Year points leader, Conner Leoffler from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, who started the main event in tenth place charged his way not the runner-up spot at the finish to mark down his best finish of the season with the series. Two-time USCS National sprint car Champion, Morgan Turpen from Somerville, Tennessee finished in the final podium spot in the K&N Filters third place. Johnny Bridges held on and challenged for second and third place the rest of the race finished fourth. 12-time USCS National Champion, Terry Gray who had fuel pump issues sideline him while leading both the Hoosier Speed Dash and the Butlerbuilt Third Heat rallied from his nineteenth starting spot in the main event to finish in fifth place after advancing fourteen positions. That was good enough to garner the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger award.
Jeff Oliver from Pendergrass, Georgia led the balance of the 22-car field to the finish line in sixth place after starting eleventh. Steve Surniak from Mooresville, North Carolina followed Oliver home in seventh place and Rookie sprint car driver, Hayden Martin from Olive Branch, Mississippi finished in eighth followed by another North Carolinian, Brandon McLain from Indian Trail, North Carolina. Mallie Shuster from Newville, Pennsylvania completed the top ten drivers.
