PETERSEN MEDIA: Running the 40x on his machine on Saturday night paying homage to Shorty Chambliss, who he had the pleasure of driving for early in his career, Steven Tiner came up a little short of qualifying for Saturday night’s 54th Johnny Key Classic Presented By Al’s Roofing Supply 50 lap feature event.
“It was disappointing for sure,” Tiner said. “We had been pretty fast at Ocean Speedway all year, and I just couldn’t make it happen. I was hoping to have a good showing with the 40x on our car for the night, but it wasn’t meant to be.”
With 43 cars taking time, vying for 17 feature event spots, Tiner laid down a nice lap in time trials, as he timed his Larry Davis Farms/Wright Process Systems/BR Motorsports entry in 13th fastest, putting himself in the second row for his 12-lap qualifier.
With a different format in place for this event, Tiner had one shot to make the show, and a fourth place finish was necessary to make the feature event. When the race got started, Tiner fell back to the fifth spot, as he chased after Brent Kaeding.
Trying high, and low on the slicked off surface, Tiner couldn’t seem to make any speed, and would end finishing in the eighth spot.
“We just couldn’t seem to make any speed, and the result was us watching the feature event,” he added. “We will try and go over some things, and hopefully get things fixed for the end of the year.”
Steven and his Steven Tiner Racing team would like to thank Larry Davis Farms, Wright Process Systems, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, Elma Lanes, Harvest Supply, Powder Coat-It, SRP, Wilwood, FSR, Dan Olson Race Products, Sander Engineering, Sweet Manufacturing, Good Ridge, Schoenfeld, Western Metal Company, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.
2013 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-29, Wins-2, Top 5’s-11, Top 10’s-18
ON TAP: Tiner is seeking any opportunities to race this weekend, as his engine will be back getting freshened up.
