Steven Tiner Fifth at Trophy Cup


PETERSEN MEDIA: When the dust settled on one of the marquee events of the season, Steven Tiner crossed the finish line in the fifth spot and ended up seventh in the final Trophy Cup point standings.

“Trophy Cup is a race I really look forward to every year, and a race I really strive to do well at,” Steven Tiner said. “The last few years some bad luck as hampered us, but this year we were able to put a solid weekend together, and I have to thank everyone who made it all possible.”

Despite a minor hiccup during the Thursday night feature event, Tiner would come out on Friday night and redeem himself.

“Thursday night I made a huge mistake and really messed up Jason Solwold’s night,” Tiner said. “I still feel bad about it, and really apologize to those guys.”

Friday night Tiner would need to have a good night to put him in a good position for Saturday’s program. Timing the Larry Davis Farms/Wright Process Systems/Deli Delicious No. 94 sixth fastest during his qualifying flight, Tiner would run fifth in his heat race.

Forced into the semi, the Visalia, CA resident would pick up a second place finish and move into the 30-lap feature event where his point total would line him up 18th on the grid.

With track work making the track locked down for much of the feature event, progress was tough to make in 30-laps. From the ninth row, Tiner was able to work his way forward a

little as he took the checkered flag in the 13th spot.

Sitting 20th in Trophy Cup points heading into the Saturday night finale, Tiner would pick up some insurance points during his heat race by way of a second place finish.

Sitting 17th in points, Tiner would transfer directly into the 50-lap finale where he would roll off from the fourth row. On a racy track in the early goings of the feature event, Tiner would work his way up to third as he battled with Ryan Bernal and Henry Van Dam.

As the laps clicked off and the track began to get narrow, Tiner would find himself back in the fourth spot as DJ Netto was able to get buy him during an extended green flag run.

Sitting in fourth during the scheduled break, Tiner would then see Shane Golobic make a big move around the high side to put him back into the fifth spot as passing soon became extremely difficult. Holding his position in fifth when the checkered flag flew on the event, Tiner would end his weekend with a seventh place finish in the point standings.

“Overall pleased with how we performed at Trophy Cup,” Steven Tiner added. “It’s a tough race and it makes it even more tough when you only see the Thunderbowl once a year. Thanks to everyone who works so hard to make it a special one, and thanks to my guys and my family for all of their efforts.”

Steven and his Steven Tiner Racing team would like to thank Larry Davis Farms, Wright Process Systems, Deli Delicious, Fisher Racing Engines, Harvest Supply, Powder Coat-It, SRP, Wilwood, FSR, XYZ Machine, DMI, Dan Olson Race Products, HRP, Sander Engineering, Sweet Manufacturing, Schoenfeld, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.
