PETERSEN MEDIA: Putting together consistent finishes during Western Sprint Tour Speedweek, Steven Tiner would represent the Golden State well as he finished second overall in the weeklong standings.

“We had a good shot to win the title, but our worst run of the week happened to be during the final night and we came up just a few points shy of the championship,” Tiner said.

Resuming his week on Tuesday night at the Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR for the third race, Tiner would time the Larry Davis Farms/Wright Process Systems/Deli Delicious entry in ninth fastest during qualifications.

Finishing third in his heat, the Visalia, CA driver would earn a spot in the Dash where his third place finish would line him up in the second row for the 30-lap A Main event.

On an extremely racy 1/3 mile speedway, Tiner would battle with the likes of Kyle Hirst, Heny Van Dam, and Justyn Cox during the course of the night. Fighting with Hirst for the final spot on the podium in the closing laps, Tiner would end up finishing in the fourth spot.

Traveling to Coos Bay, OR on Wednesday night to attack the Coos Bay Speedway, Tiner would time the Fisher Racing Engines/Harvest Supply/Powder Coat-It machine in fifth fastest.

Running third in his heat race, Tiner would finish fourth in the Dash and line up in the second row of the 30-lap feature event. Crews would re work the track during an intermission, and it would result in a very fast surface during the opening stages of the race.

Racing with Jake Wheeler and Trey Starks once the track began to widen out, Tiner would struggle to get moving forward as he would finish in the fourth spot for the second consecutive night.

Thursday would be a scheduled off day before the action dipped into California on Friday night as Tiner and his STR team checked in at the Siskiyou Motor Speedway in Yreka, CA.

Timing in sixth fastest on a hooked up surface, Tiner’s second place effort in his heat race would again propel him into the Dash. Finishing sixth, Tiner would grid the field from the third row on a surface that was not allowing for much passing.

Able to pick up a couple of spots during the duration of the race, Tiner would continue his Top-Five streak as he finished fourth for the third consecutive night.

The Speedweek finale would be at the Southern Oregon Speedway in White City, OR.

Qualifying fourth fastest in time trials, Tiner would continue his consistency as he finished third in both his heat race and the Dash. Lining up third in the feature event, Tiner fought a tight racecar as the track was still extremely tacky.

Having his hands full on this night, Tiner would slip back to finish in the eighth spot, and finish second in points, three points behind the eventual champion.

“It was disappointing to finish the week up like we did,” Tiner said. “We had been so strong all week, but it’s part of the spot. I want to thank all the people who made this trip possible for me again this year. I can’t wait to do it again.”

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.
