July 5th, 2014 - Tim Crawley Sweeps Holiday USCS Sprint Car Action

1Two weeks ago, Tim Crawley was 0-for-the 2014 season in USCS wins. Since then, he’s two-for-two. Crawley, the Benton, Arkansas native driving for renowned team owner Mike Ward, started on the K&N Filters Pole Position and sprinted away from Marshall Skinner following a restart at the halfway point of Thursday night’s United Sprint Car Series filtercharged by K&N Glen Francis Memorial Cup 30-lap A-main, never looking back en route to a wire-to-wire win and trip to RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane ahead of fellow Arkansas native Zach Pringle. The triumph was Crawley’s second straight USCS sprint car victory, and 67th career series win. Marshall Skinner, Brad Bowden, and Anthony Nicholson rounded out the top five finishers.

Winning for the third straight time in the past three events Tim Crawley overpowered the competition on Friday night at Diamond Park Speedway (Nashville, Arkansas). Eighteen entries were on hand for the USCS Sprint Car event, and an eighth to second run in his heat race put Tim on the pole for the feature. In the finale he proceeded to lead every lap to score the victory, which marked his fourth of the year. Terry Gray and Marshall Skinner rounded out the podium.

Saturday evening took Tim to his home track I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) for his final event of the holiday weekend. It proved to be another great outing as Crawley charged to the lead late in the event to claim the victory, which marked his sixth of 2014. Zach Pringle, Marshall Skinner, A.G. Rains, and Cody Gardner rounded out the top five finishers.

“We’re not gonna talk about (what happened in turn three), we’re gonna talk about that drive,” Crawley said in www.rockauto.com Victory Lane amidst a standing ovation from his home crowd. “I gotta thank Mike Ward; he stepped out of this seat about eight years ago and let me drive this thing and it’s been great. We fought hard for this one tonight; the track was tough around the bottom, and we needed a couple of yellows and got them. We started the year off slow and I had my head buried in the sand; I couldn’t win anything, but this team never gave up and I never gave up, and look where we are now.”
