Tinkle Family Racing will literally have an overnight turnaround on the #53 minicup car. Zachary has a race on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at Anderson Speedway – his last points race with Central States Region Super Cups of the 2015 season. Having won two of the last three CSR feature races, Tinkle is optimistic about this race. Once the car is back in the garage on Sunday, it will be set up for the All American Speedway, loaded in the trailer, and on the road to Roseville, California by Monday.
Tinkle commented, “When we heard about this race at the beginning of the year, we really wanted to find a way to make it happen. Once the points schedule was out for Central States Region Super Cups, we realized we could actually make the timing work. It will be hectic, but it will be worth it.”
When asked why going to this race was so important to him, Tinkle replied, “I’m excited to race at this track and meet fellow minicup racers from across the United States and Canada. I can’t wait to meet people in the K & N Pro Series since I want that to be one of the next steps in my racing career. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime.”
Tinkle has had an amazing 2015 season. He finished second in the Rockford Speedway Wild Wednesday Championship, finished fourth in the championship for the Short Track Auto Racing Series (STARS) at Grundy County Speedway, has won three feature races with Central States Region Super Cups, and is third in championship points standings.
