TAYLOR HOLDS HIS OWN USING 305 ENGINE DURING ASCS NATIONAL TOUR EVENT – ILP 10/11/17

Taylor Holds His Own Using 305 Engine During ASCS National Tour Event

Inside Line Promotions – CALHAN, Colo. (Oct. 11, 2017) – Zac Taylor’s plans to lease a 360ci engine to compete with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour last weekend didn’t materialize. However, the teen and his family decided to forge ahead with their 305ci motor and the results were more than respectable.

The Friday portion of the doubleheader at El Paso County Raceway was rained out. The skies cleared Saturday for the second night of the marquee event at the track where Taylor was recently crowned champion.

Taylor started on the pole of his heat race, which had heavy-hitters like Hall of Fame driver Sammy Swindell and ASCS national champion Wayne Johnson in the mix.

“I knew the only chance I had was to get out front early,” Taylor said. “The ASCS starts are different from what I’m used to and they called me for jumping and put me back to third. I ran third most of the race and got passed late and ended up fourth.”

Taylor lined up 12th in the feature and nearly earned a top-10 finish as he placed 11th.

“We were simply down on horsepower,” he said. “My mom read some of the comments from the ASCS drivers who said they had a hard time figuring out the track. I think it’s one of the easier tracks we run on. I wish we would have had a 360 motor.

“I had some goals in mind going in. First, I didn’t want to finish last. Second, I didn’t want to get lapped. Third, I wanted to finish ahead of a 360. Finally, I wanted to at least maintain position or better my starting spot. By the results it was a very successful weekend.”

As for the rest of the season?

“The ASCS people want us to come to their race at Cocopah (Speedway in Somerton, Ariz.),” he said. “If we can get a 360 motor we might do that. Our plan this winter was to buy one so we will see.”

Taylor said if the 360 engine deal doesn’t materialize soon his family will continue working on their plans to compete at the Turkey Night Grand Prix midget race Nov. 23 at Ventura Raceway in Ventura, Calif., and the Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Okla., Jan. 8-13.

“In the past we have leased a ride, but we’re talking with Todd Henry who has given me a great opportunity to race his midget the past two summers and we might just take his midget to the Chili Bowl,” Taylor said.

Oct. 7 – El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo. – Heat race: 4 (1); Feature: 11 (12).

TAYLOR ADDS TWO MORE CHAMPIONSHIPS TO IMPRESSIVE SEASON – ILP 10-3-17

Taylor Adds Two More Championships to Impressive Season

Inside Line Promotions – HOLYOKE, Colo. (Oct. 3, 2017) – Zac Taylor added two more championships to his growing résumé over the weekend.

Taylor earned his first ever track title at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo., two weeks ago and with a runner-up finish at Phillips County Raceway last Saturday he picked up the Blood Sweat and Tears/Colorado Alliance Tour championship along with the International Motor Car Association Colorado State title.

“I was sweating it out this weekend,” he said. “I had never competed for a championship until this year and it was nerve-racking.

“To win championships you have to be consistent, work hard and get a little luck and we did all that this year. I can’t thank my mom and dad and all the sponsors and family and friends enough for all of their support.”

After Friday’s action rained out last weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Phillips County Raceway, where Taylor charged from sixth to a third-place finish in his heat race. That started him on the inside of the second row for the feature.

“I was right on the leader’s tail the whole race,” he said. “I kept pressuring him hoping he would make a mistake, but he didn’t. We will take second and the championships.”

Taylor is working on leasing a 360ci engine to drop in his family-owned sprint car to compete for the first time with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Friday and Saturday at El Paso County Raceway for the Fall Nationals.

“We are very familiar with El Paso County and I have a ton of confidence going into this race,” he said. “I’m excited to get more seat time behind the wheel of a 360 sprint. Hopefully this will lead to more 360 stuff next year. We will really work hard this offseason to put a motor together.”

QUICK RESULTS –

Sept. 30 – Phillips County Raceway in Holyoke, Colo. – Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 2 (3).

SEASON STATS –

25 races, 7 wins, 16 top fives, 17 top 10s, 17 top 15s, 20 top 20s

Taylor Earns El Paso County Raceway Track Championship ILP 9/26/17

Taylor Earns El Paso County Raceway Track Championship

Inside Line Promotions – CALHAN, Colo. (Sept. 26, 2017) – Zac Taylor can add “track champion” to his resume. The teen earned his first ever title at El Paso County Raceway recently aboard his family owned 305ci winged sprint car.

“The races were cancelled last Saturday because of weather,” he said. “I would have liked to have raced for the championship, but we earned this with how consistent and fast we’ve been all year. We won three in a row leading up to that.

“I want to thank Steve Davis, Andrew Kaiser, Cody Kaiser, Tim Kaiser and Loretta Kaiser for all their help on the car. I would like to thank the fans that support my racing, too.”

Taylor has the opportunity to win two more championships this weekend. He will compete Friday and Saturday at Phillips County Raceway in Holyoke, Colo., where the Blood Sweat and Tears Racing Series and Colorado Alliance Tour championships are on the line.

“If I win it takes care of itself,” he said. “Otherwise I just have to finish ahead of Lonnie Cox to win the championships. I’ve never won a championship let alone three in one year.”

Taylor recently wrapped up his season driving Todd Henry’s midget with the Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association. He led a lot of the race on Sept. 16 at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., before a late-race incident relegated him to a fifth-place finish. Taylor finished fourth in the RMMRA championship standings.

“It was a 33-lap memorial race and I led 20 laps,” he said. “The car was really hooked up and I pulled the wheels off the ground and when it came down it bent something in the front and I fell back to fifth. But it was a great year and we learned a lot and I got better every time out. I can’t thank Todd Henry enough for the opportunity.”

Besides the upcoming weekend racing, Taylor plans to drop a 360ci engine in his sprint car to compete with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at El Paso County Raceway Oct. 6-7 for the Fall Nationals.

“I’m really excited to battle with the best 360 drivers in the country at my home track,” he said.

QUICK RESULTS –

Sept. 16 – I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo. – Heat race: 2 (-); Feature: 5 (2).

SEASON STATS –

24 races, 7 wins, 15 top fives, 16 top 10s, 16 top 15s, 19 top 20s
