Taylor Earns POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint Series Championship ILP 10/22/19

Taylor Earns POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint Series Championship Inside Line Promotions – CALHAN, Colo. (Oct. 22, 2019) – Zac Taylor, who is in his first year of driving a non-wing sprint car, captured the POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint Series championship thanks to a podium finish last Saturday at El Paso County Raceway. “What a learning experience this year was,” he said. “I learned driving a non-wing sprint car is so much different than a winged car. My dad learned so much about setups. It was just an incredible season. And to win the championship at a track where I won a winged championship a couple of years ago is even more special.” Taylor’s afternoon began with a charge from seventh to second in his heat race, putting him in the fifth starting position for the feature. “It was an afternoon show so traction was at a premium,” he said. “I ran the bottom at one end of the track and the top at the other. I got up to second and was challenging for the lead when the caution came out. The leader learned where I was running and he moved up and blocked. I ended up third.” Taylor noted that he may race his sprint car again the weekend following Thanksgiving in Arizona. “One of the teams that came up to Colorado to run with us was telling us about this show so we are talking about going,” he said. Taylor said he and midget owner Todd Henry are also looking at competing with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League this Friday and Saturday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. “Then we start getting ready for the Chili Bowl and the 2020 season,” he added.

Taylor Scores Forth Win, Leads POWRi Warrior Sprint League Championship Standings ILP 10/2/2019

Taylor Scores Fourth Win, Leads POWRi Warrior Sprint League Championship Standings Inside Line Promotions – CALHAN, Colo. (Oct. 2, 2019) – Zac Taylor captured his fourth victory of the season last Saturday at El Paso County Raceway during a POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League event. And if not for a broken cam spun, he may have had a shot at another win the same night in Todd Henry’s midget. The victory kept Taylor atop the non-wing sprint car series championship standings with just a pair of races remaining. “I had some great luck with the draw, getting the pole for the heat in both the sprint and midget and easily winning both,” he said. “In the sprint feature, we finally found something that made me totally comfortable. I’m adjusting better to the car. I just need more races. This is my first year racing a non-wing sprint car. “They gave me the option to go to the tail for a chance at more money, but I wanted to play it safe as we are leading the points with just a couple races to go.” In the midget, Taylor knew something was amiss after the heat race. “As I was pulling off the track it sputtered and died,” he said. “It felt like we ran out of fuel, but that wasn’t it. Todd went through all the electronics and it was all good so he was going to change the fuel pump. When he pulled it off he saw the cam spud was stripped. It really sucks because the track was good from top to bottom and we could pass cars with ease.” The week prior Taylor wrapped up a second-place finish in the POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association standings. “Todd said he will keep an eye out for another midget race or two before we start getting ready for the Chili Bowl,” Taylor added. His next race is Oct. 19th at ElPaso County Raceway, Calhan, Colo. Racing starts at 1:00 PM, with the POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League.

Taylor Rebounds Twice for Fifth-Place Finish at Honor Speedway ILP 9/5/19

Taylor Rebounds Twice for Fifth-Place Finish at Honor Speedway Inside Line Promotions – PUEBLO, Colo. (Sept. 5, 2019) – Zac Taylor had to rebound from a pair of incidents to come from the tail and score a fifth-place finish last Saturday at Honor Speedway during a POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association event. Taylor won his heat race, but a dice roll of 12 started him 12th in the feature. “We got going pretty good and I was battling for fourth and the guy ahead of me caught a rut,” he said. “My right front hit his left rear and the guy behind me got into me and I got on my side. They pushed the car back on all fours and I went to the tail. We battled back to ninth and got spun out again. I got back to seventh at the finish, but two cars were ruled ineligible so they awarded us fifth. “It was a crazy race. I bet we ran 100 laps. It took an hour to complete 30 racing laps. I was mentally and physically exhausted.” The POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League was supposed to compete the same night, but Taylor and only one other car showed up and the other competitor had mechanical issues. Taylor was allowed to run laps, which was beneficial to the team as they prepare for the end of the season events. “We went there with the intention of working on our dry-slick setup,” he said. “My dad and Todd Henry found a setup I really like. We are getting closer and I can’t wait to go to El Paso County Raceway in a couple of weeks. We aren’t racing this coming weekend and are looking at getting back to it in a couple of weeks.” Taylor returns to action on Sept. 21 at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., with the RMMRA before venturing to El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo., on Sept. 28 with the POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League.

QUICK RESULTS – Aug. 31 – Honor Speedway in Pueblo, Colo. – Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 5 (12). SEASON STATS – 21 races, 3 wins, 13 top fives, 15 top 10s, 18 top 15s, 21 top 20s UP NEXT – Sept. 21 at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., with the RMMRA; Saturday, Sept. 28 at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo.
