INDIANAPOLIS – Tyler Courtney and Clauson-Marshall Racing have announced an expanded racing schedule this year that will see Courtney chase his second-straight USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series title.
Courtney will drive the No. 7BC midget with sponsorship from NOS Energy Drink in pursuit of the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series title.
In addition Courtney will also run a flex schedule of USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series and winged sprint car events for Clauson-Marshall Racing this season.
“2020 is going to be a fun year for us,” Courtney said in a press release posted on Twitter. “I am excited to go out and defend our NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Championship, as well as take on the new challenge of putting a win on top of our sprint car. Both challenges are going to be tough, but we have a great team behind us, and I know they are as up for for the challenges as I am.
“We still get to play around in the non-wing sprint car as well at all of my favorite places.”
Courtney has won consecutive championships in USAC competition. In addition to claiming the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series title last year, he also captured the 2018 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series title. He finished second in the National Sprint Car standings last year.
“We are looking forward to being a part of this next step with Tyler,” said Clauson-Marshall Racing co-owner Tim Clauson. “This is exciting not only for him, but for Clauson-Marshall Racing as a company. There is little doubt some of the biggest races include wings, so to be able to add a program that will allow us to be a part of all of grassroots racing’s biggest events, whether that be midgets, non-wing sprint cars and now winged sprint cars, really excites not only the car owner in me, but more importantly, the racer in me.”
