In Tyler’s first race at Langley Speedway he clocked the fastest lap of the race, avoid a massive pile up and finish 2nd in the 100 lap season opener finishing only behind the track champion Greg Edwards. At the end of the evening it was clear, everyone was talking about Tyler Hughes and the #8 car.
The return to Langley would not go as well for the team. After qualifying in third position, behind Greg Edwards and National champion Lee Pullium, Tyler would move from third to second place within the first 10 laps.
Unfortunately, contact was made between the 5 car and the 8 car coming out of turn two on lap 15 that would send Tyler into the wall ending the evening early for the #8 car.
Fortunately, the owners of the #12 LM would let Tyler start and park their car in the second race of the evening to remain in points contention. “We can not express how grateful we were that the #12 team was willing to help us out, they are truly a class act” said team owner Paul Green.
After two weeks of non-stop hustle to replace the front clip, and rebuild/repair the car the #8 late model is ready for Tyler to pilot to victory this Saturday night.
