COURTNEY CAPITALIZES IN LINCOLN PARK’S “BILL GARDNER SPRINTACULAR”
July 7th, 2018 by Wade Huisman
The roots of Tyler Courtney’s association with Lincoln Park Speedway run deep. In fact, his grandparents, Mike and Verla Farrar, owned and operated the joint for nearly two decades between 1981 and 1996.
Courtney didn’t get to experience much of his family’s era at the helm of the 5/16-mile dirt oval since he was a little tyke at the time. But on Friday night, he was able to experience what it was like to own victory lane at Lincoln Park, leading the final eight laps, and taking advantage of late-race misfortune that befell race leader Kevin Thomas. Jr., to win the 4th annual “Bill Gardner Sprintacular.”
