Tyler Nelson Gearing Up for Shamrock Classic
By Jessica Jenkins
USAC's National Midget season opens in DuQuoin, Illinois at the Southern Illinois Center. For Tyler Nelson it's a chance to build on the momentum of his 16th place at the 1/6th mile back in December. Making his first start of the season in Jack Harris' #91, there is no limit on how high driver and team can go as they are becoming more familiar working with each other.
The Third Annual Shamrock Classic begins with the public drivers meeting at 3pm followed by hot laps at 4pm that culminates with the 50 lap midget feature. General admission tickets are $20 for adults or $10 for kids ages 6-12; 5 and under are free. Reserved seats are available for $26 at https://usacracing.t...classic-tickets. If you aren't able to make it, Speed Shift TV will have live PPV beginning at 4pm Central time for $24.95. Follow along on Facebook @TylerNelsonRacing for updates and pictures throughout the evening!
