By Fully Injected Motorsports:
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (October 10, 2022) - Despite what may have been a rocky weekend in the Keystone State, Sheboygan, Wisconsin’s Scotty Thiel and Team 73 valued their track in Central Pennsylvania, aiming to put their notes to good use when the team returns to Posse Country in 2023.
Thiel, ace of the Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, KSI Supply, GRP Motorsports, Racers Hall, Triple X Chassis, K1 Race Gear, No. 73 sprint car, joined the infamous Pennsylvania Posse most recently in Port Royal Speedway’s Nittany Showdown, as well as Lincoln Speedway’s Brian Montieth Classic. The “Big Wheel” highlighted his weekend with a 20th-place score in Port’s $15,000-to-win Nittany Showdown finale on October 8, battling his way through the evening’s Last Chance Showdown to do so.
Thiel was scored 24th in Lincoln’s Brian Montieth Classic on Thursday, October 6; he was forced to pull off early due to a mechanical issue.
“It was a tough, competitive weekend in Pennsylvania, but you need weekends like that to improve your program,” Thiel explained, a five-time winner in 2022 including a pair of recent IRA victories over Labor Day weekend. “Hats off to my team. It’s not an easy trip from Wisconsin to Pennsylvania, but they were more than ready to head east and battle with the best. We’re only going to get as good as those we race with, so anytime we can take up the opportunity to race with the Outlaws in Pennsylvania, we’re going to do it.”
Upcoming plans for the “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 are uncertain. More news to be released in the near future.
