After a three-month hiatus amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Tyler Bruening made a triumphant return to racing on Saturday night.
Bruening traveled to Hamilton County Speedway (Webster City, Iowa) for the 1/2-oval’s 2020 season opener. A dominating performance in his Skyline Motorsports No. 16 Bennett Explosives/ Bruening Rock Products/ Capital Race Cars Super Late Model garnered Tyler his first win of the season.
“I have to thank our team for their hard work. It’s been three months since we last raced. To come back and get a win the first night says a lot about our team and these Capital Race Cars,” said Bruening. “I’m looking forward to the Lucas Oil events in the next two weeks. Thanks to all the fans as well, I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.”
After starting fourth, Tyler posted a second-place finish in his heat race behind Jeff Aikey, earning him the third spot on the feature grid. Outrunning polesitter Casey Skyberg in the 20-lap affair, Bruening rolled to his first win of the season over Skyberg, Jason Hahne, Todd Cooney, and Aikey.
