BOLTON, ON – Following a first career Sunset Speedway Mini Stock victory on July 7th, rising star Tyler Seaboyer is dedicated to craft a follow-up performance this Saturday.
“We want to make sure we do everything we can to not be a ‘one-hit wonder’,” says Seaboyer. “We’ve gotten better in every race we’ve run this season. It’s just all about stringing laps together. The more repetition you have and the more seat time you have – the better you’re going to be.”
Since breaking into the division last season, Seaboyer has continued to showcase an evolving skillset, and credits his recent breakthrough to a new level of understanding the ins and out of the notoriously competitive Mini Stock division.
“This is the most comfortable I’ve felt since I started racing,” notes the approachable sophomore. “There’s so much more to these cars than just putting your belts on and doing your window net up. I’m learning that more every Saturday.”
“We’ve come along way as a team,” adds Seaboyer. “We’re making adjustments on race night that we would never have had the confidence or the knowledge to make last season. Now – we’re able to change the car to better suit the driver as opposed to the other way around. And that’s been a huge difference-maker for us.”
With half of the 2018 schedule remaining, the Bolton, ON racer is confident that his team is not finished with their time spent in victory lane.
“Absolutely – we’re good enough to win again,” insists Seaboyer with a smile. “We’ve worked on our stuff night-in and night-out and it’s all starting to pay off. Our whole team is believing in what we’re doing and we’re all putting in the effort to make sure we’re constantly improving.”
“Now, I just need to hold up my end of the bargain. All those hours we put in away from the speedway don’t mean anything if I can’t make the right decisions on track. If I can do that – then you’re going to see our car parked under the flagstand again this year.”
