Night Of Firsts Ends With Shane Lively Taking TCM Stock Car Shootout Round Four
Shane Lively had a picture perfect night at Kartbahn Racing on Tuesday en route to his first TCM Stock Car Shootout victory.
Lively, who has competed at every event since the start of the series in 2016, set fast time in qualifying of the 22 drivers competing at a 17.989 second lap. Following an invert for the A Main of two, Lively started on the outside of the front row with former event winner Kyle Gammon to his inside. It did not take long for Lively to advance one spot to the lead, one he would not relinquish all race.
Lively held off Series win leader Craig MacDonald and INEX Winter Nationals Legend Pro champion Cory Hall for the win. Gammon kept with the leaders for most of the race but would have to settle for fourth with Scotia Speedworld Sportsman rookie Cory Leonard in fifth.
Completing the eight kart A Main included B Main winner AJ Watton, Dale Holman and two-time Scotia Speedworld Thunder champion Matthew Warren.
The competition was stiff throughout the field. Names you would typically see in the A Main, including two-time event winner Andrew Lively, Danny Chisholm and Megan Parrott, would not crack the final race on the night.
James Sample was able to avoid all the action in the C Main to take the win over Dave Watton and Jonathan Bull.
For Lively, Watton and Sample, it was their first wins at the TCM Stock Car Shootout. Lively also became the first driver to set fast time in qualifying to win the A Main.
The TCM Stock Car Shootout concludes Tuesday, March 20th with the inaugural TCM Trophy Dash. The TCM Trophy Dash is an invitational featuring the top 16 drivers from the four race series. A complete list will be released within the coming week.
