Bowling Green, OH (May 29, 2019) – Travis Philo and the Philo Motorsports team are ready to compete in one of their biggest events of the year this weekend, the $100,000 to win Sprint Car World Championship at Mansfield Motor Speedway.
Travis and the team are excited to get back to Mansfield Motor Speedway after having great success in previous events at the ½ mile speedway: a 9th place finish in last year’s SCWC, a 7th place run in the Great Lakes Nationals last August, as well as a 3rd place run with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions in 2017.
“With the weather forecast this past weekend we ended up taking Sunday night off and stayed in the shop to get ready for Mansfield this weekend. We’re as prepared as we can be and I’m excited to get back to a track where we have speed every time we’re there,” Travis said.
This year’s World Championship features an additional night of preliminary action, where the Control Design Solutions / Interior Supply backed No. 5T will compete in two separate nights on Thursday & Friday before competing for the $100K on Saturday. Drivers & teams will accumulate points every time they are on the track and at the end of the two prelim nights the drivers with the highest amount of points will start in the front of heat races on Saturday to get locked into the $100K to win feature. There is an added bonus to the prelim nights, where the winner of the A mains both Thursday and Friday are automatically locked into Saturday’s main event.
“Cody Sommer and his team have put together a very interesting format that should make for some great racing all weekend. I hope we are able to capitalize on a prelim night and get ourselves locked in or at least on the front row of a heat race for Saturday,” said Philo.
