The Driver’s Journal- A New Look in 2020 for Tanner Carrick

2020 will be another busy year for myself, and I am very much looking forward to it. With the new year, comes a bit of a new look for myself as I have made the move to run USAC National Midgets with Petry Motorsports.

 

With Petry Motorsports, our main focus will be running with the NOS Energy USAC National Midget Series and supplementing available dates by running with the POWRi series.

 

I am really eager to get rolling with the Petry Motorsports team because in our limited work together so far, we have had some really fast racecars and I look forward to that translating into some wins.

 

I am excited, because I already feel extremely comfortable with all the guys, and I love the way they run their team, and how we all feel like one big family. Racing with Kevin Thomas, Jr, and Jerry Coons, Jr as my teammates, I look forward to what I can learn from them. In just a few races they have tough me a lot, and I look forward to continuing to learn from them.

 

When we do have breaks in our schedule, I will be traveling home to California to run with our family team, and the Carrick Motorsports Sprint Car. Another year in the sprint car excites me, because I feel year after year it helps me going to the midget, and the midget helps me in the sprint car. Different cars but getting on so many different types of surfaces and tracks is really helpful.

 

I am really thankful, and I enjoy having the opportunity to run two really great cars. I continue to learn as much as I can each night out and look forward to having a fun season ahead.
