If you didn't know his name before last December you know his name now. Tyler Carpenter, one of the house cars out of the Kryptonite Chassis stable won the biggest win of his career last December. During the Gateway Dirt Nationals we all got to see the ultimate underdog story as the kid from West Virginia came to St. Louis and won in front of the dirt world against the best in the country. "I just want to be amongst em'" Tyler Carpenter said in December about putting Kryptonite Race Cars on the map. Tyler is taking that next step to try and put his name and chassis brand out there.

After multiple wins early in the 2020 race season he will look to try to roll that success over to the Summer Nationals Hell Tour that starts next Wednesday night at Brownstown Speedway. The highly followed tour will get Tyler in the limelight of the sport once again. The grueling tour that will hit 26 different tracks over the next two months is one of the toughest series' in all of racing.

Tyler will roll into Brownstown next Wednesday night with a load of confidence and desire. He wears his heart on his sleeve and that is what attracts a lot fans to his following. He will be sure to sell plenty of t-shirts as he rolls up and down the Hell Tour trail. As to how many of the Summer National shows Tyler commits to is still up in the air. We are awaiting a firm statement from Tyler Carpenter Racing on what the plan is over the next two months. Once we hear we will be sure to update. Stay tuned as "Country Roads Take Me Home" comes to a track in the Midwest near you!
