Mark Tyson Caps Off 2014
Season On Confident Note
Berwick, PA (10/28/14)- Mark Tyson of Hatboro, PA has had a
racing season that’s been absolutely filled with trials and
tribulations. From battling health issues most of the season,
following by the closing of his home track half way through the
year, he kept his head held high and was determined to return to
the wheel of his #22 FireHouse Chevy Impala. Tyson was able to
make a comeback later in the year and last Saturday night
competed in the annual “OctoberFast” event at Mahoning Valley
Speedway in Lehighton, PA.
Tyson began the afternoon with a practice session and he wasn’t
totally happy with his car, which forced him to make a few
slight adjustments. The changes helped a lot and he had a good
run in his qualifier. He began the feature and started to work
his way through the pack early on but a few drivers in front of
him tangled and collected Tyson.
After pitting for quick repairs, green flag racing resumed and
again, Tyson started to make his way back, but that all ended on
lap 27 when nearly the same scenario took place, but this time
the air box on the car, which draws air to cool the radiator,
got damaged and the engine temp started to climb, forcing Tyson
to save the motor and end his night but not his outlook on the
"Despite getting collected in two on track incidents on lap 10
and lap 27 of Saturday's OctoberFast at Mahoning, the car was
working well and I made a little more progress learning that
track. There’s still a lot to learn here, but I still had a
blast! Hats off to all of the Santee's at Mahoning for putting
on a fantastic show. I'll be back!", noted an ecstatic Tyson
He continued, "With it being a season of medical challenges and
my home track closing, I was just glad to race one more time
before the car goes on jack stands for the winter."
Tyson was a little short with crew help over the weekend but
noted that his Dirty South Posse teammates went above and beyond
to help him out all season long, including Mitch Hawk, who drove
two races for Tyson when his doctors wouldn’t give him the
clearance to race at the time.
Tyson wasn’t crewless by any means Saturday, as many offered to
lend him a hand, if needed.
"Special thanks to my sons Tyler and Trent who helped me get the
car ready and loaded up last week. Huge thanks also to Zane
Zeiner, Michael Murray, and many others of the ZM team for their
support and also Del Morgan and family for their help at the end
of the night getting packed up."
Although the 2014 season is in the books, Tyson is already
excited about next season and said, "I’m looking forward to
April 2015 already. It can't come fast enough!"
